The Top No Doubt Songs
With Gwen Stefani declaring that her days as a solo artist are over, we are excited for the full-force return of No Doubt. Celebrate the return of the band by taking a look at the list of the Top No Doubt Songs from our friends at Pop Crush.
Here’s the Top 5:
5) ‘Underneath It All’
The slower tempo, reggae fusion love song was written by Stefani and the Eurythmics’ Dave Stewart while Stefani was in London visiting now husband Gavin Rossdale. It’s featured in one of my favorite movies, 50 First Dates.
4) ‘Hella Good’
This track has a groovy bass line, and borrows San Fran lyrical slang, Queen and Afrika Bambaataa influences. Roger Sanchez’s remix of the song won him a Grammy Award for Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical.
3) ‘It’s My Life’
To coincide with both No Doubt’s compilation album and box set, the group covered Talk Talk’s 1984 synthpop record ‘It’s My Life.’ It was the last No Doubt song released before the band went on hiatus and Stefani launched her solo career.
2) ‘Don’t Speak’
From ‘Tragic Kingdom,’ ‘Don’t Speak’ became No Doubt’s most successful song, breaking airplay records and earning the group their only Hot 100 No. 1 hit, as well as a Song of the Year Grammy nomination.
1) ‘Just a Girl’
Once Gwen’s brother Eric left the band in 1994, the group was forced to write their own music, which is evident in the style change found in ‘Tragic Kingdom.’ ‘Just a Girl’ was the first and arguably best single from that album, penned by Gwen and guitarist Tom Dumont. The lyrics address female stereotypes: “Don’t you think I know / Exactly where I stand? / This world is forcing me / To hold your hand.” It’s rockin’, girl power message brings this tune to the No. 1 spot on the Top No Doubt Songs.
