1 In Dreams I Dance With You --Has anybody ever figured out who Orenda is? is it Orenda Fink?
2 If I Faltered Slightly Twice -- I just really love Kevin's sad songs; though i'm not sure if this is all that sad.
3 You Feel You Must Go, Don't Go! --Reminds me when me and my gf used to be long-distance and i didn't want her to go.
4 My Friend Will Be Me --Super depressing. Lodges itself into my brain at work, sometimes.
5 A Man's Life Flashing Before His Eyes While He And His Wife Drive Off A Cliff Into The Ocean
6 Buried With Me --Starts off like it could be a power-pop anthem and becomes a fucking weird mantra of "buried with me"s.
7 It's Just So --So beautiful i imagine i could weep to this if i actually had emotions.
8 A Dreamy Day of Dreaming of You -- See #7
9 Jennifer Louise --THE power-pop anthem. right up there with No Matter What (Badfinger) or Couldn't I just Tell You (Todd Rundgren).
10 Christmas Isn't Safe For Animals --I have an unnatural distrust of advertising but I love knowing that i could put a washer/dryer for only $225 each on my Sears card.
11 Lysergic Bliss
12 Climb The Lader
13 I Was a Landscape In Your Dream

the first 5 or so are in order but the rest are just sort of in random order but these are my top 20 songs. i'm sure there are others that could replace some of these but i just love so many songs. for some reason doing new songs is actually harder.
1. the past.
3. plastis wafer
4. so begins our alabee
5. the party's crashing us
6. l'age d'or
7. oslo in the summertime
9. my british tour diary

15. she's a regector
16. rapture rapes the muses
17. famine affair
18. we were born with the mutants again with leafling
19. gronlandic edit
20. for our riotous defects
and this one was extremely difficult because i tend to listen to the whole abum rather then listening to individual songs especially with skeletal lamping. i'l probably end up changing it many times before i find my true top 20. i don't know why i'm getting to involved with making this list. i just love almost every song.
Esp. since the studio version sounds so empty compared to the super punchy version they played in Europe in 2007.
I don't think that I can do this because I'd end up with 100 songs, but I'm pretty sure that My Favorite Boxer would be in the top 20. I guess that I'm alone.
I was like, "oh"
