  • And today we're counting down our picks for the top 10 Tame Impala songs straight.

  • Let's begin.

  • I'm still on track, you know, feeling.

  • This'll ist.

  • We're focusing on the best tame Impala tracks from official studio releases and extended plays.

  • What's your favorite team in Polytrack?

  • Let us know in the comments.

  • Number 10.

  • Half full Glass of Wine reported for Tame Impala's debut EP This track is suitable for any road trip.

  • Kicking off with a little high hat and complemented by a filthy riff, half full glass of wine boasts an undeniable retro vibe, and Kevin Parker's vocal delivery conveys a sly, lackadaisical feel.

  • Lyrically, it's a love story gone wrong on Lee.

  • The narrator doesn't seem all too concerned with true romance, as he's clearly got other things on his mind.

  • It's a killer track and one that HBO selected to close out a 2010 episode of Entourage.

  • Of course, the Zeppelin like drum solo doesn't hurt either.

  • Number nine Borderline when the song was released, is an album teaser in April 2019, it was one of the very first all original offerings from Kevin Parker since Currents premiered on Saturday Night Live.

  • The upbeat and dreamy sound of borderline is complemented by Parker's musings about a relationship on the brink of collapse and the borderline we all walk between misery and happiness.

  • It's another track that showcases tame Impala's ear for production, Shammari guitars, satisfying synth base and simple yet effective drums While fans air still digesting the slow rush, this track is certainly a standout.

  • Number eight Apocalypse Dreams.

  • Despite the titles dark, anticipatory nature, this tame Impala number lives in the moment with Apocalypse Dreams.

  • It's almost like Parker's caught up in his own head, worrying about what could be and stressed about what already is.

  • Theo Composition leans more toward Pink Floyd psychedelia than 21st century trends, which gives it such a hazy feel.

  • In other words, the narrator's shouldn't be fully trusted, as he's clearly under the influence of something, whether it be his loan arisen, um, or own self doubt, A Z.

  • One of the albums Early tracks Apocalypse Dreams demonstrates the band's astute production skills.

  • Number seven alter ego.

  • Lyrically, the message is quite simple.

  • With this tame Impala recording, just be yourself using about dreams and the truth, the narrator relays a common feeling.

  • Yet the jarring and off kilter instrumentation sells the complete detachment.

  • Incidentally, the turbulent sound also shows just how conflicted the narrator seems to be as his alter ego pulls him further away from reality that's producing the instability that persists throughout.

  • By no means a traditional rock single alter ego highlights the band's ability to communicate with sounds and textures.

  • Number six Breathe deeper, maybe the most memorable track from this 2020 release.

  • Breathe deeper waste No time in drawing in the Listener, with its intimate yet funky sound.

  • Emotional piano chords form the foundation here for Kevin to express his anxiety and uncertainty over difficult situations.

  • It's a fitting track for the overwhelming stress we all felt during 2020.

  • Instead of focusing on the future and what troubles we might face, breathe deeper encourages us to look inward, appreciate what we have and focus on the positives as few as there may be, I was feeling.

  • Sometimes we all need someone to carry us through, so it's good to know that Mr Parker has our back number five mind mischief.

  • On the surface, this track seems to be a story of unrequited Love Theo title also references how one can play tricks on themselves, placing heavy importance on details that perhaps mean nothing at all.

  • Theo meditative qualities of mind mischief contrast the steady group, complete with a dose of beetles like psychedelia as the follow up track toe Apocalypse Dreams.

  • The song builds upon the loner concept, with the narrator lost in his thoughts and second guessing himself time and time again.

  • Elin all It's an evocative production that succeeds through its lyrical subtleties and insinuations.

  • Number four Elefant With Given the metaphorical lyrics and bluesy rips, this track naturally became a favorite of movie and television executives, with Parker wailing on about big egos and fragile psyches, the thumping bass creates a distinct garage rock feel, a sound that's more evocative of early tame Impala.

  • Conceptually, elephants strays from the album's overall vibe, and according to reports, Tom and Paula simply enjoyed the sound and wanted to release cut.

  • As a result, Elefant gave them a mainstream hit.

  • Further cementing, the band is one of Australia's most successful groups of modern rock.

  • Way number three, The less I know the Better Way A Z, the album's third single, This Tame Impala production is often correlated with the massively popular and surrealistic music video on its own, though the disco inspired track touches on a post break up emotions and how you're typically better off walking away.

  • Just contrast ing the funky aesthetic.

  • The narrator wallows in his misery, slightly hopeful yet still highly skeptical about his ex's romantic wants and needs thier, as the central narrative fully stands out.

  • Certainly in the music video, Parker's phrasing lends a dreamy effect, accentuated by the tracks.

  • Repetitive Outro number two Let It Happen.

  • It's always for their third studio release.

  • Tame Impala further expanded their sound and international appeal with a highly relatable lead single.

  • It's wrong.

  • Try not only does let it happen promote inner peace, but the expansive sound design highlights Tame Impala is evolving musical freedom.

  • Lyrically, certain portions of Let It Happen become repetitive, but this only strengthens the core message, with Parker's soft vocals finding their way to the subconscious.

  • Although the track had modest mainstream success, the indie world welcomed it with open arms.

  • Before we unveil our number one pick, here are a few honorable mentions.

  • Beginning with a declarative chorus, this tame Impala classic exemplifies the core of their modern psychedelic vibe.

  • It's all about Loughner, is, um, it's all about the romantic rejection that can make one feel utterly helpless.

  • The chilled out production sets the shoe gazing tone, and Parker's high pitched and strained vocals embody the narrator's pure dejection.

  • Conceptually, it's a brilliant mid album track for the album Loner ism, and the lyrical simplicity exudes a timeless feel.

  • Certainly when paired with tame Impala's moody aesthetic me, it's an accessible track.

  • Yet there's also a touch of magical realism, as the narrator hopes to escape from some type of fantasy we owe.
