Natalie Imbruglia is a great singer and her songs are amazing to listen to. She started her music career in 1998 and so far has released four albums and several singles. The Australian beauty’s single Torn was the most successful song in her career and it topped the music charts in many countries. However, there are a few other great songs out of her four albums that also deserve to be mentioned. Here is a list of the best 10 Natalie Imbruglia songs ever created.
10. Invisible Things
This is a song from the debut album Left of the Middle and it’s a nice track with a catchy chorus line. It was released in 1997. This song charted only in the UK and in the US, making a mediocre success in both countries. The song has won an award for the best track of the year in New Zealand. She promoted this song in February 1998 performing it live on Top of the Pops.
9. Wrong Impression
The second album White Lilies Island came out after 6 years of the Left of the Middle release. The album did not receive much critical acclaim, but the second track Wrong Impression was more successful than its predecessor. It was released in November 2003 and it was the only single from the album. It reached number 23 on the UK Singles Charts and was used in many TV ads. The music video for this song was filmed in Argentina and made her more famous than ever before.
Well, all know that Torn is the most successful single in Imbruglia’s career. However, it appears in this list only because the rest of Imbruglia’s songs are much better. Torn was released in 1997 and reached number 2 around the world. It topped the charts only in Australia, becoming her first number 1 single. The song was a huge success and it is also the most successful song of the 90s. It has been covered by many artists since its release.
Smoke is another single from the Left of the Middle album and it was released in 1998. The song contains a ‘sexy’ sound as the title suggests and it was received as a ‘smooth’ track. The music video is full of smoke which probably has something to do with the title. It is not as successful as Torn, but it is still charted in many countries around the world.
Shiver was released in 2003 as the third single from White Lilies Island. It’s a typical love ballad with an amazing melody. The song was used in many TV spots and it topped the charts in some countries. Although it didn’t do as well as Natalie’s previous singles, it is still one of the best songs that she ever released. After it was released, she toured for a year to promote it. It gain critical acclaim and she received an ARIA Award. This made her be able to tour around the world.
5. Build it Better
Build it Better was the only single from the album Counting Down the Days. The song was released in 2006 and it reached number 7 on the UK Singles Charts and number 33 in Australia. It was one of the three songs that charted in the top 20, making Natalie Imbruglia more popular than ever. The “Build It Better” also managed to stay at number one on the Australian club chart for several weeks. This is a beautiful song and it deserves to be recognized as one of Imbruglia’s best songs.
4. Big Mistake
This song is from the album White Lilies Island. The track was released in November 2003 and it reached number 7 on the UK Singles Charts and number 18 in Australia. It was used in many TV ads and it is still one of the best songs that Imbruglia ever recorded. The ‘Big Mistake’ has made her fans wait for six years before the studio album Counting Down the Days was released. She has won many awards for her work, but this song is not one of them though it is very popular.
3. Don’t Dream it’s Over
Imbruglia covered this famous song by the band Crowded House in 2007. It became her first UK number 1 single and it has topped the charts in many other countries. The song was used for various TV spots, promoting various products. This song becomes very popular among viewers because of the amazing lyrics and nice melody. It made her top the charts, but it didn’t make her win any awards.
2 . That Day
This is probably one of the most emotional songs by Imbruglia. It was released in 2000 as the third single from her debut album Left of the Middle. This song reached number 12 on the UK Singles Charts and number 37 in Australia. The song is full of emotions which are perfectly combined with the beautiful melody. The music video is also pretty emotional and it won the Best Pop Video award in 2000.
1. Wishing I was there
This song is the title track from Imbruglia’s debut album. It was released in 1997 and reached number 1 in Australia. The song has topped the charts in many other countries as well. It’s probably one of the best-known songs by Imbruglia and it won the Highest Selling Single award in 2000. The song also appears in numerous soundtracks and TV spots. ‘Wishing I was there’ depicted a moment when a girl recall the perfect love story she shared with a special person. It is truly one of the best songs that Imbruglia has recorded.
This is the best that Natalie Imbruglia has ever done. She’s one of the few singers that can combine emotional lyrics with amazing music. She’s not profit-oriented and she tries to keep her work at the same level. ‘Wishing I was There’ is probably one of the most emotional songs of the 90s and it can win any emotional song contest. The original version has a great melody, but Imbruglia’s cover is even more emotional. That has made her fans fall in love with this song instantly. It is the best Natalie Imbruglia song yet, no doubt about it.
