Yeah, it's my opinion, here at my blog: http://www.trapperjennmd.org.

I apologize for the morphing font, copy/paste fun will do that. If I thought
it fucked up the reading too much, I would have changed it, but it actually
reflects my current state quite well, as I have been typing it up since 1 in
the morning and am a solid hour late for work.

Hope you dig it, fan-to-fan, and of course supply your own lists of varying
number if you desire.

I loved the analysis of Sweet Shine, very cool... this stuff goes under my radar all the time.
:

"Cowboys are languishin'/Little girls are bees/Is it really a green stagecoach/Crawlin' up to me?"

Lines so memorable Thurston quoted them at the beginning of his Alabama Wildman book; in response to an interviewers query, he would claim to have chosen them for their quintessential Kim-ness. I think they made an impression worth regurgitating for a different reason. The cowboys are the boys in the band, in moments of relaxation, say pre- or post-concert. The buzzing girls are as close as any band on SY's level can get to "groupies". The green stagecoach--genius fucking use of Wild West imagery throughout; note also the "Marlboro belt buckle baby" line in the first verse--is jealousy, visiting the wife of the guitar hero.

Funny you should mention F. Scott Fitzgerald: there are two SY songs about The Great Gatsby (neither of which you included on your list, "I Love Her All The Time," and "Green Light").

Whoa. Only had time to skim that but will need to revisit and study. Excellent analysis coupled with personal emotional interpretation. A+

Yeah this sounds like my list... almost bang on, probably throw in a Murray Street track instead of Cotton Crown, I don't like tthe studio version so much.

Am I the only person who didn't notice Starfield Road was about butt sex?
