Could You Be The One - Hüsker Dü

Just the most perfect power-pop song in the world. Just fantastic.

And the Gun Club - Sex Beat, and Mother Of Earth are just as perfect as possible.

Belle & Sebastian are great at making perfect pop-tunes such as Lazy Line Painter Jane, Asleep On A Sunbeam, Dog On Wheels, and Get Me Away From Here, I'm Dying.

There's some good choices here. Hip Priest is most correct. Votes for Schizophrenia are also correct. The Peel box set version of Smile is also perfect. Whoever voted for the Delgadoes is also correct.

My votes go for: Special D - Come With Me; The Carpenters - Goodbye to Love; Abba - Dancing Queen; The Shaggs - Philosophy of the World; Meanwhile, back in Communist Russia - Morning After Pill [I'll up this one later if I remember, much neglected band]; Atari Teenage Riot - Start the Riot; Bomb 20 - Flip Burgers or Die!!!!; ELO - Mr Blue Skys; Pretty much anything by Keiji Haino; Pulp - Babies/ do you remember the first time?...

I'll stop there, I'm getting a little too excited. I've done a little wee in my pants.

The one that always springs to mind is Glen Campbell's 'Wichita Lineman'.Such a perfect song.

How can there be so many perfect songs? They can't all be perfect. If there really are perfect songs out there, how come we're not all naming the same songs?

Well,i'm gutted that noone has mentioned 'Witchita Lineman' as there is no fault to be found on that song.Perfect from start to finish and the fact that it is sang by a studmuffin adds to all the pleasurable things in this world.

i can't wait to go to a friend of mine's home to check some of the songs mentioned in this thread.

"And I need you more than want you/ and I want you for all ti-i-iime..."

True. That is excellent, perfect. On the Country tip, Hank Williams' When you're tired of breaking others hearts, Dolly Parton's My Tennessee mountain home/ coat of many colours and Willie Nelson's blue eyes crying in the rain. Oh, fuck me... Fucking... Kenny Rogers' Lucille. That's on a mixtape. Such an outstandingly perfect song.
