Awesome / Moby

Awesome Moments:

  • The incredible comeback of Play, and how he went from being the laughing stock of his genre to the highest seller.
  • Holds a Guinness World Record for Fastest Recorded Song (as in, highest BPM) with "Thousand". Guess how fast it gets at its peak.
  • To this day, Moby occasionally performs in a shirt that says "Nobody Listens To Techno," after Eminem's diss on "Without Me". Speaking of which, the way Moby consistently kept a good sense of humor and dignity during their "beef" was kind of awesome in itself.

Awesome Music:

  • From the first album "Moby" is "Go".
    • There's also "Drop A Beat" and "Next Is The E".
  • If you enjoy ambient music a lot, his second album, aptly titled "Ambient", is just for you.
  • Other rave tracks by him can fall under here such as "Mobility", "Drug Fits The Face", "Thousand", "Move" and "Permanent Green".
  • From the third album "Everything Is Wrong" is "Hymn"
    • There's also "Feeling So Real", "Everytime You Touch Me", and "Into The Blue".
    • Special mention to "First Cool Hive" and "Bring Back My Happiness".
  • Say what you want about the fourth album "Animal Rights", but you have to agree his take on the James Bond theme was amazing.
    • There's also "That's When I Reach For My Revolver".
    • "Come On Baby" is also kinda nice.
  • Onward to the fifth album "Play". Just listen to "Machete". Nuff said.
    • "Rushing" and "Porcelain", too.
    • "Honey" is certainty both catchy and cool.
    • Then there's tracks like "Find My Baby", "Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad?", "Natural Blues", "Run On", and "If Things Were Perfect".
    • If you want some badass music from him, check out "Bodyrock". You're welcome.
    • Also "The Sky Is Broken" and "My Weakness".
    • And if you want some from "Play: B-Sides", we have "Flower", "Memory Gospel", "Sunday", and "Running".
  • "We Are All Made of Stars", off of the sixth album 18. Especially the chorus.
  • Opinions on the seventh album Hotel, Moby's flirtation with mainstream rock and pop, are divided, but if you get the double-disc version, disc two, titled Hotel: Ambient is devoted to a smooth collection of his dabblings in ambient techno. It's breathtaking.
    • If you want actual songs off of "Hotel", you have things like "Raining Again", "Dream About Me", and "Spiders".
  • Album eight, "Last Night", has "Disco Lies".
    • Same can be said or "Alice" and "I Love To Move In Here".
  • Album nine, "Wait For Me". First of all, "Shot In The Back Of The Head" and its David Lynch directed video.
    • "Mistake" is this in a gloomy way.
    • Little Idiot making a comeback, though as an alien.
  • "The Perfect Life", off of "Innocents".
