Musical Ripoffs . . . All I Need

Okay, these aren't actually ripoffs, other than that all these songs have the same title. I got the first one stuck in my head, which aggravated me to no end because the only lyrics I can ever remember are, "All I Need is just a little more time to be sure what I feel." Drives me nuts. Anyway, I thought I'd pass the aggravation on to you by adding the song to my playlist. But in my search for the song, I found loads of other artists who have recorded tracks called "All I Need." And while I wouldn't go so far as to call them clones of each other, at least three of them seemed to have the same vibe as the song I was looking for. I guess it sounded to me like they all had an assignment in music class to write a song called "All I Need" that was melancholy while making a vain attempt to be upbeat. Go figure. So I thought I'd put it to a vote. Please check out a sampling of the four different songs, and tell me which one you like best.

To make it easy on some of you, I went ahead and included Radiohead. I'm not really familiar with Shawn McDonald or Mat Kearney, but I liked the songs. So give them an honest listen, a fair shake, and make your vote count . . . even though it doesn't, in the vast configuration.


  1. Thanks for making the vote easy.
    Addison smacking the baseball is awesome. He's so cute.

  2. This is not even close. Radiohead in a landslide. That song rivals Fake Plastic Trees and Let Down as my fave R-head tune of all time.

    I'm pretty sure Kearney is a Christian. He seems to do that Jars of Clay thing where he sings about God all the time, but God could also be a really hot girl, depending which radio station is playing it...

  3. Go figure, the 1980s won. Sorry, Radiohead fans . . . the public has spoken. All three of them.


It's okay. Let it out.
