The Black Eyed Peas have had quite a career path. After putting out two albums that would be considered underground rap they added Fergie to the line up and have since switched up their style towards more dance oriented electronic sounding pop. Now naturally this hasn’t made all of their old fans happy but it does give people from many different groups of people the chance to experience lots of musical genres all in one groups catalog. When putting together this list I went through each of their albums and pulled what I thought were their best songs off of each. Now I probably missed many but that is to be expected and so the list below is my listed opinion of the Black Eyed Peas best songs.
The Beginning– The title track from their latest album.
The Best One Yet (The Boy)- Probably the best song from that album.
Don’t Stop the Party– Song off of The Beginning which should play well in the clubs.
Boom Boom Pow– This song was all over the charts when it was released, I’m sure you’ve heard it.
I Got a Feeling– Awesome single, the instrumental is really upbeat and makes you want to dance.
Showdown– Showdown is another track that is just full of energy.
Meet Me Half Way-Simplistic lyrics but a good hook makes this song.
Don’t Phunk With My Heart– Another single, I remember this one in the clubs back in 2005 the girls always loved it.
My Humps– Ok this song got on my nerves after a while but I still had to include it on this list.
Don’t Lie– More of a pop rock sound on Don’t Lie.
Where Is the Love– Black Eyed Peas team up with Justin Timberlake for a more serious song.
Let’s Get Retarded– This song was featured in countless movies and commercials a few years back and seemed like you couldn’t escape it.
Labor Day– A cool sample from the song The Grunt.
Joints & Jam– I loved this song when it came out in 1998 and then I lost track of Black Eyed Peas for a while but this is a great single.
Karma– From their Behind the Front, pre- Fergie days.
Clap Your Hands– Another one from their debut album so of course it’s different from the new stuff. But if you listen to the lyrics parts of this sound like they could still be apart of the new stuff if you just backed it by a dance beat instead like the lookie lookie lookie part.
Love Won’t Wait– Nice rap song featuring Macy Gray.
Weekends– Great song from Bridging the Gap.
Calito New York-Black Eyed Peas and De La Soul on one track is awesome.
