Do you remember Feel Good Inc.? The main hits of the cult virtual band Gorillaz

Remembering the best creations of Gorillaz...

Top best tracks of the animation band Gorillaz

Gorillaz is a world-famous virtual band founded in 1998 year Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett. The project includes a vast fictional universe surrounding the "virtual group" itself, consisting of four animated members. When Gorillaz first entered the music industry arena, they achieved huge success that no "virtual" or "cartoon" band has ever achieved. No one has yet managed to create such an insane canonical journey that Gorillaz is now known for. Their debut album Gorillaz (2001) showed a very simplistic approach to trip-hop exploration, which fits well with their dark and confusing universe ... The record sold a multi-million Gorillaz almost the whole world spoke. The identity of the people behind the colorful animated characters has long remained a mystery. But today Gorillaz is this good old band, well known to everyone. Let's remember the best tracks of the animation band below...

On Melancholy Hill

The wall of synthesizers sounds confident and does not subside until the song itself ends. All the positivity gained from something as warm and sunny as a beach is marred by the absence of reality, since the world is made of plastic. And synths do the same with real emotions 2D

DARE

An incendiary track, the video for which scored more than 200 million views on YouTube! The song was released as part of the album Demon Days 2005 year… Recorded in collaboration with Sean Ryder, the composition is notable for the fact that the main vocals of the song are led by the band's guitarist Noodlenot a vocalist 2D, as it usually happens in Gorillaz tracks.

"Glitter Freeze"

Purely synthetic club rhythms and melodies are woven into the physical embodiment of what a rave is: a sparkling spiral of movement and glamour...

"Every Planet We Reach Is Dead"

The title of this song translates as "Every planet we reach is dead". Gorillaz made a huge compositional leap from their debut album to Demon Days, but the features of their original "I" still remained. "Every Planet We Reach Is Dead" is an empty artifact of their humble beginnings, wrapped up in a magnificent instrumentation system that combines synth keyboards, electric guitars, orchestral passages, and an electronic filter that brings it all together...

"O Green World"

Of all the sinister tracks in the discography Gorillaz "O Green World" can also be the most melodic...

Dirty Harry

The echo of children's voices singing along in the chorus sounds strange for a Gorillaz song, but is nevertheless welcomed by fans ...

"Slow Country"

First days Gorillaz weren't filled with happy beats or upbeat lyrics, but much of their depression may have been hidden behind the apocalyptic universe they filtered it all through. "Slow Country" this time it seems very real. Dealing with the inevitable problem of loneliness, 2D pours out all his feelings in the same numb tone as always. The accuracy of these individual lines is incredible: "But try not to laugh / You won't get paid for what you love..."

"Fire Coming out of the Monkey's Head"

This track is based on a much more direct approach to songwriting: it paints a great metaphorical picture of their dark world...

Tomorrow Comes Today

The only part of the song that seems really alive (it includes echoed percussion, bass and muffled vocals) 2D), is a periodic harmonica, which is the most suitable and appropriate ...

"Rhinestone Eyes"

The synths hold the song together, not letting it go for a minute... The chorus is actually entirely instrument driven, with a few background "mmmm" from 2D. But, as in many other tracks of the group, a very aloof and poetic 2-D is hidden behind a veil of bright electronics. The relationships he describes aren't detailed, but specific lines like "I'm the scary gargoyle in the tower" will tell you exactly how he feels, and it's pretty powerful.

Pac-Man

Latest albums Gorillaz (beginning with Humans 2017 years) deviate more and more from the usual style of the group, but Pac Man 2020 year is the exception to the rule. In an effort to replicate the low-bit nature of retro gaming, the repetitive rhythm of hip-hop wraps in minimalism…

Feel Good Inc.

Is there a better known track Gorillaz, how Feel Good Inc.? Hardly... The track includes the legendary bass line: it sounded amazing in 2005 year, it still sounds amazing today, many years later... However, the importance of this song lies in its comparison with the rest of the band's music. Throughout their first two albums, the Gorillaz spent time creating a doldrums for 2-D, but also mostly for the world the band lived in, through the release of emotions. Feel Good Inc. takes this negativity and cynicism and expresses it towards others as a criticism of things like culture's ability to brainwash people and self-indulgence that people use to distract themselves...

"Clint Eastwood"

Track "Clint Eastwood" easily won first place, just because of the iconic nature of the song and what it did for the band at an early stage of ascent ... Of course, a catchy video also plays a big role. By the way: it was he who introduced many to the band... The song tells the story of everyday melancholy struggles and, despite the fact that it exudes a relatively sad aura, ends on a somewhat joyful note. This feeling grabs you at the slow pace at which it is delivered.
