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!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
