tribute to the best song in the world

I'm in an Mp3s gathering mood and I want to know a few of your favorite songs I probably have never heard.

I offer these two amazing tracks for you to marinate in:

Gary Jules - Mad World
Godspeed You Black Emperor! - Moya (edit: DEATH to the heretic who just said, "they're dull travis, beyond belief")

Now, give me some fucking input.

tortoise - TNT (I think that's the title of the track. Either that or it's on the album TNT...)
Bjork - all is full of love (funkstorung remix). But it has to be the right one, which is kind of hard to find. It's easy to find the shitty one (they did two), but if you can find the way good one from the "all is full of love" remix album you're all set.

those are both very good songs. i prefer (instrumental groups? i guess they're comparable) explosions in the sky to either GYBE! or tortoise, myself. wait, i'll find a song...
hard to pick one.
try "have you passed through this night?". fuck. while listening through to find the best song for recommendation, i have rerealized that there is none. great album. great.
also, it's so hard to tell what people have heard.
and
modest mouse - bankrupt on selling
because i'm on a kick and it's nice.

I'm just gonna say, if there's a better song extant than "Heroin" by the Velvet Underground, I don't want to know about it.

What Goes On, Sister Ray, etc... Heroin's good, though...


Storm by GYBE! is much better than Moya....
Shine a Light - Spiritualized.

EVERYTHING from The Dismemberment Plan and Built to Spill. oh sweet jebus, built to spill.

Song of a Baker, one of the B-sides to the Screaming Trees's Nearly Lost You single.

an odd song for them, a song about making bread and being in love, with some messed up cheesy lyrics:

quote:
I'm depending on my labor
For the texture and the flavor


I never had the single (back in the day, yo), when i found this had a couple songs i had never heard before, i had to get it.

you know, i've heard of them, but never heard them. I'm going to go see the lead singer's show on wednesday night. I'm only going because Mike Johnson is the opener, and i dig his work.

Always preferred "Venus in Furs" to "Heroin".

That one that goes "Johnny be good, do what you should and everything will be alright" is also pretty good.

But "I'm waiting for my man" has got to be the best that the Velvet Underground ever produced.

Billy Bragg - Valentine's Day is Over

yes Punk Rock Girl is the great song... i like the Diesel Boy cover of it.

er... but the best song ever recorded in the history of the universe is easily:

Nofx - The Decline

Your life is not complete until you have heard this song.

Try and track down "Horrorshow" by the Scars.


Posted by Mugtoe on 12-20-2004 01:39 PM:

I think the "diary of an unborn baby" song is genius



but I'd go with just about any of the VU tunes posted here. I saw John Cale do "Venus in Furs" about a month or two ago over at 1st Ave. That was a concert high-point for me this year.

but really. "London Homesick Blues" by Gary P. Nunn is the best song ever recorded.

that, and "I've Been the One" by Little Feat, or "Strawberry Flats".
