Sonic Youth's Beautiful Side
 
When people think of Sonic Youth they automatically think noisy chaotic feedback driven dissonant sounding guitars but sonic youth is a diverse band. They've released some beautiful songs. So I'm asking what are your favorite beautiful sonic youth songs?


I like: Diamond Sea, Genetic, Cotton Crown, Sunday, Tuff Gnarl, Saucer Like, Paper Cup Exit, I Love You Golden Blue ,Lee#2 and Karen Revisted.

My favourite SY song is Beauty Lies in the Eye, which is very lovely and pretty indeed.

As a whole, don't forget SYR6.

Why would they think that? I'd assume that most likely people have heard songs from their post-dirty era, which is far from noisy and chaotic.

A few beautiful songs on otherwise relatively noisy albums:
Cotton crown, Brave men run (in my family), Schizophrenia.

well, not any particular sparse songs.but are several months I'm into A Thousand L period and with period I mean sonorities. I dont listen so often that album and live recordings though. but I really like all that.

I'm suprised no one has mentioned Unwind. I generally find the whole of ATL to be quite peaceful and melodic too. I think the way they mix the beautiful melodies with the choas is what appeals to me most about SY.

beauty in sonic youth is subtle, raw, relevant;
written into the song, and seeming to be connected to the inner workings of each performer....
a few songs i remember fondly that are of this category:

the intro to bad moon rising
shadow of a doubt
snare, girl
theresa's sound-world
on the strip
schizophrenia
genetic
hey joni
tunic
bone
trilogy
hoarfrost
dripping dream
,..

For sure! I agree with this completley. You have songs like "Drunken Butterfly" as well as songs like "Dripping Dream" that take two completley different perspectives on who Sonic Youth are. They combine some chaotic, and some peaceful sounds to create different collaborations of noise. They cover sounds from nearly every genre that I can think of, and that's what I like about them.

screamingskull 03.21.2006 03:55 PM

Kotton Krown, Diamond Sea and Schizophrenia are BEYOND beautiful.

This is a good thread for those wanting to make a chill SY playlist.

Neongod 03.22.2006 12:56 AM

Good call on Unwind.

I'd say Karen Koltrane is pretty nice.

schizophrenicroom 03.22.2006 12:58 AM

Anagrama is very beautiful.

AllHandsOnTheBigOne 03.22.2006 01:04 AM

No one has mentioned "Sweet Shine". I think that song is rather pretty.
