"16 Biggest Hits"
Joe Diffie -- an excellent country performer, his music was first introduced
in 1990, and since then, he has received 5 #1 Country songs. His 16-track
compilation, 16 Biggest Hits recaptures his #1's and much more extras.
His first #1, "Home" is a great song, and easily compares to one of
Alan Jackson's tender country songs. Likewise, "If You Want Me" is
another tender country ballad, and the honky tonk country sound is great on
Diffie's 2nd #1 hit, "If The Devil Danced (In Empty Pockets)" (1991).
Good 'ol country best defines "New Way (To Light Up An Old Flame)",
as it once again is compared to the honky tonk of Alan Jackson.
"Is It Cold In Here" brings back the great country of the 1970s,
especially the ballads of Merle Haggard; great classic country.
"Ships That Don't Come In" is another great ballad, "Honky Tonk
Attitude" has the Garth Brooks honky tonk country sound. "Prop Me Up
Beside The Jukebox (If I Die)" is another great Alan Jackson-sounding
country tune, "John Deere Green" is a catchy tune, just as another
future hit of his, "Bigger Than The Beatles."
Diffie's 3rd #1 hit, was the rockin' "Third Rock From The Sun," (1994)
a great country rock song, having great comparisons to Brooks & Dunn and Aaron
Tippin. His 4th #1, the honky-tonkin' "Pickup Man" (1994) has cute lyrics
regarding pickup trucks and pickup lines. "So Help Me Girl" has the
great country ballad sound, and his 5th #1 is my personal favorite Joe Diffie
song, "Bigger Than The Beatles" (1996), originally from his album
"Life's So Funny." The lyrics are great, referencing the fab four, the
Rolling Stones, and the Eagles.
"Texas Size Heartache" has the updated '90s country sound, as heard
on many Brooks & Dunn and Alan Jackson songs. "A Night To Remember"
sure sounds like a country ballad title, and a ballad that it is, it's another
great song to listen to. The last song is a typical upbeat country number, "It's
If you're a big fan of Alan Jackson and today's country in general, Joe
Diffie's 16 Biggest Hits is a very enjoyable compilation of Diffie's
biggest hits of his career. There are many 16 Biggest Hits collections
from many country artists, and each one of them introduces their music to those
who may not be familar with them, likewise for the true fan of their music,
their biggest hits are collected and enjoyed once again.
