I've been listening to nothing but Sonic Youth the past couple of weeks. Bought some of their albums about a year ago but I've just bought some more. Great band, with some great songs but imo there is a lot of filler on most SY albums. Anyways my favs:

Schizophrenia
Teenage Riot
Trilogy
Tom Violence
Star Power
Mote
Genetic
Incinerate
On the strip
Superstar - I owe the film Juno for this one
Sunday

I still have a lot of SY songs I haven't heard yet so this list could change a lot. In fact this list could change daily or even hourly.

There is a SY song for every mood and state of mind.

P.S. I really don't get why so many SY fans rate Eric's Trip so highly......each to their own but I don't get it's popularity. Peace.

I thought it wasn't very popular, I was the only one to put it in my top 10 (I think), everyone else had Hey Joni or Rain King.
