Don’t Look Back in Anger.
New Slang is not only my favorite Shins song, but my favorite song in general. I know it’s not the coolest thing to say, but there’s something about that song that really crawled under the skin of a 14 year old who felt trapped in the midwest. Plus, it’s gorgeous to listen to, of course.
I’m glad to see some loves for Animals (maybe my favorite record of theirs), though I would drop Dogs and replace it with Sheep. Holy shit that’s an amazing song.
While I love love love High Violet, I agree with this. I remember the first time I listened to Alligator, a cold listen, mind you, suggested by a friend. I wasn’t even sure what to think. I wasn’t instantly hooked. But I knew I had to listen to it again. And the again. And then I was in love.
I’m so glad that “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down” is number one. Truly one of the greatest songs ever written. I would have liked to have maybe seen “Rockin’ Chair,” but still a great list.
Holy shit, that was good
This is really good. Hope I get to see them play in Portland, they’re really great live.
