My HeartMy Heart has to be the most beautiful love song ever and it's definitely a fan favorite. It's one of Paramore's most highly requested songs to be played live and here they do at the 2008 OC Fair in California. The lyrics, the raw emotion and the complete self-abandonment is what makes this #1 on my list. There's two versions of this song, the acoustic and the "screamo." I've attached the acoustic version on the left because it really showcases Hayley Williams' vocals at its finest. Plus, I'm in awe of how torn up my heart feels at the end of this performance. She starts singing at 0:27, and ever known for her close interactions with the crowd, ends with a surging 2-minute singalong. If you're heart isn't on the ground by the end of this song, you're pretty much a rock in my book.BUY @ amazon
Josh Farro screaming into a mic, though? You can't miss it. Here's another killer performance of "My Heart" performed in the UK in 2009. Which one do you like better?
Brick by Boring BrickIf you want energy, then here you have it. One thing that Paramore doesn't shy away from is propelling forward. The introduction of this song itself is like a mini vengeance.BUY @ amazon
Make that major vengeance. Paramore is tearing down the fantasy of fairy tales one brick at a time, and each lyric and chord--executed with such conviction--proves that there ain't no stopping them now.
And Hayley's outfit looks cute here.
That's What You GetHayley Williams' vocals here are crystal clear. This is as good as it gets.BUY @ amazon
Hands down, "That's What You Get" is the athem on Paramore's "Riot" album. It's such a happy song, and you can't help but shout along!
Playing GodThis is to me is a good song because of it's simplicity. There's nothing really sophisticated about it, and that's why it works. The lyrics are powerful enough to hold everything together and the chorus is really catchy. The overall vibe is groovy, something to bob to. Surprising, in a good way, because Paramore usually requires a headbang.BUY @ amazon
Emergency"Emergency" is one of Paramore's earliest singles and it's still one of their best. It's got as much emotional depth as their other songs and a badass guitar riff to keep it going. The lyrics also take it to another place.BUY @ amazon
