A Louisiana Democrat who's more convincing quiet-storm smooth than redneck-rock rowdy, Faith Hill's hubby has topped country's singles chart 22 times since 1994. This double disc compiles all of those tracks, which makes it a respectable career overview — the lost-cause divorce lament "Angry All the Time" and Latin-lilting midlife progress report "My Next Thirty Years," especially, are worth obtaining wherever you can. Problem is, McGraw's best singles frequently aren't his biggest. In fact, the two album-concluding "bonus" novelties here (a dance mix of "Indian Outlaw" and "Felt Good on My Lips") trounce most of the legit Number Ones.

    “Wake Up Everybody”

    John Legend and the Roots | 2010

    A Number One record by Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes in 1976 (a McFadden- and Whitehead-penned classic sung by Teddy Pendergrass) inspired the title and lead single from Wake Up!, John Legend's tribute album to message music. The more familiar strains of "Wake Up Everybody" also fit his agenda. "It basically sums up, in a very concise way, all the things we were thinking about when we were putting this record together in that it's about justice, doing the right thing and coming together to make the world a better place," he said. Vocalists Common and Melanie Fiona assist Legend on this mission to connect.
