#24 – Matchbox Twenty – “Push” – (1996)

Yourself or Someone like You launched five (5!) big singles onto the pop charts (okay, I didn’t research to see if they all charted, but I have heard them all on the radio). I generally consider “Real World” to be the definitive song of the five, but I think this is the best. There were a lot of pop songs dealing with heavy issues like abuse in the 90s and they all still maintained an element of cheerfulness… weird. “3 A.M.” is the other great one.
