Which Nelly single do you prefer?  

49 members have voted

  1. 1. The superior "Whoa Nelly" top 10 single?

    • I'm Like a Bird - You're beautiful, that's for sure.
    • Turn Off the Light - It's getting so lonely inside this bed.

I can't believe I hadn't heard Turn Off the Light til this year. It's a bop. Not I'm Like a Bird peaking at #9, a Toxic and Oops tea :jonny5: surely it was bigger and more impactful than its peak suggests. I have to go with that timeless excellence!

they're both absolutely brilliant. imagine releasing those two as your first singles? like no wonder they f*ckin smashed :jonny5:

 

for me, Turn Off the Light has the edge. I mean the instrumental is breathtaking, the lyrics are gorgeous, the layering throughout, the BRIDGE with the guitar solo and her VOCALS. one of the best pop songs of the 2000s, and it was released so early on :jonny2:

Both brilliant. Whoa Nelly is just a masterpiece

 

But I'm Like A Bird just has that sad yet happy feel to it which not many manage to achieve

Queen of 1-2 punches 

 

Whoa Nelly: I'm Like a Bird-Turn Off the Light

Folklore: Powerless-Try

Loose: Promiscuous-Maneater (1-2-3 punch actually with "Say It Right")

I’m Like A Bird gets so repetitive towards the end if they did something different with it the levels it would’ve climbed :jonny2:

The ending of "I'm Like a Bird" is actually my favorite part - sonically it's an amazing ending to the song
