Top 20 Metric Songs

Metric was a band I fell in love with early in my music obsession phase in the early 2000s. As I've grown up and my tastes have changed (and improved) I realized they weren't quite genius like I used to insist. However I still think Metric is a really good band. It seems like every release fits neatly in the 7-8 our of 10 rating range. Translation is that they've done a lot of good without quite getting to great. Though you can never be absolutely sure so early, after about a dozen listens of Synthetica I think they finally got to great.

Perry,

It's a totally underrated song. One of my favorite songs of all time.

Gimme Sympathy is overrated, Handshakes should be somewhere on your list

Handshakes? Really?? It's one of Metric's most annoying songs.

Empty is a good song. Stiff competition though. Lots of good Metric songs to choose from.

This is the last and only time I come to Rock "Czar's" opinion page of best songs from metric. What a garbage 1 and 2 are those even top 20? No wet blanket, no raw sugar.. 4 through 8 I'll take but your top 2 are weak sauce all night long!!

For me, the best metric song is "Help, i'm alive". But the songs of the list also are great

ok, first of all, the twist , police and the private and black sheep should be on this list. in addition love is a place or wet blanket should be #1 on this list...although this is only my opinion.. others may think differently...

Take slow deep breaths, and you should concentrate on the exact dream that you want to see.
It is an extreme meditation state with the opportunity for super-learning.
Onnly after you have mastered remembering your dreamswill you
be able to procee to the next step.
