well. the question sounds quite banal, but this article is a funny read
… while reading, I started to think about my personal top 5 songs, but hey, that’s a hard task…March 16, 2003 at 12:59 pm #92005
Charming article. I like the part about Jumping Jack Flash. Just a simple B-chord that rocked the nation. Yeah thats what rock and roll is about!March 16, 2003 at 3:07 pm #92006
Whoa, I built my own personal Top 5 list.
Ok, I didn’t look left or right to think about which songs are the most important in history, or which ones sold the most copies or whatever. This list is about which songs I love the most.
Of course there are hundreds more songs I love, but if I ask myself which 5 songs I’d take with me to a desert island, it would be these (in no particular order):
Do nothing – The Specials
a song that never fails to make me feel happy
Jangle Town – Nikki Sudden
It’s such a simple song, simple structure, simple chords, repetitive lyrics, but there’s something about it that catches me completely, anytime I listen to it.
I don’t Think – Dinosaur Jr
It’s just a perfect song. I could listen to it many hours in a row – call it my personal mantra… (and don’t mix it up with ‘I don’t think so’!)
You Were Right – Built To Spill
This one could easily win the prize as the saddest song ever, or the most uplifting? both, if you ask me.
Where Is My Mind? – The Pixies
Who would disagree about that this is the coolest song ever?!March 17, 2003 at 7:28 am #92007
I`ll try to do a top 5 though I`ll leave out a ton of good songs but here goes:
Dinosaur Jr-The Lung:J`s best guitar solo I think;it`s like a anthem.
Eleventh Dream Day-Makin Like A Rug or Dream Of A Sleeping Sheep:a tie! Makin has the best chorus in the world and the guitar solo rips;Sleeping Sheep is another personal anthem for me and my view of life and the world,the slide guitar solo would make George Thorogood retire it`s just so wild.
Husker Du-Indecision Time:when Bob screams-"You`re a big fucking kid you don`t know what you`re about!"it was like he was talking to me.
My Bloody Valentine-When You Sleep:another anthem!the little keyboard riff is so catchy!
Richard Thompson-Calvary Cross:incredible song,Richard said once it was how he felt that music was enslaving him and this song was like a release from it.
5 songs is`nt enough! so maybe I`ll talk about more another time.March 17, 2003 at 12:50 pm #92008
No Particular Order:
Dinosaur Jr.-Start Choppin’
My Bloody Valentine-When You SleepMarch 17, 2003 at 4:08 pm #92009
Its impossible to pick just five, how can I ever do it….
Dinosaur Jr-They Always Come
The Only Ones-Another Girl Another Planet
Sonics Rendezvous Band-City Slang
Ramones-I Wanna Be Sedated
I figured out how I could do it…my fav five songs of all time for today, tomorrows a whole new dealMarch 17, 2003 at 5:21 pm #92010
Today I feel like this, tomorrow neverknows!
1) Beach boys / God only knows (this is what songwriting is about)
2) The Band / Katie’s been gone (yesterday I had to cry about it song so…)
3) Eels / It’s a motherfucker (What can I say?)
4) The Beatles / Tomorrow never knows ( the version of the anthology)
5) Neil Young / Powderfinger (sentimental reasons, only the starting chord is enough..look out mama!!!)
Maybe we should make this tread on a weekly /monthly bases, best songs are developing all the time.
