As promised! Chatting away in the comments of the post about our “fanxieties” (or lack thereof), we found ourselves talking a bit about how much we wish some of our favorite unheard Jonas Brothers songs would see the light of day, but instead they seem to get left a bit in the dust, for whatever reasons.
So we thought now might be a good time to exercise our old listmaking muscles (remember these?) and dream up our ideal ‘Best of the Jonas Brothers’ album.
It may seem somewhat early in their career to do such a thing, but they have proven to be a fast-moving entity. It’s About Time, Jonas Brothers, A Little Bit Longer & Lines, Vines & Trying Times. Four solid albums in four years is more than many groups of a more seasoned vintage can boast, and leaves us with many songs to choose from!!
And with the pervasive feeling that the band is going through a shift – hopefully ultimately an evolution – with Nick working on side material, and Kevin discussing possibly radical, “scary” changes for a future album, maybe this is exactly the right moment to take this set of albums into consideration for a Best of, Volume 1, of sorts.
So, just for fun, what would you put on your Best of?
Organize it however you want, but try to span all of the Jonas Brothers albums you know, and hit YOUR key moments in 10-12 tracks. If you like, include your most-wanted, rare or never-released bonus material. Explain your objective (just showing your favorites, or picking the songs you think would convince even the haters) and your reasons for each track pick.
Sound good? OK. Have fun! I know we will, reading. (And making our own.)
