|Best Foxy Shazam Songs|
Since Welcome to the Church of Rock and Roll hits shelves on January
28, here's a list of my favorite Foxy Shazam songs.
Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow
This is a B-side from their self-titled album, released through Spin Magazine. It's
a rollicking track about the afterlife that serves as a great bridge between that
album and The Church of Rock and Roll.
|9||Across the Golden FIeld|
Easily their most hardcore song, "Across the Golden Field" is made by just how
over the top it is. It has xylophones, it has what sounds like frantic gobbling, and it
has Nally roaring "Run for your lives." I usually don't like stuff this dark, but
there's a great fun vibe here.
This song is made by the outro, a dark vocalized melody set to Sky White's piano.
Sure, the intro with the dogs might be a little self-indulgent, but from when Nally's
rattling scream brings the song into "Bombs Away," to the final tinkling piano
notes, its one of their most brilliant.
Very dark song musically, but wonderfully silly lyrics. "They took my arms and
they threw them over there; they took my legs and they threw them over there."
|5||The French Passion of the Animality Opera|
Easily the catchiest song off their uneven 2005 debut 'The Flamingo Trigger.'
Excellent piano work by Sky White.
|4||Welcome to the Church of Rock and Roll|
I got this song for pre-ordering their new album, and it's one of their best,
featuring some heavy guitars and some hilarious lyrics about the band (once
again) reinventing themselves. "Your music sucks including us," they say, but this
song doesn't suck at all. Only complaint? At 2:09, it's way too short.
|3||No! Don't Shoot|
This one's another multi-parter, and it's one of the most unpredictable songs I've
ever heard. From a Nixon-sampling breakdown to an nonsensical interlude about six
unforgettable words, this song takes the prize for pure insanity.
A piece of pop perfection. The chorus is catchy, there's a trumpet, and the song is
one of the happiest I've ever heard, despite the fact that the song is essentially
Eric telling his son Julian that life's going to suck. Keep on keepin' on.
A swinging, multi-part epic that provides the perfect synthesis of classical piano
and post-hardcore rock. The first song I heard by Foxy Shazam, and they still
haven't topped it.
|Glad you have 3 on here. That song is fucking phenomenal. Band rules.|
|more like all of them|
|foxy shazam is like a less-interesting version of electric six|
i like them enough, but its hard to listen to them without switching to zodiac, kill, fire, etc.
|3 is 1, but this is a really great list actually. And by great I mean, it's what I like.|
|Foxy rules. List is dope.|
|FIVE FOUR THREE TWO ONE BLAAAAAAAASSSTTTT OFFFFF|
|And all you hipsters say I'm gaaaay; I'm not gay at all.|
|It's awesome to see how many other people love Foxy. They're one of my favorite bands, and their new album looks like it'll be fantastic. |
|Foxy is really underrated on this website. but of the people who do take the time to check them out, most of them enjoy it.|
