Bluefinger's 10th anniversary passed by this September, and I thought it would be a good chance to take stock of the Black Francis 2.0 era by making lists of our favourite BF songs from the last decade (i'll include Christmass).

I'm going to try both 20 and 10 song lists.

20 song:

Don't Get Me Wrong
Radio Lizards
Get Away Oil
Threshold Apprehension
Captain Pasty
Fort Wayne
The Tale of Lonesome Fetter
When They Come to Murder Me
Stars
Bad News
The Flower Song
Miriam and Florian
Six Legged Man
Seal
Magdelina
What Goes Boom
Silver Snail
Classic Masher
Head Carrier
All the Saints

10 Song

Don't Get Me Wrong
Threshold Apprehension
Captain Pasty
Fort Wayne
Bad News
Six Legged Man
Seal
Magdelina
Classic Masher Edit: Virginia Reel
All the Saints

This is an exercise I will try!

Which albums qualify? Extra songs.
[plus some of my favourite songs]

Bluefinger - Captain Pasty
Svn Fngrs - Garbage Heap
Love Sick EP, [I don't think I have that]
Petits Fours
The Golem - Bad News, You're Gonna Pay
NonStopErotik - Corrina
Abbabbuba - Virginia Reel, Do What You Want (Gyaneshwar)
Paley & Francis
Let The Peope Speak - Geode
Indie Cindy - Magdalena 318 [Kinda kicking myself for not going to Fargo to see the show. Ahhhhh!]
Head Carrier - Um Chagga Lagga

Then there's Women of War and the Head Carrier demos.

Look, there's 10 already, I'm not sure if those are my 10. Geode probably replaced with Miariam & Florian.

Dead Man's Curve should be in there, but it is also on early recordings...

I like seeing everyone’s lists, the similarities and differences.


Don Eduardo it’s interesting that you put Your Mouth Into Mine at the top of your list because I never liked that song much until this very week when I started going through all Frank’s songs in reverse alphabetical order and I listened to it a bunch. It really rocks and is a lot of fun!

All in my Mind
Curse
Um Chagga Lagga
Half Man
What Goes Boom
Six Legged Man
That Burnt Out Rock and Roll
Bill Jocko
Talent
O Little Cloud

Greens and Blues
Fort Wayne
Garbage Heap
Serious Curious
The Obedient Servant
O My Tidy Sum
Lolita
Stars
She's My Way
You Can't Break a Heart and Have it

I'd include Don't Get Me Wrong and Radio Lizards because Mark Mulcahy sings backing vocals but I've already got BF's awesome cover of Bill Jocko in there.

Don't know which top 10 I prefer :/

Man

Must compile my selection when I'm less tired. Would be ridiculously tough limiting mine to ten. Heck, I can't wait - here goes:

Threshold Apprehension
Bad News
The Maharal
O Little Cloud
Angels Come To Comfort You
Oh My Tidy Sum
When They Come To Murder Me
Cinema Star
Virginia Reel
Head Carrier
Custom All The Way
Classic Masher
Captain Pasty
Indie Cindy
What Goes Boom
Baal's Back
Seven Fingers
Garbage Heap
Don't Get Me Wrong
Curse

I probably could stick in Tight Black Rubber or Lolita or Stars in there for some of the Pixies stuff but I'm mildly content with that list for now.
