Those are two excellent songs!

I plead ignorance, but "Baby Blue" is my favorite single of the entire seventies. The only real runner-up is "It Wouldn't Have Made Any Difference" by Florence Warner, but nobody knows that.

Holy cow: I typed that out and only now realized Todd Rundgren produced both. Moving on:

Rich strong-armed me into posting here, but I am a bit afraid that revealing my musical tastes will pigeonhole me somewhat, because I'm one of those people who listens to bands exclusively; I get my hands on the entire catalog of songs by someone, listen to them all, and never listen to anything else ever again. So here goes (try to guess the number of bands I frequently listen to!)

2. 5'15 - The Who
3. Go To The Mirror! - The Who
4. Cold Snap - Harvey Danger
5. Some Day One Day - Queen
6. We're Not Gonna Take It/See Me Feel Me/Listening To You - The Who
7. Get Down, Make Love - Queen
8. Ogre Battle - Queen
9. The Punk And The Godfather - The Who
10. Authenticity - Harvey Danger
11. Sally Simpson - The Who
12. Brighton Rock - Queen
13. Moral Centralia - Harvey Danger
14. Now I'm Here - Queen
15. Defrocked - Harvey Danger
16. Seaside Rendezvous - Queen
17. The Real Me - The Who
18. Somebody To Love - Queen
19. Cool James - Harvey Danger
20. My Human Interactions - Harvey Danger
21. '39 - Queen
22. Diminishing Returns - Harvey Danger
23. 1921 - The Who
24. Who Are You (lost verse version) - The Who
25. Ballad of the Tragic Hero - Harvey Danger
26. Good Old Fashioned Lover Boy - Queen
27. I've Had Enough - The Who
28. Private Helicopter - Harvey Danger
29. This Is The Thrilling Conversation You've Been Waiting For - Harvey Danger
30. She Makes Me - Queen
31. Seven Seas of Rhye - Queen
32. Christmas - The Who
33. Radio Silence - Harvey Danger
34. Old Hat - Harvey Danger
35. Terminal Annex - Harvey Danger
36. Don't Stop Me Now - Queen
37. Pure And Easy - The Who
38. Under Pressure - Queen
39. You Better You Bet - The Who

I really want to write him a letter using only his hilariously awful lyrics.

Ok, I just did 11 songs, leaving out Harvey Danger, and sticking to one song per artist, because...because that's how I felt like doing this.

1. Monkees- Steppin' Stone (I grew up listening to my mom's old Monkees Greatest Hits record on vinyl using a tiny brown record player I had. I think it came with a record of kids' songs or something. The record had a crack in it that I would painstakingly try to align just enough so I could listen to it. Steppin' Stone easily got the most play, and while I now appreciate a whole lot more of the Monkees music, that one still remains a fave.)

2. Soul Coughing- Mr. Bitterness (The hubby got me hooked on Soul Coughing. I love Mike Doughty's vocals, and Ruby Vroom is a CD that always seems dirtier than their later recordings, and the lyrics have always hit me in a way I have a hard time describing.)

3. Barenaked Ladies- Tonight is the Night I Fell Asleep At the Wheel (Before the reunion of Harvey Danger, BNL was my favourite band and still hold a tight grip on number 2. Whenever they do something to reignite my passion for them, I have to admit, they leap back up to number 1 for a while. Maroon is easily my favourite BNL CD. It came out early my senior year of high school, and I skipped lunch to run out and buy it. I listened to the whole thing and when this final track came on, there was little else I could concentrate on. The story of man's final moments after a car crash set to a waltz? Yes, please.)

4. Ben Folds- Fired (It's fun. I love to sing along to it.)

5. Jimmy Ray- Sex for Beginners (Does anyone remember Jimmy Ray? God, I mean, I don't even know why I bought that CD, I hated that one song that got popular for some damn reason. I still hate that song. But, aside from the first two tracks, I love that CD, especially Sex for Beginners.)

6. Esthero- Every Day is a Holiday With You (I was working at a drive-in and got free admission to the theater downtown, since they had the same owner. With afternoon shows every single day, I saw a lot of movies that summer. I took a chance on Down with Love since I'm not really the "romantic comedy" type. I loved it. And I loved the soundtrack. And I love this song.)

7. The Go! Team- Everyone's a VIP to Someone (I got a bunch of CDs through an internet gift exchange, of a lot of bands I might not have otherwise heard of. This last track gives a perfect "end" feeling: happy, reflective, hopeful, mellow. I can never find the perfect words for it. But when I used to DJ weddings, I would play this song while everyone hugged and said their goodbyes and headed for the door, and to me, it always seemed to strike the perfect chord.)

8. Beach Boys- Good Vibrations (The other half of my childhood vinyl "collection," I know I got in trouble at least a couple of times for listening to the Beach Boys instead of going to bed. It's still hard to pick a favourite Beach Boys song. But this one always made me the happiest, I'd say.)

9. Jim's Big Ego- The Ballad of Barry Allen (I am such a nerd, right? And even though the song really doesn't seem to understand the Speed Force at all, I still love it.)

10. Foo Fighters- Everlong (The Foo flew from like...South America or something to play this on the Late Show the night Dave came back from his quintuple bypass. I like this song a great deal.)

11. Third Eye Blind- Wounded (Ok, I know, I know. Could I possibly be more of a late 90's person? But I love this fucking song, I don't care who knows it.)

I like the Soul Coughing pick. For me it's always been about "16 Horses". I agree there is something semi-indescribable in their music, particularly the early stuff.

...One of my top 5 BNL tracks there, too.

You two know "Lemon Lime"? Always wanted to open a movie with that.
