perfect songs
 
so,i think there are a few "perfect songs"...i mean,not the best songs in the world,just songs that you like and have NOTHING,not a single note,a sigle background noise,a pause or wathever that you'd like to change and that give you shivers for their sheer beauty every time you listen to them.i'll start with a short list of mines:
to bring you my love - p.j.harvey
first breath after coma - explosions in the sky
water - blonde redhead
venus in furs - VU
fear of fireflies - calla
schizophrenia - sonic youth (duh)
mad world - gary jules
she moves in secret ways - polly paulusma
pull the wires from the wall - the delgados
the kidnapper bell - mono
all we ever wanted was everything - bauhaus
heart and hands - devics

uh,so many "romantic" choices

this is not exactly like a "your fav songs of all time",but kinda...forgive me.

Most of my "perfect songs" are by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds:

The Ship Song
Are You The One That I've Been Waiting For?
Into My Arms
Straight To You

Or Cowboy Junkies:

Sun Comes Up, It's Tuesday Morning
'Cause Cheap Is How I Feel

I second First Breath After Coma. The part where the drums kick in is the most beautiful part of music ever.
These are good too:
Jewel - Foolish Games
Cat Power - Moonshiner, No Sense, and You May Know Him
Joanna Newsom - Swansea and "En Gallop"
mewithoutYou - Bullet to Binary
Norma Jean ft. Aaron Wiess - Memphis Will Be Laid To Waste
At the Drive-in - Rascuache
Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Maps
Xiu Xiu - Apistat Commander, Hives Hives, and their Bauhaus cover
Radiohead - Planet Telax
Parenthetical Girls - The Weight She Fell Under
Death Cab for Cutie - Expo '86
CoCo Rosie - Terrible Angels
Animal Collective - Winter's Love

Sorry, Hayden, but Chan Marshall has a terrible voice, and no song on which she sings could ever be perfect.

Do feel free to be rude about Nick Cave in return, he's no great shakes in the vocal department either.

I just don't like anything the Bad Seeds have ever done. Chan Marshall's voice is fucking brilliant and every song she sings is heartbreaking.

You have no taste, dear. Sorry to be the bringer of bad news.

dddddddddaamn,sonicl,you ruined the mood!i was giggling and all,now i'm worried that this thread could turn into a chan/bad seeds bashing/supporting thing :( ;) :)
hayden,eits just finished recording their new album,but it will be released next spring i think...hopefully it will leak before the official release date,usually they don't care at all about sharing and stuff like that...and i'll buy it as soon as it come out,i simply can't wait that long.their travels in constant ep is amazing too.

sonicl 10.18.2006 09:43 AM

Don't worry, Hayden's put me right.

But he's totally wrong about The Bad Seeds.

I'm not being blunt and saying they aren't good. I just don't find anything they've ever done enjoyable.

I've gone weak at the knees just thinking about that song.
