8 Awesome Paramore Songs You've Probably Forgotten About

Not a show goes by without Paramore airing Misery Business, and good luck turning on a music channel without seeing the Still Into You video. But what about the tracks that are more neglected than a malnourished puppy? Here’s 8 hits-that-didn’t-quite-make-it-as-hits to dig out of your iPod…

8. Stop This Song (Lovesick Melody)

8. Stop This Song (Lovesick Melody)

This track snuck in on the U.S. single release of Misery Business, Hayley and co’s breakout single. We have no idea why Stop This Song… didn’t make the cut on Riot!, because it’s catchy, ingenious, and one melody worth being lovesick for.

7. Hello Cold World

7. Hello Cold World

In 2011 Paramore released a digital download box set titled Singles Club. Everyone went mental for monstrous lead track Monster, but this was our favourite. It’s the audio version of PMA (positive mental attitude, y’all!). So if the world’s being a bitch today, go dust this off.

6. Escape Route

6. Escape Route

When the pop-rockers streamed their self-titled album on social jukebox site Rdio, they added this shoulder-shimmying bonus track. We get why it didn’t make the trio’s fourth album, but it would have fit in perfectly on Riot!. Check it out if you love old school Parrrrrramorrrrre!

5. Hallelujah

5. Hallelujah

Paramore barely ever play this song live (stands at a total of 18 airings), but it’s a huge TV hit in the UK. It appeared on an episode of Hollyoaks, and also twice (as a string quartet version) on So You Think You Can Dance. Excuse us while we go do our ‘dying swan’ dance…

4. We Are Broken

4. We Are Broken

Another one that barely ever gets broken out at shows, the 9th track from 2007’s Riot!. Hayley’s only put her pipes to this one eight times. We don’t know why, because if this was our song we’d be singing it in the shower, on the bus and in the queue for the self-checkout at Tesco.

3. Brighter

3. Brighter

It’s easy to forget about the tracks from Paramore’s debut All We Know Is Falling, since it came out 10 years ago (excuse us while we feel old for a second). But this one’s a great memory from a time when Hayley’s hair was a normal colour.

2. Fences

2. Fences

Another song that may have slipped under your listening radar lately is Fences, the 10th track from Riot!. It’s got everything you could want or need in a Paramore song – catchy beats? Check! A delicious melody? Check! Hayley telling someone they’re a dick? CHEEEEEEECK!

1. Native Tongue

1. Native Tongue

The second of the two bonus track’s that came only with the Japanese version of the self-titled. This one is new Paramore at their (B-side) finest, and a YouTuber on a video for it summed it up well saying: “I feel sorry for the people who don’t know this song exist”. WHAT HE SAID!
