The Crowning of Ian Brown's Top 10 Solo Songs

They don't call him King Monkey for no reason.

The Crowning of Ian Brown's Top 10 Solo Songs

Some call him King Monkey, others call him a "God-like genius," but his real name is Ian George Brown.

Ian Brown first emerged to the music scene in the 80s with his rock band, The Stone Roses. The Stone Roses dominated the Manchester music scene with their singles such as "I Wanna Be Adored," and "Waterfall." Ever since then Ian Brown was crowned as one of Manchester's most iconic musicians.

In 1998, following the split of The Stone Roses, Ian Brown ventured out on a solo career with the release of his debut album, "Unfinished Monkey Business." His solo career solidified Brown as one of the most remarkable artists.

Here are 10 of Ian Brown's best solo songs:

1. Stellify

'Stellify' is one of Ian Brown's greatest songs. It was originally written for Rihanna, but Brown ended up recording it himself. The upbeat rhythmic piano solidifies this song as one of his best!

2. Corpses In Their Mouths

'Corpses In Their Mouth' comes from Brown's debut solo album. It has a chilling and dark vibe that sets the whole tone for the song.

3. For The Glory

'For The Glory' is one of Brown's most beautiful songs. The lyrics encapsulate what one does when they are deeply in love with someone. It remains one of my personal favorites.

4. Own Brain

'Own Brain' is one of Brown's most upbeat songs! It is one that is sure to get you tapping your feet.

5. Home Is Where The Heart Is

'Home Is Where The Heart Is' is one of the most lyrically beautiful songs Brown has ever written and recorded. It is so touching.

6. Be There

Unkle's collaborations with Brown have always been great, and this one happens to be the greatest!

7. Blue Sky Day

'Blue Sky Day' comes from Brown's most recent solo, Ripples. It is a wonderful song with uplifting vibes that will make you dream of a blue sky day.

8. In The Year 2525

Although this is a cover of a song originally recorded by Zager and Evans, this cover will get you dancing and thinking about the future.

9. Keep What Ya Got

Brown teamed up with music legend and songwriter, Noel Gallagher, for this fantastic tune.

10. F.E.A.R

'F.E.A.R' is one of Brown's most iconic and most well-known songs. What makes it so remarkable is that each one of the lyrics spell out F.E.A.R. Cue the mind blowing!

Has this list got the f.e.a.r?

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
