Top 5 Track One, Side Ones

So after re-watching high fidelity the other day I thought this might be a fun thing to do, turns out it was harder than i thought
1The Streets
Original Pirate Material

"Turn The Page" - One of my favorite tracks ever dating back to when i was
about 13. Those strings man, those strings, plus some lovely lyrical imagery
- "give me a jungle, a garage beat and admit defeat"...
2 Public Enemy
It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back

"Countdown To Armageddon/Bring The Noise" - The opening salvo of the
greatest rap album of all time and the 4 and a half minutes that
singlehandedly got me into hip-hop. The beats on this thing still haven't
been bettered to my ears.
3Charles Mingus
Mingus Ah Um

"Better Git It In Your Soul" - this is probably a tie with "So What", but
Mingus played bass and had a cooler goatee than miles, so yeah
4Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds
No More Shall We Part

"As I Sat Sadly By Her Side" - From the gently shuffling guitar to the
exquisite piano figures, this song is pure good taste and understated class
from beginning to end, and the evocative lyrics only add to it's towering
5Black Sabbath

"War Pigs" -This is just...fucking....monothilic. Incredible, and its simplicity
only adds to the grinding assault. There's more good riffs here than most
bands managed in their entire careers, including my favorite of all time ever
just after the 6 and a half minute mark. Unimpeachable.
