Our Top 10 Joss Stone Songs list takes a look at one of the most soulful singers to arrive on the music scene in the past twenty years. Joss Stone is a perfect example of the differences between the United States and the United Kingdom as far as taste in music goes. In similar fashion to Amy Winehouse, Joss Stone  found instant success in the UK when she released her first album. In fact, in the UK, Joss Stone had five charting singles on the UK music charts from her first two albums. In the U.S she had none. Eventfully Joss Stone did find some success in the U.S., but she has been a far bigger star in the United Kingdom.

Joss Stone’s debut album was released in the U.K and around the world in 2003 entitled The Soul SessionsJoss Stone’s follow up album Mind Body & Soul was released one year later in 2004. Three years would pass by before Joss Stone would release her third record in 2007 entitled Introducing Joss Stone. In 2009, she released Colour Me Free!, in 2011 LP1, in 2012 The Soul Sessions Vol. 2 and her most recent album as of this writing was released five years ago in 2015 entitled Water for Your Soul

Our Top 10 Joss Stone songs list is just a sampling of some of our favorite Joss Stone Songs. If you are unfamiliar with some of her work, we hope this list inspires you to check out her entire catalog. We tried to include songs from all aspects of her career. Of course, there are many missing, but we think this will serve as a great starting point.

# 10 – Super Duper Love

We open up our top 10 Joss Stone songs list with a track from her first album entitled “Super Duper Love (Are You Diggin’ on Me?) Pt. 1.” We wanted to open up this Joss Stones songs list with a great one. The song appeared as the second track on the album. “Super Duper Love (Are You Diggin’ on Me?) Pt. 1” was written by Willie Garner. The song was originally released by Sugar Billy in 1974. Joss Stone’s first album entitled The Soul Sessions was an album that consisted entirely of covers. And what great cover versions they were.

# 9 – No Man’s Land – feat Jeff Beck

When one of the greatest guitarist of all time meets one of the most soulful singers of the past twenty years, sparks will fly. And that’s exactly what happened when Joss Stone and Jeff Beck teamed up to record this non-album single “No Man’s Land.” The song was written in 1976 by Eric Bogle. The song was written as a tribute to young soldiers killed in battle. It utilizes themes that go back to the 18th century in European History. It’s a a folk song that has been covered by hundreds of artists.

# 8 – The Anwser

This great grooving song “The Anwser,” was released on Joss Stone’s 2015 album Water for Your Soul. Its such an inspiring song that just fills your heart with hope and passion  This is a great one. It was released as the album’s second single. The song was written by Joss Stone, Jonathan Shorten and Conner Reeves.

# 7 – Pillow Talk

One of our favorite songs of all time meets one of our favorite singers of all time. Joss Stone’s cover of “Pillow Talk,” just oozes 70s soul. Her laid back vocal approach on this one defines just how brilliant and talented a singer she is, as singing soft is ten times harder than letting loose. A great addition to this top 10 Joss Stone songs list to simply define her versatility and talent.

# 6 – Tell Me What We’re Gonna Do Now

Continuing with our top 10 Joss Stone songs list we turn to her great album Introducing Joss Stone. This was Joss Stone’s third album . It was released in 2007. The album was a huge success in the United States as Joss Stone’s record company got behind a mass campaign to break the singer in the U.S after she had found great success in the U.K. The song “Tell Me What We’re Gonna Do,” was released as the album’s second single.

# 5 –  Cry Baby / Piece of My Heart with Melissa Etheridge

We could not out together a top 10 Joss Stone songs list without including this dramatic performance that Joss Stone celebrated with the legendary Melissa Etheridge at the 2005 Grammy Awards. Many singers have tried to cover Janis Joplin songs but could never come close to matching Joplin’s iconic vocals. Joss Stone had no problem with this one. Her incredible performance was one for the ages. When Melissa Etheridge joined Joss Stone on stage while she was  batting cancer, the audience went wild. This performance will go down as one of the greatest in Grammy Awards history. The live performance was also released as a single. Do not miss watching this.

# 4 – Fell In Love With A Boy

This great Joss Stone cover of the classic White Stripes song “Fell In Love With A Boy,” was released on Joss Stone’s debut album The Soul Sessions. Wow, talk about really reworking a song. This sounds nothing like the original and really speaks to how brilliant an artist and singer Joss Stone is. You know Jack White had to be digging this.

# 3 – Tie – You Had Me /Right To Be Wrong / Spoiled

Sorry, but we are going to cheat just a bit here. Joss Stone’s second album Mind Body & Soul stands as one of the great rock and roll soul albums released in the past twenty years. We were at a loss for how we were going to pick out our favorite songs from this album since the record is just packed with great ones. So, in the end, we decided to initiate a three way tie to be placed on this list. And we still got one more to go. If your only going to pick up one Joss Stone album, Mind Body & Soul is the one to get.

