It's another thread!

Yeah, fucking Debaser or something. It's in my top 100 anyway.

It wont let me delete. The bin link doesn't work even on the multiple rerpises. I'm not even actually sure what I think the best pixies song is anyway, it's just sometimes when I get drunk Debaser sounds amazing! Also when I'm sober, but I feel less over-enthusiastic about it then. I'm relieved that I at least didn't subject anyone other then myself to my singing.

edit. Hey what's that extra firefox window! Ahhhhhh.... um chagga lagga with extra chilli sauce but only when I falafel

Absolute genius.

It is a clever peice of song writing, and remains true to the originally complex style of early Pixies. The tempo changes are noteworthy.

Motorway and The Happening are some of their best songs to me.

All Pixies songs from Surfer to Trompe are 10/10. And Sad Punk is 11/10.

What is it about The Sad Punk that I'm not fully appreciating? I also agree with the holiday guy, this thread is lame and doesn't deserve consideration prior to anything. I suppose I just got drunk and wanted to say something about someone I used to know who died this year

I like how Trompe/Bossa songs are repeatedly cited as the best while those album are generally considered weak/not as good as the other ones by reviewers.

I wonder how Indie Cindy will be regarded a few years down the line.

I have a feeling that Indie Cindy will always be regarded as the worst Pixies album. (Im not saying it's horrible, just saying that the other albums are all better)

I would say Motorway to Roswell is the best Pixies song. I don't think I even understand how good that song is.

And that would probably be a fitting song for one's deathbed as well.

And yeah, even though Indie Cindy the album has really grown on me it's hard to imagine it ever ranking above any other Pixies album, unless Head Carrier is really bad.

Dead is their best song. A song locked in ambergris. Every time is like the first.

I'm partial to River Euphrates (Version Two).

That's a completely different question. I'd say WIMM to ease them into it, then Monkey to introduce them to the LQL dynamics and the scream, then Dancing The Manta Ray to see if they like the weirdness. If they're still with you, then follow it up with Caribou, or Dead, or Break My Body...

Down To The Well (Demo) was the first Pixies song I heard and I liked it enough to get myself a ticket to a show.

Maybe so but it doesn't make this any easier. I heard Bone Machine first.
