Boney's Favorite Songs of 2018

A (relatively) brief taste of my 2018 favorites. Album list coming mid-January. Consider this a preview but not too spoilery - a lot of albums the songs here come from won't be listed on the album list and there will be some albums not represented here that will be there. Listed alphabetically, with lyrics selections (where applicable).
1Advance Base
Animal Companionship

"Dolores & Kimberly"

The streets were so empty
You’d think it was the rapture
Our midnight world
Just me and you
2Amen Dunes


You’ve got a beautiful guitar
And there's an ocean where you are
Wherever you run, there you are
3Anna von Hausswolff
Dead Magic

"The Mysterious Vanishing of Electra"

You look at their faces and their meaningless loss
And you cry
4Beach House

"Drunk In LA"

Can't help seeking corners
Of dark and dead end rooms
Where the drinks keep pouring down
And the candles keep me warm
5Big Red Machine
Big Red Machine


I am not an apparition
But I’ll haunt you
You'll see
6Bill Ryder-Jones


Will you still play on my mind
When I'm proud of myself?
Know I only meant well
7Brandi Carlile
By the Way, I Forgive You

"The Joke"

I have been to the movies, I've seen how it ends
And the joke's on them
The Thread that Keeps Us

"Music Box"

Here's a little gift from me to you
A place to store your dreams and your secrets too
Love Is Dead


Is it right if I'm a perfect actress
Playin' the princess in distress?
10Cloud Nothings
Last Building Burning

"So Right, So Clean"

So right, so clean
But does it mean anything?
You Won't Get What You Want

"The Reason They Hate Me"

You have a lot of fun playing grab-ass with the boys
Which one's going to give you a ride home?
Which one's going to walk you to the door?
Wonder which one's going to call?

"Crack the Case"

It's really hard to hate anyone
When you know what they've lived through
And once they've given you a taste
Ordinary Corrupt Human Love


Imagining us clasping hands in holiday
Imagining you growing older
Growing somehow more beautiful
14Death Cab for Cutie
Thank You For Today

"Summer Years"

And I wonder where you are tonight
If the one you're with was a compromise
As we're walking lines in parallel
That will never meet and it's just as well
15The Decemberists
I’ll Be Your Girl

"Rusalka, Rusalka / The Wild Rushes"

Come down, my little darling, come closer to me
The water is warm; it is salty and free
16Dogwood Tales
Too Hard to Tell

"Austin's Song"

It’s just one of those things
That leaves you wondering
That always brings the pain
The Deconstruction

"The Deconstruction"

The deconstruction has begun
Time for me to fall apart
18Field Report
Summertime Songs

"Every Time"

There is someone where I go now who reminds me of how you looked
That morning in sunlight when I saw how you looked under glass
How many first days do we have the nerve to wait for?

"Lincoln Creek"

I guess he found Jesus
You might not believe this
But sometimes I wish that I did
Sugar and Spice


Do you even think about me?
21Hop Along
Bark Your Head Off, Dog

"Look of Love"

I still dream of spiders crawling across my bed
22Jeff Tweedy

"I Know What It's Like"

I keep turning back one page
I can't find the plot
Something else is taking shape
23Kacey Musgraves
Golden Hour

"Love Is a Wild Thing"

Running like a river trying to find the ocean
Flowers in the concrete
24Kurt Vile
Bottle It In


I was on the beach, but I was thinking about the bay
Got to the bay, but by then I was far away
25Lucy Dacus

"Night Shift"

The first time I tasted somebody else’s spit, I had a coughing fit
26Matt Maltese
Bad Contestant

"As the World Caves In"

You put your final suit on
I paint my fingernails
Oh we're going out in style babe
27Melody's Echo Chamber
Bon Voyage

"Quand les larmes d'un ange font danser la neige"

Find someone nice
Find somewhere to hide
Someone to be held by
28Gavin Clark
Beautiful Skeletons

"Something To Be Won"

They lay there, sparkling in the sun
They rot there, never to become
Symbols, something to be won
Be the Cowboy


I'm just asking for a kiss
Give me one good movie kiss
And I'll be alright
30Neko Case

"Halls of Sarah"

You see our poets
Do an odious business
Loving womankind
As lions love Christians
31Paddy Hanna
Frankly, I Mutate

"All I Can Say Is I Love You"

Never really one for the dancing
But that’s just what I’m gonna do
32Parquet Courts
Wide Awake

"Freebird II"

Free, I feel free
Like you promised I’d be
C'est La Vie

"Christmas Down Under"

If you need to make a martyr
You got to take away the man
34Richmond Fontaine
Don’t Skip Out on Me

"Night Out With Diego"

~sad horns~
35Thom Yorke


This is a waltz thinking about our bodies
What they mean for our salvation
36Tropical Fuck Storm
A Laughing Death in Meatspace

"Chameleon Paint"

All this scot-free moralizing’s got
Me quite demoralized
37We Were Promised Jetpacks
The More I Sleep The Less I Dream

"The More I Sleep The Less I Dream"

I lost all hope
I left it with someone some time, somewhere ago
38Wye Oak
The Louder I Call, the Faster It Runs

"You of All People"

I get the feeling to look up
At something larger than myself
And reach for what is not allowed
No matter how I love the ground
39Yo La Tengo
There’s A Riot Going On

"For You Too"

I am just some guy with too much pride
40Yves Tumor
Safe in the Hands of Love

"Licking an Orchid"

There's a pain deep inside, but I’m trying not to lose my
Only baby girl to a toxic world
