The Top Ten

1
Unwell
Dude this song is number 1, no argument!
This is my favorite song I love it to death no I love it beyond death it's meaning is so true that everyone is screwed up in some way shape or form, they were at one point the number one band in the country I will always believe that they are better than maroon 5 because no one but matchbox twenty can put a bango on a song and get a top five hit long live matchbox twenty
The song that first made me fall in love with matchbox twenty

2If You're Gone
Great song. The best ever.
This song is just awesome, and it really makes you think. Well it makes me think.
Reminiscent of what life is

3How Far We've Come
Motivational and so true.
Uplifting, brilliant, amazing vocals.
This is definitely the best matchbox20 song ever.
NO ARGUMENT!
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.

43AM
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.

5Bright 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.
So much raw emotion in this song. Especially when it talks about "For God Sakes turn around" so powerful...
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.

6Bent
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
A great song what else to say.

7Back 2 Good
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.
I love them all, but this has to be the best!
True lyrics and so much great emotion! This entire album is brilliant but this song gets me every time.

8Push
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.

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

14Downfall
I could make an argument for just about any song on this list. For me though Downfall is my all-time favorite. I hear so many influences in the music and love the arrangements. When the backup choir kicks in a whole range of emotions just well up from deep within, it reminds me a little of Foreigner's "I Want to Know What Love Is" and just like it this song I believe withstands the test of time and had it not been for the lack of airplay could have had the same success as Unwell & Bright Lights.
I play this a lot when I'm on the road and sing along loud. One of their best. Shame it didn't reach higher on the charts and got better airplay.

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.
