The 5 Greatest Journey Hop Songs Ever (In My Smug Opinion)


One of the best journey hop songs change from daily and individual to individual, however there are a couple of standouts that appear to be withstanding the take a look at of time. Any record of nice journey hop has to have massive names like Huge Assault, Portishead, and Boards of Canada, however what about Radiohead?

Wait, Radiohead? Properly, okay, they don’t seem to be actually identified for his or her journey hop music, however Zero 7 actually pushed the 1997 observe “Climbing Up the Partitions” into the hit class by remixing it (and put themselves on the world’s radar within the course of).

So what are one of the best songs within the journey hop class then? It is at all times debatable, however listed here are 5 to contemplate.

  • “Unfinished Sympathy” (Huge Assault) – It is a bit of a toss-up between this one and “Teardrop.” Actually, something put out by Huge Assault may give some other observe of theirs a run for its cash, so it is exhausting to choose a favourite. Nonetheless, this stays one among their hottest tracks to today.
  • “Bitter Occasions” (Portishead) – Simply three years later, Portishead got here out with this observe, which is a bit mindblowing and completely satisfying to take heed to. I imply, who does not wish to hear Gibbons repeating the unhappy phrases, “No person loves me, it is true”? It is sufficient to make anybody cry.
  • “The State Of The Union” (Thievery Company) – One other one among my favorites, Thievery Company has not often didn’t please followers. This specific observe introduced a spirit of protest to the album (together with yet another tune). Downtempo protest music is each welcome and heartwarming in an age the place punk rock and folks have one thing like a monopoly on the style.
  • “Rue The Whirl” (Boards of Canada) – This title is a enjoyable play on phrases – or moderately, on sounds, and digital music is all about sounds when you concentrate on it. Enjoyable reality: it was utilized by Mercedes Benz for a business in 2007. No marvel. It is nice music to take heed to within the automotive on a protracted highway journey… or between errands.
  • “Climbing Up The Partitions (Zero 7 Remix)” (Radiohead) – This is the oddball within the bunch, however I do suppose this observe deserves some credit score. Zero 7 is a fairly superior band anyway, however mixing Radiohead bumped them up even larger, for my part. By the best way, additionally they remixed Lenny Kravitz and Lambchop earlier than they ever launched an EP or album with unique music underneath their very own group title.
