Let’s get rockin’…
#1. Never Close Our Eyes
One of his first victories, Never Close Our Eyes is the song we frequently sang in 2012.
Wait, I can feel the memories flooding my head. Now I feel old.
This song is from his album Trespassing, which charted at number 17 out of the Top 20 Hits in the United Kingdom. This was written and produced by Bruno Mars, Philip Lawrence, Ari Levine, Dr. Luke, and Cirkut.
Oooh, big names.
Dori Oskowitz was the director of the music video.
It’s about the futuristic prison where prisoners lose their individuality by taking pills. However, Lambert appeared to be immune from it and managed to escape with other prisoners with a neon-soaked dance routine.
#2. Better Than I Know Myself
Now on to a much earlier track, the song Better Than I Know Myself was released in 2011 – the lead single of his second album, Trespassing.
This synth-pop ballad is a very nostalgic song and hit Top 76 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2012. However, it failed to reach the United States’ Top 40.
The song Better Than I Know Myself was written and produced by Dr. Luke, Cirkut, and Ammo and co-written by Claude Kelly.
The music video for this song was directed by Ray Kay.
It talks about conflict and duality between the dark and light sides of Adam Lambert that are presented by two characters.
Now that sounds very fitting.
#3. Whataya Want From Me
Whataya Want From Me is from Lambert’s debut studio album, For Your Entertainment. This song peaked at number 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2009.
As a matter of fact…
This pop-rock song became his highest single since he sang Mad World.
Woah, that’s quite a fine piece of work!
Whataya Want From Me was written by Pink, Shellback, and Max Martin.
P!nk should’ve recorded this for her fifth studio album, Funhouse, but unfortunately, she didn’t make the cut.
A Grammy nomination was received by Lambert for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for his vocal performance in this song.
Diane Martel was the director of the music video.
The video features Lambert, who appears to be frustrated with his partner.
Lambert interpreted this as the product of the sudden shift of his career. He also said that it can be related to frustration between him and his fans.
#4. Ghost Town
The song Ghost Town is from Lambert’s third studio album in 2015, The Original High, released as a lead single.
The pop song garnered numerous appreciation receiving radio hits in the United States.
Hype Williams directed the music video. It features Lambert dancing on a white background along with flashing dancers who are also dancing to the rhythm.
As the title says, the music video also shows some photos of a ghost town.
#5. Another Lonely Night
The song Another Lonely Night is one from his third studio album, The Original High (2015).
Following Ghost Town, this was his second single from the album. This song peaked Top 5 in the Polish Airway Top 100 and 45 on the Dutch Top 40.
This was written by Lambert, Max Martin, Sterling Fox, Ali Payami. Payami and Martin were the ones too who produced this song.
The music video is all about the four characters’ everyday lives in Las Vegas, Nevada. These people played as tourists but had quite some lonely personal lives.
It was directed by Luke Gilford.
6. Time For Miracles
This was Lambert’s first-ever release since his journey in American Idol Season 8.
The song Time for Miracles became popular when it was used in the 2009 disaster film 2012, which was included in the film’s soundtrack.
It was first released on October 17, 2009, on YouTube and later became available for digital download on October 20, 2009.
The song Time for Miracles was written by Alain Jones and Natasha Shneider.
It also gained an appreciation from Brian May of the legendary band Queen, stating that it was “truly sensational.”
#7. If I Had You
If I Had You is another song from his album For Your Entertainment (2009). It was the third and an international single, reaching Top 10 and Top 30 in the United States.
This comes in the disco glam style and fashion, which can make you vibe like you’re right there in the very heart of the party.
This song was written by Max Martin, Shellback, and Savan Kotecha.
#8. Welcome To the Show
Welcome to the Show was independent of his album The Original High (2015) and was released by Warner Bros. Records in 2016.
The singer-songwriter Laleh is featured in this song.
The song Welcome to the Show talks about shining a light on one’s vulnerable sides. It promotes the idea of choosing and accepting who we are.
Generally, this song is a tribute to the members of the LGBT community who are deprived of acceptance of who they truly are.
#9. Whole Lotta Love
One of Adam Lambert’s remarkable performances in the American Idol Season 8 was when he performed Whole Lotta Love.
This was originally sung by the legendary band Led Zeppelin.
Along with the other contestants, Adam performed well in a black and white theme.
This is one of the songs that perfectly showcased Adam’s vocal abilities inspired by his influences such as David Bowie, Michael Jackson, and Aerosmith that helped him stand out in the competition.
#10. The Tracks of My Tears
The Tracks of My Tears was another song Adam Lambert performed on the American Idol stage. He sang it with his own style and version, which further endeared him to the audience.
This song was originally performed by the American R&B, The Miracles.
I can still remember the night when we watch his rendition. The goosebumps!
