DIVAS DIVINE: The Top 60 Songs of Destiny's Child
Due to insistent public demand (hahahaha!), I now begin my Destiny's Child countdown. Don't forget to vote (in the poll above) for the song you think will be #1 in my list. Let's start with the first five.
This is one of the ballads from The Writing's on the Wall
, I think it's an okay track, Darryl Simmons wrote better songs for other R&B artists during this time. I used to skip it a lot when I first heard the album, but I think it's safe to occupy the lowest spot in my countdown.
59. I KNOW
This song was included in the soundtrack of The Fighting Temptations
, it's a gospel/inspirational song which sounds like it can be part of Kelly's Simply Deep
album. I love the acoustic elements in this track.
58. WITH ME (featuring Jermaine Dupri)
When I first saw this video back in 1998, I thought that they were already in their thirties! The song is okay, but I think there were better tracks on the first album that could have been chosen as a single. The song peaked at #19 in the UK, which is not a bad chart performance considering that Destiny's Child was a new group at that time.
This song samples the amazing ballad "Inseparable", and showcases harmonious vocals from Beyoncé, Kelly and Michelle. It has a Diana Ross and the Supremes feel to it, especially when Kelly starts to speak in the song. This is one of the good throwback songs from the Destiny Fulfilled
56. GET ON THE BUS (featuring Timbaland)
I think that this is another okay single, it sounded like the cheaper-sounding sister of Aaliyah's "Are You That Somebody?". The song was part of the Why Do Fools Fall in Love
soundtrack, and I used to catch this video in MTV back in the day. The song was later included in international versions of The Writing's on the Wall
