One of my favorite videos on the internet.
Not me. I still love OEND and Shepherd's Dog, and would put probably two of his songs in my all time top 25.
Probably a top 5 I&W song for me. The highlights on that record for me were:
"Walking Far from Home" "Tree by the River" "Monkeys Uptown" "Rabbit Will Run" "Godless Brother in Love"
I also consider The Trapeze Swinger to be in the top 5 songs ever written in the history of music. Maybe even top 3. Not kidding.
New track is legit great
Oh and "The Sea And The Rhythm" is the best song ever written about sex go ahead and @ me
It's an incredible song.
In a few I'll make a list of what I would put on a "best of" album
"Fever Dream" and "The Trapeze Swinger."
It's definitely up there.
Agreed. I remember in the lead-up to this album thinking that those songs sounded pretty good in the live videos. I think it's the production/arrangements that killed them for me.
Yep. It comes off as corny sounding much of the time.
Kiss Each Other Clean is my favorite, followed by Woman King and the first two albums, not really into Shepherd or Ghost. This new song's excellent.
Update: love the new song. Excited for this now.
What's with the love for The Trapeze Swinger? I've been hearing grandiose statements about this song for years now, and its nice, but its the kind of song Sam Beam writes in his sleep, not top 5 of all time.
I know that's a subjective ranking anyways, I just don't get it.
To me it's a culmination of all of his best writing attributes. It's fucking 10 minutes long and it could be another 10 minutes long and I wouldn't get bored. IMO
Lol, not a person on the planet could write that song in their sleep.
Yeah, there's really no question in my mind that that's his magnum opus.
I guess that's valid. "Fever Dream" is always going to be the first melody of his that really caught my ear and takes me places just on hearing it.
Sodom, South Georgia would end up in my favorite songs ever list probably
The last three songs on that record are so perfect.
Just listened. It's really good.
My hope is that the rest of the album sounds like this. Except with pedal steel.
Are we getting this list or what?
The song is absolutely incredible! Sam still has it!
Faded From The Winter
Upward Over The Mountain
The Sea & The Rhythm
Naked As We Came
Cinder And Smoke
Sunset Soon Forgotten
Sodom, South Georgia
House By The Sea
Boy With A Coin
Flightless Bird, American Mouth
Tree By The River
Big Burned Hand
is that too long for a greatest hits album?
as for my favorite songs ever list.. i have heart palpitations even just thinking about making that haha
