When I meet new people, I like to ask them to make lists of things. What’s your five favorite movies? Three funniest things that ever happened to you? Top ten bands? The funny thing is that everytime someone turns the question back to me, I hate answering it. It’s like that part in High Fidelity (I think it’s only in the book) where he realizes that the top five list he gave the reporter just wasn’t right. Here’s my current* five favorite albums. They link to my favorite track from each album.
Dark Was the Night- Compilation
Vampire Weekend- Vampire Weekend
Have a Ball- Me First and the Gimme Gimme’s
Josh Ritter- The Animal Years
For Emma, Forever Ago- Bon Iver
Notable Mention: Pet Sounds (Summer is coming, after all)
*Note: I reserve the right to change these at a moment’s notice. They will most likely be different tomorrow.
Here’s a bonus list (short but sweet) of some of my favorite youtube (some official, some unofficial) music videos.
