10) Joker - Steve Miller Band
Just a classic song.
9) Log - Ren & Stimpy
8) Bob Dylan - Times are a Changin'
I don't like every Dylan song, but it's like he was an oracle or something in this one.
7) NIN - Everyday is Exactly the Same
6) Jars of Clay - Frail
I used this song to fall asleep to for almost an entire year.
5) Beck - Loser
Soy un perdador. I'm a loser, baby. You can say all you want about Nirvana starting 90's alternative, but this song was like the centerpiece.
4) Arrested Development - Tennesse
Best rap song lyrics ever.
3) Blackbird - Paul McCartney
Amazing song, with amazing guitar technique, kind of hybrid of strumming and picking. Not sure any Beatle ever wrote a better song.
2) Bad, Bad, Leroy Brown - Jim Croce
While it's a little hokie, it was a song my mom told me my dad (named Leroy) liked so it has a lot of memory. Jim was a pretty good song writer if you have a chance youtube him.
1) Evaporated - Ben Fold Five
This song never even made it off of the album in terms of being a hit, but I remember listening to this song 20 times in a row several times in high school. The last stanza is the best.
What I've kept with me
And what I've thrown away
And where the hell I've ended up
On this glary random day
Were the things I really cared about
Just left along the way
For being too pent up and proud
Woke up way too late
Feeling hung over and old
And the sun was shining bright
And I walked barefoot down the road
Started thing about my old man
It seems that all men
Wanna get into a car and go
Here I stand--sad & free
I can't cry and I can't see
What I've done
God...What have I done
So don't you know I'm numb, man
No I don't feel a thing at all
Cause its all smiles & business these days and I am indifferent to the loss
I've faith that there's a soul
whose leading me around
I wonder if she knows
Which way is down...
I poured my heart out
I poured my heart out
Blind man on a canyon's edgeCan't wait to see what you peeps have on your lists. Have a great week.
of a Panoramic scene
Or maybe I'm a kite
That's flying high & random
Dangling a string
Or slumped over in a vacant room
Head on a stranger's knee
I'm sure back home
They think I've lost my mind.
