I know the exact bit you're talking about. I also love Colin's bass in the outro.

On a more light hearted note, I've always been a sucker for the orchestral flourish/club beat at the start of Daddy's Gonna Pay For Your Crashed Car.

I'm glad you do because I was not describing it very well. Yeah, great stuff.

The vicious guitar in the choruses of Sleater-Kinney's 'Jumpers'.

Great song, and my favorite SK album.

Favorite track off the album is, of course, MODERN GIRL.

The "I don't pretend to know what you want" bit? Yeah, that's great. On a similar note but moving an album earlier, Whispers and Moans has a couple of really great parts, the "love that sound/time erased" bit in the middle and the "we are the mirrors" outro. The live versions where Neil really loses it on those parts, like on the bonus disc with the Best Of, are absolutely fantastic.

Hah, that's one of the reasons why I think it's one of the lesser songs on Zooropa. I just think it sounds cheesy and awkward.

It is, but I meant after that. Approaching the end, where the music just takes off and his vocals go into some vague inaudible refrain that I've never quite deciphered. That bit.

In context I think it works just fine. For lesser songs on that album I'd pick the slight 'Some days are better than others'.

Easily their best imo, forty or so minutes of sustained balancing between beauty and chaos.

The 'mother, I can feel, the soil falling over my head' part in The Smiths' 'I Know It's Over'.

Yes, that is a surprise. I'd also be surprised by hearing your favorite section of One Tree Hill.

Brilliant, heartbreaking song. My favorite part is the "I know it's over, still I cling; I don't know where else I can go" line. The way he delivers it is devastating.

What's your take on his sexuality iYup? I've always found it so interesting, the way he has kept it ambiguous throughout his career. Guess it makes you focus on the music and not stuff that doesn't matter. Kele followed his lead.
