#51 – Duncan Shiek – “Barely Breathing” – (1996)

This is Duncan Shiek’s only real song of note. When it was released, it set the record for longest time on Billboard’s Hot 100 (55 straight weeks) – but it never hit number one. The music is fairly catchy, but it’s the lyrics that really draw you in. This song remains one of the finest examples of 90s singer-songwriter rock.
