The 11 Best Songs By Jellyfish

This weeks sees the release of Roger Manning's second solo album since the epic break-up of Jellyfish some 15 years ago. Manning's last album was not what Jellyfish fans had been waiting decades for...some were just happy to hear him once they appreciated what they were given...but deep down in their souls...they knew it was just not the same. Though nothing will replace a Manning reunion with singer Andy Strummer...the new album comes close to what the reunion might sound like. Capturing the spirit of E.L.O., Manning rips through the album sounding more like "In Color" era Cheap Trick than the Beach Boys fueled tracks from his previous release.

Here are the 11 Best Songs By Jellyfish

1. Baby's Coming Back (Bellybutton)
2. Now She Knows She's Wrong (Bellybutton)
3. The Ghost of Number One (Spilt Milk)
4. The King Is Half-Undressed (Bellybutton)
5. Glutton of Sympathy (Spilt Milk)
6. The Man I Used To Be (Bellybutton)
7. That Is Why (Bellybutton)
8. Joining A Fanclub (Spilt Milk)
9. Calling Sarah (Bellybutton)
10. Too Much, Too Little, Too Late (Spilt Milk)
11. All I Want Is Everything (Bellybutton)

  1. Great list. My favorite is Calling Sarah. I'd also have squeezed All is Forgiven somewhere here on the list.
