Before I Go

T.R.U.T.H. (2018)

"Before I Go" is a song by Australian singer Guy Sebastian. It was written by Sebastian and Jamie Hartman and released on 2 November 2018 as the lead single from Sebastian's ninth studio album T.R.U.T.H.

The song was the most added song on Australian radio in the week of release. In a statement, Sebastian said: "This was the very first song I wrote when I sat down to start this new album and it says so much about what I was feeling at the time. In fact, the vocal is still the demo vocal from the writing session because it just felt honest."

Art Of Love

Like It Like That (2009)

"Art of Love" was the second single from Australian pop singer Guy Sebastian's fifth album, Like It Like That. The single features the vocals of American R&B/pop singer, Jordin Sparks. Sebastian said it was a song that wasn't actually written for the album. "I was writing it as a pitch. I was just going to pitch it to another artist who was more maybe R&B. But after writing it I thought 'I don't care if stylistally it doesn't really fit'".

"Art of Love" peaked at number eight on the ARIA Singles Chart, becoming Sebastian's sixth of 12 top ten singles in Australia.

Choir

T.R.U.T.H. (2019)

"Choir" is a song by Australian singer Guy Sebastian. It was released on 31 May 2019 as the second single from Sebastian's ninth studio album T.R.U.T.H.

At the ARIA Music Awards of 2019, the song was nominated for four awards; Best Male Artist, Best Pop Release, Video of the Year and Song of the Year, and won the latter two.

The song is dedicated to his great friend and musical collaborator Luke Liang, who died following a battle with mental health. Sebastian said "His death was very unexpected. In fact, I'd actually done a gig with Luke, who passed away, just before I left for LA. And I could sense that something wasn't quite right... It was very hard to process and it still is."

Like It Like That

Like It Like That (2009)

"Like It Like That" is the title track and first single from his fifth album Like It Like That. He said, "The more we play "Like It Like That" when I play it live a lot of people are drawn to it. It's simple really. The chorus says 'Hey oh, do you like it like that, I'm the only one who can love you like that' and it repeats. It's so easy, it's just a fun song". "Like It Like That" debuted at number six on the ARIA singles chart, and reached number one in its fourth week of release, a position it held for two weeks. The song spent twenty five weeks in the top 50 of the ARIA Singles chart, including twelve weeks in the top ten.

3.

Who's That Girl

Twenty Ten (2010)

"The funny thing about that single is that I did all the vocals in my dining room in Australia and we sent it across to Andre Harris who did his thing on the track by adding his magic production touch." He also spoke about writing the song, "It's actually a completely original song that I kept going back to rewrite over and over again because, at first, the musician in me thought it was too simple in its structure... but then I realized that sometimes simplicity is the best way forward to keep things fun and hook-y." "Who's That Girl" debuted on the ARIA Singles Chart at number 11, and reached number one in its fifth week


2.

Don't Worry, Be Happy

Armageddon (2011)

"Don't Worry Be Happy" is an up tempo pop song Sebastian said he was inspired to write after experiencing the anger of a fellow motorist while driving in Los Angeles. "I thought I knew the guy so as he pulled alongside me, I smiled and copped a tirade of abuse. I was in a really good mood because I was on the way to play cricket and while we were batting, I wrote the song. It's a good time for a song like this to remind yourself things aren't that bad". "Don't Worry Be Happy" debuted at number seven on the ARIA Singles Chart, and rose to its peak of number five after six weeks. It was Sebastian's eighth of 11 top ten singles in Australia.


1.

Battle Scars

Armageddon (2012)

"Battle Scars" is a song about the scars left from hurtful and broken relationships. In a radio interview Sebastian said, "It's about your own personal battle scars and for every individual those are different; some might be words or labels... it might be relationship scars. When I wrote this song, and when Lupe wrote his bits, we just really wanted it to be something that just inspired people to, sort of, confront those things, and also maybe try and work to think about burying and ripping up those labels; throwing them away." "Battle Scars" debuted at number one on the ARIA Singles Chart, becoming Sebastian's tenth of 12 top ten singles in Australia and sixth to reach number one.
