Pretty good list- I actually agree with #1. But Ceremony should definitely be here. I’d cut Crystal to make room for it and cut Elegia in favor of Your Silent Face.
I’m very surprised that Mature Themes didn’t make it. However Fiona Apple is also my #1, so I agree!

Not so much.
This party looks like it was a blast.
Dean Wareham of Galaxie 500 / Luna is my personal favorite. His solos are always otherworldly.
I hate when people talk during shows.
The one with the white pony.
really? I actually really dislike their version. hate the way they change up the melody.
it’s like colin meloy’s trying to sing!
I agree! There have been some great bootlegs floating around, but a professional soundboard would be amazing.
It’s too bad Morrissey can’t stand the TV. He’s missing out on Breaking Bad. Or maybe he’s just still upset with what they did with Sal on Mad Men. I mean, who isn’t?
Clearly you’ve never heard “Only in Dreams.”
hate this kid
I really don’t like her fronting a band. Can’t she go back to playing a guitar and piano?
Awesome! I hope it doesn’t suck like when Spike brought back Ren & Stimpy.
This is an awful performance. I like the album a lot, but Ariel himself is totally obnoxious.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F062h9ePl4Q – is my favorite of the two
My favorite Joy Division cover by a long shot is Galaxie 500 doing Ceremony. Incredible.
However for Love Will Tear Us Apart, Swans have two great versions.
I get Joanna Newsom. I love Joanna Newsom. I think she’s the best female songwriter working today.
Still, it took me numerous listens to get into Have One on Me. Yet when the album clicked, it clicked in a massive way. I understand that she’s not for everyone, but the album really requires time and an attentive listen. You can’t just listen once through your laptop speakers while multi-tasking on the internet. Eventually melodies stick, lines resonate, and the music becomes incredibly moving. Still, even if time proves her as something still to be understood, its near impossible not to appreciate her lyrics and musical talent. There’s simply no one else out there right now writing at her level.
I wonder if this is the first case ever where a song had to be lengthened rather than shortened for a Late Night performance. In any case, this is amazing and I love the new solo section.
Some great ones here, but yikes is that Bridges & Balloons cover awful.
The original is one of my favorite Christmas tunes, but I’m not digging this cover. Actually, I’ve never liked a cover of this song.
I don’t get the popularity of Here Comes The Sun. I think it’s stupid.
Then again I don’t really like any of the songs in the top 8. From 9-15 though, it’s great.
I love Cut, but man this video is certainly not how I want to remember the Slits. Auto-tune!? Jeez.
Yeah, seriously. This is adorable.
