3How Far We've Come

This song is amazing. It is simply the best song I have ever heard. It is easily the best of Matchbox Twenty's songs- this song has amazing lyrics, an amazing tune, and it's just stunning. Even though it's pretty high up on the list, I still can't believe that this is anything less than number one. It is such an upbeat and inspiring song, and the first time I heard it, I couldn't decide whether I should cry, scream, or laugh. I know it may seem like this comment might be too long or maybe "overly exaggerated", but this doesn't even begin to express the greatness if this song. Seriously. It is stunning and should be number one, no question about it.

Just like unwell, How Far We've Come is one of those matchbox twenty songs that doesn't quite sound like their normal sound. When Matchbox Twenty expands on their normal sound, we get great songs like this. Plus, the lyrics send a real message about American society.

Uplifting, brilliant, amazing vocals.
This is definitely the best matchbox20 song ever.

Absolutely brilliant. Nice and upbeat right from the start.

Amazing! especially the piano version

This is such a good song. I like the way it starts out. I saw them in concert a couple of months ago and right before they played tis song they put clock counting from 2:55 till 3am and then they started playing it. Matchbox 20 has become my favorite band even though I'm only 14. You can't even compare them to one direction.

This ia such a great song with awesome guitar sounds. Stirs my soul with memories.

This isn't even close. #1 is 3AM

This is my favorite matchbox 20 song... I know all of their first 3 cd's like the back of my hand and this is my clear favorite.

"It's such a beautiful, emotional song. The music, the lyrics, and the way it's sung all together make this one of those songs that grabs you and never ever lets go."

True lyrics and so much great emotion! This entire album is brilliant but this song gets me every time.

I love this song

I think this song is awesome, simply cause it is! Car crashes, fast wind, wallet stealing, Can't get enough...

Great intro and all around great song

The guitar intro followed by the chorus is just plain amazing.

This is an anthem song of the times..

7Bright Lights

Best Matchbox 20 song. Was at a Rob Thomas concert recently and he said it is probably his favorite. The arrangement is pure genius and Thomas' lyrics are strong as usual.

Matchbox 20 has always been my favorite band since I was little. This was the first music my dad would play for me in the car when driving me to school. I love every song on this list, but Bright Lights is the No. 1 spot in my heart. I could listen to it on repeat forever.

So much raw emotion in this song. Especially when it talks about "For God Sakes turn around" so powerful...

This song is so emotionally provoking, I want to laugh and cry and hug someone all at the same time-so relatable. I also love when he says "God sakes turn around! "

It's a hard tie personally between this and "If You're Gone" since I grew up with them, but I remember actually being on the verge of tears to this song at how much I could relate and how much emotion Rob Thomas put into this. Truly stellar song.

I grew up learning that you can only take so much. That is what this song says to me. Sometimes you want to push someone around because of how much they take advantage of U.Sometimes you just have enough. Everyone reaches a breaking point.

Easily their best song. Brilliant vocals and deep lyrics. Their single most recognizable piece.

My all time favorite song. So much emotion, and it gets me every time

9Long Day

I'm such a huge matchbox twenty fan I know every single one of their songs by heart but this one is definitely my favorite. It's just the emotion in his voice and the music that really can make you smile and laugh out loud. I just love this song so much and I listen to it everyday!

If I could choose one song to listen to on a long road trip, it would be this one. Classic.

This should be much higher. It is a better song than She's So Mean.

16All Your Reasons

This should be in at least 10th place


This song should be in the top ten. The lyrics are powerful, the music is unique and the song paints a picture in your head. - jMag220


Happy and sad at the same time. I just can't stop listening to it.

Most under-rated song I have heard. Obsessed with this song!


I really like this song. It's not on the radio too often. But I have it on my playlist. I saw the video. I saw matchbox 20 live in concert two weeks ago. They didn't play this song. It's still a very good song.

This is a cute song, I wish there would be someone who sing it for me :')

This is a sweet song! Should be on the top ten!

Come on. How is this not in the top 10
