I'm sure the moment I post this I'll be thinking of dozens of other songs that should have been on here.
Stella Was A Diver and She Was Always Down - Interpol The Man Who Sold the World - Nirvana Roses - Kanye West For Emma - Bon Iver Soul Love - David Bowie All My Friends - LCD Soundsystem Shine on You Crazy Diamond - Pink Floyd True Faith - New Order Do the Astral Plane - Flying Lotus Street Spirit - Radiohead
HM: My Sweet Lord - George Harrison Suburban War - Arcade fire Gate Keeper - Feist This Charming Man - The Smiths A Forest - The Cure Si No Te Tengo a Ti - Hombres G Modest Mouse - Black Cadillacs Dondante - My Morning Jacket Reckoner - Radiohead
Arcade Fire - Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains) The Beatles - A Day in the Life LCD Soundsystem - Home LCD Soundsystem - All My Friends Pink Floyd - Time Coldplay - In My Place The Who - Baba O'Riley Daft Punk - One More Time Kanye West - POWER MGMT - Time to Pretend
Okay, so this was painful. I guess it comes down to these:
Procol Harum - A Whiter Shade of Pale The Proclaimers - I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles) Wilco - Open Mind Great Lake Swimmers - Your Rocky Spine The Beatles - Let it Be MMJ - Wonderful (The Way I Feel) Talking Heads - Life During Wartime Delta Spirit - California Trampled by Turtles - High Water Regina Spektor - How
and because it's impossible for me to leave it at that, here are ten additional "honorable mentions":
Alan Parsons Project - Eye in the Sky A Night in the Box - Lie to Me The Beatles - All my Loving Flogging Molly - The Son Never Shines (On Closed Doors) Modest Mouse - Little Motel Modest Mouse - The Cold Part Mumford & Sons - Feel the Tide Mumford & Sons - After the Storm Radiohead - Talk Show Host Ricky Votolato - White Daisy Passing
My list changes constantly - tomorrow this list might be full of MJ and Bowie and Biggie and Dylan - but if you told me I was heading off to colonise far away galaxies in an hour, and could only bring 15 (deal with it!) songs, I could do a lot worse than these:
(alphabetical by artist)
Happiness Is A Warm Gun - The Beatles Rock the Casbah - The Clash Fitzcarraldo - The Frames Lust for Life - Iggy Pop Epitaph - King Crimson Chelsea Hotel No. 2 - Leonard Cohen Dondante - My Morning Jacket Feeling Good - Nina Simone Privilege (Set Me Free) - Patti Smith Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd Exit Music (For a Film) - Radiohead Gimme Shelter - The Rolling Stones Marquee Moon - Television Burma Shave - Tom Waits At Least That's What You Said - Wilco
This is too difficult. But I grabbed my ipod to see what my most listened to songs were. So right now, at this moment, in no particular order, here are my top 10 songs. It will without a doubt change as soon as press create post.
Radiohead - Reckoner Arcade Fire - Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels) Pearl Jam - Elderly Woman Behind the Counter in a Small Town Bon Iver - Skinny Love Elliott Smith - Waltz #2 Ryan Adams - La Cienega Just Smiled Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here Beck - Devil's Haircut Billy Bragg & Wilco - California Stars The Beatles - All You Need Is Love
Geez, way to make the rest of feel like jerks. "After I donate my kidney to a friend in need, I'll still make the effort to go Bonnaroo and see all my friends even though I'm not crazy about the lineup this year."
Bonnaroo 11-16 ~ Coachella 15, 17 ~ Newport Folk Festival 14-16 ~ Shaky Knees 14-16 ~ DesertTrip 16 ~ Moogfest/MOEMS 13-14 ~ Music Midtown 12-13 ~ CounterPoint 14 ~

Spiritualized - Shine A Light (especially live versions) The Beta Band - Dry The Rain Radiohead - There, There Radiohead - How to Disappear Completely Pink Floyd - Shine On You Crazy Diamond Pink Floyd - Fearless LCD Soundsystem - All My Friends Talking Heads - Burning Down The House The Beatles - Dear Prudence Pixies - Hey

LCD Soundsystem - Someone Great Daft Punk - Face To Face The Smiths - How Soon Is Now? Talking Heads - Burning Down The House Deerhunter - Little Kids Beck - Beercan Kate Bush - Suspended In Gaffa Cibo Matto - Sugar Water Hot Chip - Take It In The Clash - Train In Vain
