Building off the discussion in the other thread that's taking on a life of its own, I thought it would be worth dedicating a thread towards compiling "Best of Pixies 2.0" tracklists.

One could go about this as either creating a 12 or 15 song LP, or a bigger 23 song "best of" (23 is somewhat arbitrary, but that's the length of "Wave of Mutilation: Best of Pixies," so might be interesting to work within those constraints - plenty of great tracks were left off the original). It may be an album too early for the selection to get truly interesting, as the first Pixies album was working with 4 LPs a very strong EP or mini-LP and a wealth of b-sides ) but we could always just update when the next one comes out.

Here would be my bigger one:

1) What Goes Boom
2) Magdalena 318
3) Blue Eyed Hexe
4) Greens and Blues
5) Indie Cindy
6) Classic Masher
7) Head Carrier
8) Um Chugga Lugga
9) All I Think About Now
10) All the Saints
11) Graveyard Hill
12) Catfish Kate
13) In the Arms of Mrs. Mark of Cain
14) Silver Bullet
15) Daniel Boone
16) Bird of Prey (this is the hardest one for me: could replace with This is My Fate or Death Horizon)
17) The Good Works of Cyrus
18) Human Crime
19) Nomatterday
20) Dregs of the Wine
21) Get Simulated
22) Thunder and Lightning
23) Doggerel
