I was just passin' through. Here's a list of my all-time favourite songs.
|1||At The Drive-In|
|2||Bandits Of The Acoustic Revolution|
It's A Wonderful Life
Thomas Kalnoky is a wonderful lyricist, and seamlessly weaves a tragic story through a beautiful string and horn section.
First Girl To Leave Town
Get up and dance.
|4||Bomb The Music Industry!|
FRREEE BIIIRRRDD!!! FREEE BIIIRRRDD!!!!
I'm a sucker for fun and catchy.
Beautiful. Warm. A masterpiece on acoustic.
As The Footsteps Die Out Forever
Loved this song for it's catchy horns right from the get-go, but when I read the lyrics, my heart broke.
Good things happen when you play this song. That is a proven fact.
|8||Godspeed You! Black Emperor|
My favourite Godspeed song, I can see the stages of a storm as I play this. The calm, the build up, the climax, the aftermath.
Don't really have a solid reason for why I love this song, I just do.
|10||The Mars Volta|
Favourite Mars Volta song.
This song would be nothing without that baseline.
|12||Neutral Milk Hotel|
In The Aeroplane Over The Sea in general blows me away with it's poetic nature, and simple yet beautiful songwriting. This song embodies all of that.
The Lucky Few
I love this song. Not my absolute favourite, but I love the name so much, I named my solo endeavor after it. Oh, and my username too.
Cast No Shadow
As he faced the sun, he cast no shaadooowww.
This song is an absolute masterpiece. A gorgeous acoustic beginning, an epic distorted ending. Every song should be like this.
|16||Protest The Hero|
The Divine Suicide Of K.
I feel like I have to be discreet about my love for Protest The Hero, for fear of being labeled a scenester. Fuck it, I love them.
Have I used the adjective beautiful already?
My favourite off of OK Computer, which is one of my favourite albums ever.
Alive With The Glory Of Love
If love had a soundtrack, it would sound like this.
First heard this song on their documentary Heima. It had me captivated from beginning to end. Studio version almost lives up to that performance.
And here we come to, quite possibly, the greatest song my ears have ever heard. This song is beautiful, haunting, and mesmerizing from start to end. Easily my favourite song of all time.
A Better Place, A Better Time
Great message, great lyrics, and catchy as hell. Thomas Kalnoky at his finest.
This is the best side of Thrice in my opinion. Yeah, the hardcore's cool. The experimental and acoustic is pretty good. The soaring chorus, and haunting keyboard are top-notch.
|Ok, what the fuck? Why did it post every item twice? Argghh...|
|Fix'd it as best I could.|
|really good for a new guy|
|Great shit. FINALLY SOMEONE WHO LOVES "RECKONER" LIKE I DO|
and I don't think Protest the Hero are scenesters at all. you had me at 21 btw
|Hello to you, you sexy son of a bitch.|
|yeah you have to be patient when you submit, what happened is more or less a double post|
great list man, diggin the kalnoky love.
|MAJOR MAJOR MAJOR props for 9 |
that was like my favorite song ever 4-5 years ago and my most played song on itunes at like 250, good times ive had with that song good times.
oh 1,10,15,16 rule also. I'd pick different Radiohead and Thrice songs but yea still good picks.
|Thanks, but I have to admit there was a little lurking on my part for a bit. I like reading music reviews, so I would google reviews for my favourite albums, and it would frequently lead me here. This is a great site, and I love the music taste this community has.|
|I just got done listening to 21. Fantastic song!|
|hai, you awesome muther fucker! excellent, excellent list.|
|You would love Dredg, I can guarantee.|
|Thanks Payne. Always appreciative of recs.|
|like half of these are amazing and the others are still really fucking good|
1 is in agreement without a doubt
and number 8 needs to be higher.
and number 12 needs to be higher
18 owns 17 by the way, and 19 should be at, like, number 6
I think you're probably one of the coolest people ever.
|Thank you very much Jokes, but this list is in alphabetical order. If it had an order, 21 would be 1, and 22 would probably be 2.|
|ahh you have such good taste!|
also u have so many albums rated for this being ur first day lol nice. welcome
|you, you're awesome :)|
|so uh, you'll fit in well here haha. gooood stuff man.|
|Your avatar is way too good to be used here...;-)|
Anyways, that Muse song is terribly under-appreciated, thanks for showing it love. Good to know that you listen to some good stuff.
And since you're of the "Brand New/Thrice" persuasion, you have to round out the trinity by listening to mewithoutYou.
|Balls basically said what I was going to say. I like you. You'll fit in pretty damn well here. Come back moar often.|
