Our Top 10 Spin Doctors songs list takes a look at a band that defined the anti-grunge sound when they released one of the biggest albums of the decade of the 1990s entitled Pocket Full of Kryptonite. Perhaps that’s why the band was so successful as not everyone embraced the sounds of Nirvana and Pearl Jam. The country rock Louisiana cajun soul sound of The Spin Doctors was a welcome breath of fresh rock and roll. Everyone loved the band and that amazing album. Of course they never achieved the same success ever again in their career as they did with their debut album, but that’s alright, they sure did make a mark with their first. The Spin Doctors would release five studio albums and twelves singles over their recording career that lasted between 1992 and 2005.

# 10 – Can’t Kick the Habit

We open up our top 10 Spin Doctors songs list with the grooving song entitled “Can’t Kick The Habit.” This is a very slow laid back song that sounds like it was recorded more in the early 1970s then the 2000s. Yet, we really dig this one. The song was released on the album entitled Nice Talking To Me. The album was released in 2005. The song was “Can’t Kick The Habit.”stands as the final single release from the band The Spin Doctors. The song did not break into any of the Billboard music charts in the United States.

# 9 – How Could You Want Him

Continuing with our top 10 Spin Doctors songs list we take a listen to the great track “How Could You Want Him” The song was released on the album entitled Pocket Full of Kryptonite. It was the fifth and final single released from the album. The album was released in 1992 during the peak of the grunge era. The song just missed the US Billboard Hot 100 peaking at number 102.

# 8 – “The Bigger I Laugh the Harder I Cry

In the number eight spot on our top 10 Spin Doctors songs list we take a listen to the very cool rocking soulful song “The Bigger I Laugh the Harder I Cry”  The song was released on the album entitled Here Comes The Bride. Do you remember that tv show from the late 1960s with Bobby Sherman? Well this song has nothing to do with it. The album Here Comes The Bride was released in 1999. The song did not chart but it’s really cool. It has a bit of a Police songs feel.

# 7 -“Have You Ever Seen the Rain?

Everyone knows this classic Creedence Clearwater Revival song entitled “Have You Ever Seen the Rain?” The Spin Doctors did a great laid back version of this classic song. The song was released on the album entitled Turn It Upside Down. It was the band’s second album and follow up to their mega selling Pocket Full of Kryptonite album. “Have You Ever Seen the Rain?” was released as the second single from the album. However, it failed to chart.

# 6 – You Let Your Heart Go Too Fast

In the number six spot our top 10 Spin Doctors songs list we present this very cool groovin song entitled “You Let Your Heart Go Too Fast.” The song was released on the album entitled Turn It Upside Down. The album was released in 1994. The song was a hit on the US Billboard Hot 100 peaking at number forty two. It was a much bigger hit on the US Mainstream Rock Tracks Charts where it broke the top 10 hitting number eight.

# 5 – What Time Is It

At the halfway point on our top 10 Spin Doctors songs list we turn back to their legendary album Pocket Full of Kryptonite and the song “What Time Is It?” The song was released as the fourth single from the album. It was the only single out of the five singles released from the record that did not break into the Billboard Hot 100 charts. Still, it’s one of our favorites and we love the loud heavy guitar work on this one.

# 4 – Jimmy Olsen’s Blues

We are always going to love pop references to Superman and The Spin Doctors did just that with the great single “Jimmy Olsen’s Blues.” It’s about time Jimmy Olsen got some love as Clark always stole the show when he put his cape on. The song was released on the album entitled Pocket Full of Kryptonite. The song broke into the US Billboard Hot 100 peaking at number 78.
