Top 50 Guided by Voices songs
« on: June 05, 2014, 10:01:35 am »
Hi all, I'm Matt. I'm new here. I met Steve at Funspot 15 last year, reconnected with him at Funspot 16 this year, and he generously pointed me in the direction of this forum. I live in Chicago. I love music. Based on our mutual love of GbV, I figured this was the single best place on the internet to post this...

(DISCLAIMER - I have not really heard much from 2011-2014, so this only covers the 14 original run GbV albums, King Shit and the Golden Boys, the first Suitcase compilation, and all the EPs from the 1987-2004 era). Also #1-4 never change but the rest move around quite a bit.

1) Pendulum (Same Place the Fly Got Smashed)
2) Game of Pricks (Alien Lanes)
3) Smothered In Hugs (Bee Thousand)
4) Dusted (Fast Japanese Spin Cycle version)
5) Over the Neptune / Mesh Gear Fox (Propeller)

33) Fair Touching (Isolation Drills)
34) Jar of Cardinals (Vampire on Titus)
35) Motor Away (Alien Lanes)
36) Echoes Myron (Bee Thousand)
37) Skills Like This (Isolation Drills)
38) The Hard Way (Same Place the Fly Got Smashed)
39) The Brides Have Hit Glass (Isolation Drills)
40) As We Go Up We Go Down (Alien Lanes)

I'll just add a few of my favorites that I didn't see on either list:

1.  Long Distance Man
2.  Drag Days
3.  Finks
4.  Underwater Explosions
5.  Tropical Robots

I was pleased to see Chicken Blows on Fruity's list, very underrated song and one of my Top 10 probably.
In the summer that you came
There was something eating everyone
And the sunshine fund was low
We couldn't greet you with a simple hello

That random change to an F (I think if memory serves) when the "Have you flown?" part comes.....is so strange.  Love it.
