STRAIGHT ACROSS THE BREEZE!!!!!!

It's one of my favorite songs ever, but the sprawl is also excellent. If the sprawl is better live than my mind may change. Close race though.

The Sprawl. My favourite song on Daydream Nation, I love the beginning and end section.

Its tough to choose... they both stretch out in similar ways with long winding outros, the sprawl to me is one of those signature sounding SY songs yet it has a beautiful intertwining guitar melody and an amazing ending sequence. 'crosse the breeze like said previously is just a bad-ass pummelling song, probably one of the "fastest" and "heaviest" (not like heavey guitar but "heady-heavy") songs in the catalog which to me makes it a fav. on the album...

'Cross the breeze
The Sprawl's ending is awesome, but the first part goes in the same vein than other SY songs from the goo era.
Cross the breeze, instead, it's a unique song, one of the most powerful in Sy's discography and it's great from start to finish.

THE SPRAWL

my favorite Sonic Youth track of all time

best SY lyrics ever, great delivery from Kim, incredible drone riffs, surging energy, and as everybody else has mentioned, that blasted beauty of a coda......

That's like asking if I prefer air to breathe or water to drink. Maybe a slight edge to Cross the Breeze. These two songs are at the very top of SY's achievements and are the main reason I'm so excited for the DDN show.