# 2 – Don’t Cha Wanna Ride

As we close in on the number one spot on this Joss Stone songs list, we present the great track “Don’t Cha Wanna Ride.” The song was released on the album Mind Body & Soul. It was the fourth single released from the album and the second one to reach the UK top 20. It stands as our favorite track from the Mind Body & Soul album and one of our favorite Joss Stone songs of all time

# 1 – Tell Me About It

Our number one pick on this top 10 Joss Stone songs list is the classic Joss Stone track “Tell Me ’bout It.” The song was released on Joss Stone’s third album Introducing Joss Stone. The song was the lead single from the record. It was the first Joss Stone single to break the U.S. Billboard Top 100. The song was more successful in the U.K as it was a top 40 hit on the Eastern side of the Atlantic. The video for the track was amazing as is the song, and of course as is the great Joss Stone

Rob De Luca of Spread Eagle, Sebastian Bach & UFO: 10 Albums That Changed My Life From humble East Coast origins to grandest stages worldwide, veteran bassist Rob De Luca has seen and done it all. De Luca first hit the local Boston rock and metal scene in the late 80s after meeting guitarist Paul DiBartolo, bonding over Van Halen before forming Bang. Regional success came quickly, but eventually, the members of Bang went their separate ways, with De Luca and drummer Tommi Gallo heading to NYC and hooking up with Ray West and, later, DiBartolo to form Spread Eagle. By 1990, Spread Eagle was on the fast track, with a contract through MCA Records and a self-titled debut album poised to crush skulls. But poor timing and MCA's sad indifference left Spead Eagle out in the cold despite being a hard-boiled answer to Guns N' Roses's West Coast sleaze. Spread Eagle's first chapter came to an end in '95. As for Rob De Luca, his nimble fingers and gift for melody and songwriting kept him moving forward. Soon, he found a gig with former Skid Row frontman Sebastian Bach and the legendary outfit UFO. And in 2010, after coupling up with Ray West and his cousin Rik De Luca, Spread Eagle retook flight. During a break from Spread Eagle's increasingly busy touring schedule, Rob De Luca dialed in with to run through the ten albums that changed his life. But only after adding, "I made a playlist of these songs, including some I've written or co-written. Do you hear any of these albums' influence on me?" Listen here: 10) Gentlemen by Afghan Whigs (1993) Here's an entry that was so important to me. This may be the darkest break-up album of all time. Greg Dulli has been in many projects, but I feel Gentlemen is his zenith. Somewhat undefinable at times but always profound and honest. Listen to "Gentlemen," "Fountain and Fairfax," and "What Jail Is Like." 9) In on the Kill Taker by Fugazi (1993) By this time, I had been sucked in and spit out by the major-label record industry. Glam came and went; grunge was history, too. I was searching for new sounds. When I heard Fugazi's twin guitar approach, I knew this was what was missing. Fugazi may be considered a less polished sound than the albums above; however, once you "get it," it hits you like a ton of bricks, and there's no going back. From the moment I heard Fugazi, I went to every NYC show after. It's easily some of the best concerts of my life, and possibly my favorite bassist in Joe Lally. And their DIY ethics refused to charge us more than $5 a show! In on the Kill Taker is a powerful album demonstrated in songs such as "Smallpox Champion," "Great Cop," and "Public Witness Program." 8) Appetite for Destruction by Guns N' Roses (1987) I discovered many of these albums (sometimes long) after they were released. However, I was at the right place at the right time for this one. Steve Ostromogilsky had a Berklee College of Music lunch card and used to sneak out sandwiches for me. One day, he invited me to hang out at his place and listen to music. As we got off the train, he put Sony Walkman headphones on my ears and said, "Hey, check out this brand-new group." A song like "It's So Easy" was so different from the popular Sunset Strip sound at that time. Me and about 499 other informed rockers were lucky enough to see them on their first East Coast tour at the sold-out Paradise on Commonwealth Avenue, Boston (the same street Aerosmith started on). I saw Gn'R every tour after until I took a break when Buckethead joined. Gn'R is the band I've been lucky enough to see the most times live, almost 100! Everyone on this album is just stellar. Axl [Rose] had the tones, power, melodic sensibilities, and foresight to do what no other singer did then. Slash's playing was beyond memorable. Duff [McKagan] is one of the most underrated bassists in rock history, and learning his Appetite basslines is a masterclass. Steven [Adler] had the natural swing, and Izzy [Stradlin] was the secret weapon songwriter. Everything that's been heralded about this gem is deserved and true. Check out "It's So Easy," "Out Ta Get Me," and "Mr. Brownstone.' 