Yeah, as awesome as HD is, I don't think they covered that many Poison songs.

(In fact, that's probably why they're so awesome... OH SNAP!)

When I think "Best of", in my mind, ALL of the singles along with some fan favorites should be put on the compilation. Since the band only has three records out, it's kind of hard to narrow down everything (especially when all of the songs are decent). Here's my take on what it would be...13 song listing.

1. Sad Sweetheart of The Rodeo
2. Jack The Lion
3. Pike St./Park Slope
4. Old Hat
5. Meetings with Remarkable Men (Show Me The Hero)
6. Flagpole Sitta
7. Authenticity
8. Cream & Bastards Rise
9. Carlotta Valdez
10. Private Helicopter
11. Wine, Women & Song
12. Sometimes You Have to Work on Christmas
13. Problems and Bigger Ones

get your poison tongue out of my ear.

A Thread Resurrected
Okay, the hypothetical "Greatest Hits" thread fizzled out in 2005. But I wasn't here yet. So I've temporarily reanimated its cadaverous husk, for no better reason than to toss in my near-worthless two cents, which I will then place on the thread's eyes before its reinterment.

This isn't a list of my personal favorite HD tracks (although there's plenty of overlap). It's the list I'd suggest if, say, Rhino asked for my input. (They won't.) I'd have included more, but I restricted the length to the running time of a single CD.

When choosing among album tracks, I leaned toward the ones that tended to be live staples (using the Crocodile Cafe recordings as a guide).

Radio Silence: The History of Harvey Danger

Dining Car
Flagpole Sitta
Private Helicopter
Carjack Fever (early version)
Carlotta Valdez
Radio Silence
Sometimes You Have To Work On Christmas (Sometimes)
Save It For Later
This Is The Thrilling Conversation You've Been Waiting For
Authenticity
Defrocked
Sad Sweetheart Of The Rodeo
Meetings With Remarkable Men
Mainland (demo)
Wine, Women And Song
Little Round Mirrors
Picture, Picture
Cream And Bastards Rise
The Show Must Not Go On

I admire anyone who includes "Dining Car" on a greatest-hits collection.

We can talk about it later
But there's no later
Is there?

Whither "Dining Car"
johnnyfootballhero Wrote:I admire anyone who includes "Dining Car" on a greatest-hits collection.

Two posts and I'm already admired! Big Grin

I wanted to represent every stage of the band's history, which includes the demo tape.

Why Dining Car?

Because it has the word incarnadine in the lyrics.

I am clueless as to why but "Dining Car" just doesn't do it for me. "Ignore Me", on the other hand, does it all. Also, the KJV "Carjack Fever" is far superior than the demo version in my opinion.

"Fuck you board elitist."

If I was just picking my favorites, I'd probably have gone with either "Love Bug" or "Scar Tissue" to represent the demo tape. And I also prefer the KJV "Carjack Fever" to the earlier version. If this was about my personal favorites, the list would have been different.

My friend heard "Ignore Me" on the radio and was convinced it was either Sugar or Bob Mould.

Yes.

Wait, what? It was on the radio?

Surprisingly, Flagpole Sitta was NOT my first Harvey Danger Song.

RE: If you made a HD greatest hits, what songs would it have?
Definitely something that didn't make it into the three main albums

1. My Human Interactions
2. Lester Ballard
3. Dining Car
4. Pity & Fear
5. Plague of Locusts
6. Carjack Fever (Original)
7. Defrocked
8. Heroine With an E
9. One of their never-before-heard songs that should have made it onto Merrymakers. Perhaps 'Portland or Hell'.

To be fair, you have to have a high IQ to understand Harvey Danger...

By my understanding, no surviving recording of "Portland or Hell" exists, and nobody remembers how it went.
