I'm not a connoisseur of every shred of Patton, but if you've ronly rheard Epic or Midlife Crisis, you may find this list rinteresting. rThese are my hardest digs over the years.

When Good Dogs Do Bad Things
I first heard this song when I was in grade 11, walking to a friends house at

and the snow produced an iridescent hue not dissimilar to the orange on the
album sleeve. It became rapidly apparent that this was the best thing I had
This song has always been a haunting excursion into the bizzarre romantic

vocal delivery meets the ears like wine to the tongue, and the best ending to
song since MGB's Born To Kill.

Cuckoo For Caca
This was the first song I ever heard to feature screaming, and it hasn't been

throughout this track is, simply put, sublime.
This song has it all, whacked out view on a mundane subject, vocal acrobatics, and a polka/thrash part,
what more could you ask for?
