Artist Spotlight: Jamiroquai


Jamiroquai are an English acid jazz/funk/R&B band from London, UK. Among the most popular, if not the most popular band to arise from the 1990s acid jazz scene, they have racked up several hits in their native Europe. They also scored a couple of hits in the U.S. with "Virtual Insanity" (1996) and "Canned Heat" (1999). In this article i'm going to list my Top 10 all-time favorites by the band. What I love most about this band is how eclectic the music is; it is influenced by many.

   1. "Virtual Insanity"
   2. "When You Gonna Learn"
   3. "Everyday"
   4. "Space Cowboy"
   5. "Cosmic Girl" 
   6. "Alright"
   7. "Blow Your Mind"
   8. "High Times"
   9. "Too Young to Die"
 10. "Canned Heat"

  4. A fan of some of their songs. They have a really groovy upbeat thing going for them, don't know how else to describe it.
