My favs are: Brokenpromiseland, Thorn in my side, Superman Tonight and Bullet!

I remember JBJ saying that that Thorn is "his motivation", his motivation to wake up everyday, to work, to live in general...
Awesome song indeed.

Even when it came out, I always found myself singing right along with Fast Cars. The melody just sucks you in. I think most people hate it purely based on the title, which gave way to a running gag of ridicule.. making up other song titles in that vein. The chorus is actually quite good. I love how it builds out from the first chorus to the second.

The only thing I don't like is the bridge. I don't hate "Sha Las" as much as some do here, but it just doesn't add anything to the song.

To me it's filler because the metaphor of cars and highways has been done to death by Jon and I wish something a little more groundbreaking was used in place of that song. Melody wise it's.....fine!

Matt you are totally on point and my brain agrees but for whatever the reason I still gravitate back to it and always listen to it when it shuffles in rotation.

Yepper! And since Fast Cars is one of my favorites anyway, it plays like a great sequel to me.
