The 50 Best Side One Track Ones in Music History

Kanye West — “Good Morning” (Graduation, 2007)

“Good Morning” is, along with “Hey Mama,” Kanye at his most unabashedly sentimental — and while the latter is a moving tribute to his mother that’s tinged with sadness given her death less than two years later, the atmosphere here is sunny and largely optimistic. (It’s also West at his most ridiculous: “I’m like the fly Malcolm X,” indeed.)
