For U2, my list of closers will probably include Mothers Of The Disappeared, Love Is Blindness, and maybe The Wanderer. TGBHF is cut because it's not on the standard pressing of ATYCLB.

I'm currently listing stuff in alphabetical order. I'll then cut some stuff and make a ranking (not sure how much, maybe best 25? 50?). I'm about to do Split Enz right now, and here's my list of closers:

65 Days Of Static: Radio Protector (One Time For All Time)
Alcest: Tir Nan Og (Souvenirs D'un Autre Monde)
Anathema: Temporary Peace (A Fine Day To Exit)
The Bats: Half Way To Nowhere (Silverbeet)
Blackfield: End Of The World (Blackfield II)
The Cure: Untitled (Disintegration)
Cynic: How Could I? (Focus)
Dream Theater: Space-Dye Vest (Awake)
Dream Theater: Trial Of Tears (Falling Into Infinity)
Dream Theater: Only A Matter Of Time (When Dream And Day Unite)
Explosions In The Sky: Your Hand In Mine (The Earth Is Not A Cold Dead Place)
Marillion: Fugazi (Fugazi)
Marillion: Forgotten Sons (Script For A Jester's Tear)
Nick Drake: From The Morning (Pink Moon)
Opeth: The Apostle In Triumph (Orchid)
Pink Floyd: Sorrow (A Momentary Lapse Of Reason)
Pink Floyd: Bike (Piper At The Gates Of Dawn)
Pink Floyd: High Hopes (The Division Bell)
Porcupine Tree: Collapse The Light Into Earth (In Absentia)
Porcupine Tree: Feel So Low (Lightbulb Sun)
Porcupine Tree: Dark Matter (Signify)
Porcupine Tree: Stop Swimming (Stupid Dream)
Porcupine Tree: Fadeaway (Up The Downstair)
Sculptured: Our Illuminated Tomb (The Spear Of The Lily Is Aureoled)
The Sisters Of Mercy: Some Kind Of Stranger (First And Last And Always)

Don't worry, Tender Is The Night will make it when I get to The Triffids.

On a completely unrelated note, why the hell is it that only younger girls seem to be attracted to me?

I mean, I'm fine with it when I get into my 20s, but at 18, everyone under your age is just a bit wrong and a lot jailbait.

Hey AMENDMENT, how's it going?

Best album closer. EVAR.

And damn, how could I forget the Wanderer? I went through a period when I was overseas where all I wanted to do was listen to that song over and over again. Still love it. Don't think Bono could've done a better job than Cash on the vocals, either.

Ax is, I'm complaining about how bored I am with the internet and why only younger girls like me.

Somehow, I suspect you don't spend even half the time I do online.

And honestly, I feel my blog's content has been disappointingly shit this month. But in the next day or two, I plan to post my ponderings on the philosophical/theological question I posed to you the other night.

Lucky bastard. I wish girls would be attracted to me in the first place. I mean, if they ARE attracted to me, they sure as hell aren't letting me know. In my entire life, I've only known of two girls who were truly attracted to me. One is my ex and the other is now engaged. So.

G'day, Amendo. In my latest LJ entry, I mentioned: "If I were to do a list of greatest album openers of all time, Printemps Emeraude would certainly be on it, and Tir Nan Og would appear on the equivalent list for album closers."

So now I'm doing those lists for the hell of it.

I don't spend nearly as much time as you do online, at all. It's just that somehow it's beginning to bore me, and my eyes hurt from staring at a computer screen.

That question can quite possibly never be satisfactorily answered. Except by 42.

Girls aren't generally attracted to me because I look younger than I actually am. Taking a few years off 17 isn't good.

I'm inclined to say the best closer ever is Porcupine Tree's Fadeaway.

Cash completely owns Bono when it comes to The Wanderer.

Fair enough, but at least you've had a girlfriend, although by sounds of it you probably wish you hadn't.

From what I've seen and heard, AMENDMENT and I are both none for none in that respect. Oh well.

I don't know how I keep myself interested. I've enjoyed my days out lately so much, I must say.

Yeah, 42's probably the best answer. I think my "answer" will be just more questions. And a good serving of nihilism.

Ahh ok, that sucks. For me it's normally a bit hit-and-miss; my age has been guessed at from anything between 16 and 26. I guess most people just can't tell how old Asians are?

I'd tell you that it gets better to cheer you up, but I'm only a year older than you and to do so would just be a blatant lie. So, uh... I hear chloroform is a great way to pick up?

I'm gonna do this again, just cause I love the character:



Incidentally, the version of Desire from ZooTV Dublin is really, really, really, really irritating me. There's some stupid noise of a car or whatever being constantly repeated again and again. It seriously sucks.

SHIT, it's not just in Desire. It's in the rest of the boot from Desire. #@$%. That's... urgh.

EDIT: IT WAS FROM THE #@$%ING NEWS WEBSITE THAT I WAS LOOKING AT!
