Best Boc Full Length Tracks

It was too hard to do a traditional list so I chose my 5 favorites from each album.
1Boards Of Canada
Music Has The Right To Children

Turquoise Hexagon Sun. While many BoC songs make me envision the '60s and '70s,
this one conjures up a futuristic metropolis with its psychedelic keyboard line.
2Boards Of Canada
Music Has The Right To Children

Roygbiv. It flows in from one of my favorite BoC interludes ("Bocuma") and the song
is just so damn infectious.
3Boards Of Canada
Music Has The Right To Children

Rue The Whirl. Open The Light almost had this beat, but the final two minutes seal
the deal. The distant sound of birds chirping in the background puts me in another
4Boards Of Canada
Music Has The Right To Children

Aquarius. No explanation needed. Also contains one of several references the band
makes to the "smallest weird number".
5Boards Of Canada
Music Has The Right To Children

Pete Standing Alone. My personal favorite BoC song.
6Boards Of Canada

Music Is Math. The cut up vocal samples and the way the song deteriorates into a
claustrophobic mess of wailing sound effects sets the tone for this paranoid
7Boards Of Canada

Sunshine Recorder. The duo's nihilism at its most prevalent. One finally reaches a
"beautiful place" to only have to say "bye" before they can even bat an eye.
8Boards Of Canada

1969. The "Aquarius" of Geogaddi, with some subliminal messages to boot.
9Boards Of Canada

The Beach At Redpoint. This song just flows through you.
10Boards Of Canada

Corsair. The second half of this album is dominated by shorter tracks, but this chilling
track that slowly evolves into a beautiful melody is the highlight of the album's final
11Boards Of Canada
The Campfire Headphase

Satellite Anthem Icarus. Damn.
12Boards Of Canada
The Campfire Headphase

Peacock Tail. With the exception of Satellite, the best use of guitars on the album.
13Boards Of Canada
The Campfire Headphase

Dayvan Cowboy. Once you hit the 2:07 mark in this song, your life will never be the
14Boards Of Canada
The Campfire Headphase

Hey Saturday Sun. I might get some flak for not including '84 Pontiac Dream, but it
barely lost out to this beautiful song.
15Boards Of Canada
The Campfire Headphase

Farewell Fire. See description for Satellite Anthem Icarus.
16Boards Of Canada
Tomorrow's Harvest

Reach For The Dead. As with Dayvan Cowboy, there's a moment near the halfway
point of this song that just sweeps me off my feet.
17Boards Of Canada
Tomorrow's Harvest

Jacquard Causeway. Punchiest drums BoC has ever put to record along with some
truly amazing atmosphere.
18Boards Of Canada
Tomorrow's Harvest

Split Your Infinities. The intro of this song is enough justification for the song's
inclusion on the list.
19Boards Of Canada
Tomorrow's Harvest

Nothing Is Real. One of the prettiest tracks the band has ever recorded, even with its
simplistic structure. Proof that above all the hidden messages and analog equipment,
the writing is this band's greatest weapon.
20Boards Of Canada
Tomorrow's Harvest

Come To Dust. Has a distinctive sound because of the live drums, but aside from that
this track is still masterfully constructed.
