#69 – Matchbox Twenty – “How Far We’ve Come” – (2007)

Exile on Mainstream – while a play on the Rolling Stones’ classic album Exile on Main St. – was essentially a greatest hits album from Matchbox Twenty. It featured 11 of their biggest this and six new songs. This was the top of the new songs and a big hit single for the band, who hadn’t released new material in five years. The song could’ve been released on any of the band’s previous albums – that’s how Matchbox Twenty it is (unlike their newer stuff which sounds like Rob Thomas solo stuff). It peaked at #3 on the Adult Contemporary Chart, hitting #11 on the Hot 100. It’s awesome.
