Grammys 2013: Listen to the 10 best Frank Ocean songs

1) “Bad Religion”

It is not only Frank Ocean’s haunting songwriting about unrequited love and his description of forbidden connection sung like a sad, sad dirge that made this song a hit.”Bad Religion” received such positive standings because of its authenticity and daring pessimism. Ocean almost chants the last line of the song (“I could never make him love me”) with obvious pent up passion and aggression.  Easily the most moving moment on “Channel Orange.”