7) Wish You Were Here by Pink Floyd (1975) Another contender for my favorite album and band of all time. Using The Beatles machine (same recording studio, engineer, record label), Pink Floyd made what I feel is their strongest, most cohesive album (my second favorite of theirs would be Animals). This list mainly consists of bands with an instantly recognizable sound. Floyd is certainly no exception to that! This album included a solid handful of undeniable rock radio classics, bookended by two halves of the mind-blowing song "Shine on You Crazy Diamond.' That song was written about former band member and founder Syd Barrett. It would be hard to live in a world without this album. Check out "Welcome to The Machine," "Shine on You Crazy Diamond (parts 6-9),' or even better yet, listen to the whole thing in one sitting! 6) Decade by Neil Young (1977) About this time, I started playing guitar. As a beginner, it was comfortable jamming to this album because the chord changes were simple—a great "first ten years" retrospective of Neil's stunning, unique songwriting. Neil is a treasure who always writes from the heart and stands up for what's right. Check out "Southern Man," "A Man Needs a Maid," "Down by The River," and "After the Goldrush." 5) Highway to Hell by AC/DC (1979) When I heard this album, I was firmly "me." My life would be 100% focused on hard rock music forever. AC/DC are like air; they're ubiquitous. Everyone knows them and their incredible songs. However, as a young teen in Wilmington, Delaware, I only had WMMR 93.3 FM Philadelphia and a few friends to inform me about the world of Rock outside my bedroom. AC/DC had not gone mainstream, and their albums were available primarily in the USA as imports. To put things more in perspective, I only knew two people in the world who had heard of AC/DC. A friend had an import that we played in Steve Buckley's basement, which sounded ripping. When Highway to Hell was released, WMMR started spinning the title track, and I immediately bought the album, listening to it every single day after school. Then WMMR announced AC/DC was coming to the Spectrum in Philly, supporting Ted Nugent! I liked Ted but loved AC/DC, so my good friend Mick Cummins and I bought tickets, and he drove us up to the Spectrum (where we saw most of our concerts). Bon Scott was in fine form, and the band went over great. Although the crowd knew Ted better, Angus [Young] wouldn't let anyone upstage him. I'll never forget it! Unfortunately, Bon would be gone in 6 months. Check out "Walk All Over You," "Touch Too Much," "Shot Down in Flames," and "If You Want Blood (You Got It)." 4) Toys in the Attic by Aerosmith (1975) By the time I heard this, I was now in my teens. I had a childhood friend up the street, Jim Linberg (we're still good buddies). His older sister had a great album collection, including Toys in The Attic. Once I heard that groove, my taste changed. I lost interest in rock music that didn't have some sort of "swing" feel to it. I think Rocks is a slightly better Aerosmith album (and possibly my favorite album of all time), but both are perfect or very close. Check out "Uncle Salty," "Adam's Apple," "No More No More," "Round and Round," and "You See Me Crying." 3) Alive! by Kiss (1975) When I was still a little kid, I asked for Cheech and Chong's Up in Smoke album for Christmas. The entire family came over for an enormous feast, and I dropped the needle. When my mother heard the content, she turned off the album and said I had to exchange it. My mom was cool, but I was young and knew much more about life than she suspected. Anyway, the next day, she drove me back to the store. In the music section, promoted on an "endcap" was a Kiss Alive! display. I had never heard of Kiss, but that cover picture told me I had to have it! My first foray into hard rock. Check out “Strutter.” I went through my Kiss phase very quickly, I believe in a matter of months because I discovered the previous entry, Aerosmith's Toys in the Attic. 2) Honky Chateau by Elton John (1972) When I was a wee lad, my parents bought a used Volkswagen camper van from my uncle Ozzie. My favorite Elton John album is Yellow Brick Road, but Honky Chateau is great and easily one of his best. It sent me down a lifelong rabbit hole of loving everything about the 1970s partnership between Elton and lyricist Bernie Taupin. The simple beauty of voice, the master songwriting, the perfect backing band, the clear, unobtrusive recordings, and always Bernie's incredible lyrics. The day this album was released, Elton became an unstoppable force that conquered the music industry. Check out "Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters" and "Rocket Man." 1) Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band by The Beatles (1967) Another tape that was included in the VW Camper. The van had a bunch of music tapes, and one was Sgt Pepper. I was too young to understand the sophistication of the music, but that was one of the many skills of The Beatles. They attracted listeners at every level, even little kids. I still feel that immediate connection to Sgt Pepper; now, I hear so much more. It's an album that changed the world and the world of music. Check out "Lucy in The Sky with Diamonds," "A Day In The Life," and "Fixing a Hole."
