Alicia Keys' Best 5 Songs

By Mike Flanagan

The career of the young and talented Alicia Keys has been surprisingly long for her age. She has produced scores of pop music hits through the course of the last ten years or so, and it's time that we recognize some of her best work to date.

1. The number one song on the list here is her hit song, No One. With all of the high notes she hits in this song, you can tell that Ms. Keys has expanded both her sound and her range. The music video is just as enjoyable as the song is.

2. This one takes us back a decade, as "Falling" was Alicia Keys' first major music hit. This came off of her debut release in the later part of the last decade, and boy, has she made her impact known since then.

3. The Diary of Alicia Keys was one of her most successful albums through her career so far, and the song "If I Ain't Got You" was an instant hit. Her work on the piano in this song is superb.

4. Yet another great song by Alicia Keys is "My Boo". This is a duet, as the credit goes to Usher since it appeared on his CD, though Alicia Keys played an integral role in the song and it wouldn't have been nearly as special without her.

5. Superwoman - The final song on this list is another relatively new one. "Superwoman" documents all the struggles women go through in all of the world.

It has been used for a ton of commercials, television shows and award shows. This is on the same album as the #1 song on this list, "As I Am."

This was a tough list to make. Alicia Keys is a valuable artist, but she should be recognized for her best work. Narrowing it down to five was tough, and I apologize ahead of time for showing inadvertent favoritism. - 30538
