Modest Mouse Top 100 Songs Countdown

Postby TotoroSteve » Sun Nov 01, 2015 2:13 pm

Hey all,

For anyone who may be interested, I am working my way through my Top 100 rankings. I cover 5 songs in each installment and am currently working on the Top 15.

Each part has lyrics, videos (some live) and my thoughts and reasoning for the ranking.

Every part has links to the whole series.

Here's the link to the first post:

Interesting stuff. Teeth like God's shoeshine is a top 5 for me but wouldn't take first place, there's just something about the arrangement and opening riff that makes it impossible for me to put it above Cowboy Dan. It's hard to put into words exactly what it is but try whistling Teeth and Cowboy Dan, and you might see it. I'm more of a melody guy though.
Heart Cooks Brain definitely belongs in the top 5 based on lyrical imagery alone so good choice there.

Thanks for reading. I am just finishing up the last of 22 installments in that series. No two people would have the same Top 10 in the same order. It amazes me that there are so many incredible songs.

It's good to know that after 50 hours of writing, someone was reading :)
