Eyes Without A Face

If it's all right, I have a few favorites.

I love Joy Division. They're the be-all and end-all of post-punk music next to Public Image Ltd. I love all their songs, but "Love Will Tear Us Apart" is a classic that even non-JD fans admit is a track with more than a decent hook.

I'm not a big Billy Idol fan (I only like a few of his songs) but "Eyes Without A Face" is an intensely personal and dreamy track that really threw me for a loop when I first listened to Rebel Yell in its entirety. It's one of the few ballads on that album and the best one at that.

The Strokes, to me, are the most pleasant band from the early 2000's garage rock revival. Is This It is intensely catching and lyrically interesting. I haven't heard rock so catchy since the early '60s. "Hard to Explain" is my favorite track from that album, but really, any track can fill that spot on any given day.

There are plenty more, and I may discuss more of my favorites later, but these few are a good start.

I have a very, very difficult time picking one song as my "favorite". Whenever I pick one I find I change my mind, and that can depend on my mood, where I am, who I'm with, or for no real reason.

If you put a gun to my head and forced me to pick, I guess I'd say this one:


This is because the composition, arrangement, performance, etc are IMO near perfect in terms of technical proficiency and artistry, and also it's meaningful to me because of where I was in my life when I first heard it, and I've listened to it a lot since then. Maybe this is a bit power-levelly, but the feelings I associate with it aren't happy feelings, but I love this song regardless.

I can't help but play air guitar to Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love by Van Halen, so I guess that's my favourite song.

Two chords, a few lines of lyrics, a mostly unchanging drum beat, and it manages to keep you absolutely transfixed for all 19 minutes.

"((((((()))))))" -- J.D. Salinger

I've thought about this long and hard, and instead of giving a list (which I've partially written), I give one:
Talking Heads - "Once in a Lifetime"

I heard it first when I was 12 years old on an airplane, and like most songs I've heard on airplanes I've learned to love it. When I was 15 my friend had the greatest hits of the Talking Heads on his iPod, and I used to constantly steal his iPod just to listen to it. Thus began my headphone induced consumption of music.
