my favorite songs

last night caught me in a contradiction: i told a friend that "baker street" might be my all-time favorite song (heard a snippet of it when we recently watched a guide to recognizing your saints, although the best use in a movie has to be the slo-mo brawl in good will hunting), although i recently posted that "creep" held the #1 spot. the problem is i just can't quantify songs i like in a way that assists in making a true "top 10" list. it depends on the day, the season, whether i read the bible that morning, what i ate, how many beers i've had, who i just listened to, whether i'm trying to impress someone, whatever. but, for the sake of the exercise, here's a top 10 for 4:21 p.m. on 3.20.3007:

  1. radiohead, "creep"
  2. al stewart, "baker street"
  3. player, "baby come back" (seriously)
  4. david wilcox, "how did you find me here"
  5. blue mountain, "jimmy carter"
  6. richard shindell, "the next best western"
  7. john williams, "the pulse of events" (meet the press theme song)
  8. beastie boys, "shake your rump"
  9. derek webb, "wedding dress"
  10. harvey danger, "cream and bastards rise" (you can download the whole album here)

honorable mention: al stewart, "year of the cat"

ok, during the time it took to type that list, it changed, so this isn't definitive.

    Would you believe me if I told you I just dug up a copy of Playa's Cheers to You? It was right between Pixies & Pogues; Don't Stop the Music was must-bumping in '98.

    I can't believe you left off this gem.
