Joe BB Kings August 2015-9

R&B singer Joe Thomas is without a doubt a legend and we’re excited to feature him in the latest edition of Top 10 Best Songs list. Perhaps our most ambitious task with this feature yet, it’s sometimes easy to forgot that Joe has been at this for well over two decades now. He’s also had more hits than you can count on your fingers and toes, so revisiting his discography will be fun.

Joe has released twelve albums to date with the latest being “My Name is Joe Thomas” in 2016. In our most recent interview with Joe which we just published during the release of that album, he hinted that it may be his final album, so it’s important to continue to celebrate his legendary career.

You can see we had a hard time just choosing ten. That’s why our honorable mention section is pretty extensive as well.

Without further ado, here is our list of The Top 10 Best Songs by Joe, in chronological order:

All the Things (Your Man Won’t Do) (from the “All That I Am” album)

Back in 1996, this song became Joe’s original standout single and eventually drove his sophomore album “All That I Am” platinum.

Good Girls (from the “All That I Am” album)

The relatable vulnerability that Joe showed us in this song has made it a timeless jam.

The Love Scene (from the All That I Am” album)

The type of sensual R&B slow jam that Joe made a name for himself with from the start.

I Wanna Know (from the “My Name is Joe” album)

Timeless, just like the legendary career of Joe. He can barely sing this song at his shows because his fans sing it so loudly. Certainly a sight to see and a testament to it’s power.

Let’s Stay Home Tonight (from the “Better Days” album)

Packed with an infectious groove, Joe led off with this single from his 2001 album “Better Days”.

My Love (from the “Aint Nothing Like Me” album)

Why Just Be Friends (from the “Joe Thomas, New Man” album)

If you’ve had a chance to catch Joe live, then you know he likes to come out grooving to this song. It provides a perfect uptempo compliment to his many slow jams.

Worst Case Scenario (from the “Signature” album)

Joe has made a name for himself by putting his heart on display through vulnerable slow jams, and “Worst Case Scenario” is one of the best examples.

Dear Joe (from the “The Good, The Bad, The Sexy” album)

See our previous write up. Joe is a master of turning the heart break song into a melodic ballad.

If You Lose Her (from the “Bridges” album)

This song was the final single on his last album “Bridges”, and while it was not as successful as some of his previous hits, it was vintage Joe through and through.
