Would've liked to see "Even Cowgirls Get the Blues" and "Mulholland Drive".

Sick to see Patient Ferriswheel. That's the song that got me into them because I heard Dicky was on it.

I'd have a really hard time narrowing it down to ten, to be honest.

National Anthem, Blue Jeans & White T-Shirts, Mulholland Drive, Biloxi Parish, and Here's Looking at You, Kid, would make my list.

As an avid TGA fan, this is a disappointing list to me. I'm not a fan at all of "we did it when we were young" or "Old White Lincoln". I would've love to see any of the following songs on there:

We're getting a divorce...
Navesink Banks
1930
Senor and the Queen
Blue Jeans and White Tee Shirts
Miles Davis and the Cool
Here's Lookin at you, Kid
The Backseat
American Slang
Bring It On
The Spirit of Jazz
Mulholland Drive
Buloxi Parish
Blue Dahlia

Those are ALL better than WDIWWWY or Old White Lincoln

"Bring It On," "Blue Jeans and White T-Shirts," "Even Cowgirls Get the Blues," and "Wherefore Art Thou, Elvis?" would certainly be on my personal list, just off the top of my head.

1. Miles Davis and the Cool
2. Handwritten
3. The 59 Sound
4. Id'a Called You Woody, Joe
5. 1000 Years
6. Blue Jeans and White T-Shirts
7. 45
8. Diamond Church Street Choir
9. Mae
10. Boomboxes and Dictionaries

Picking a top 10 is incredibly hard because some of these songs will change positions depending on my mood. But that's still a list Im happy with.

I agree with 59 Sound... One of my favourites will always be Stay Lucky. Just love that song for some reason.

"Blue Jeans and White T Shirts" wasn't on the list so it's already completely wrong.


And not that it's a bad song, but they REALLY lost me when "Handwritten" was ranked at number 4. Jeez.

Get Hurt
Misery
The 59 Sound
Great Expectations

for me

Get Hurt is an unreal song.

I think it's hard to do a top 10 so closely after an album came out because people hesitate to put new songs on it. I can confidently say that will be in my top 10.

Then again, this band is like JEW for me. My top 10 could change depending on mood.

Impossible to do a definitive top ten. Too soon to consider Get Hurt songs (which would only make this list even harder to compile)

12: Biloxi Parish
11: Mulholland Drive
10: Bring It On
9: "45"
8: The '59 Sound
7: The Diamond Church Street Choir
6: The Backseat
5: Film Noir
4: Great Expectations
3: The Patient Ferris Wheel
2: Old White Lincoln
1: Miles Davis & The Cool
