Which Is The Best Doves Song?

Because the diversity of this band is so incredible, I just can't decide. It's also because of this reason that I had to choose so many songs. They are just all so good in completely different ways. I've hand picked the best songs from each album here, at least in my opinion. My favourite is The Cedar Room. I suppose my top 5 would be:

1. The Cedar Room
2. There Goes The Fear
3. Sea Song
4. Satellites
5. Pounding

Happy picking...

It was a difficult choice, but I chose Cedar Room. I guess my top five would be:
[list=1][*]Cedar Room[*]Pounding[*]The Man Who Told Everything[*]Satellites[*]Sea Song[/list=1]

that's absolutely impossible, sorry!

right now I guess I'd go with Words, There Goes the Fear, Pounding, Satellites, and Caught By the River. the first ones I loved off of Lost Souls were Sea Song, The Man Who Told Everything, and Here it Comes, but I love every song on that album equally now and it's fast becoming that way with The Last Broadcast too. so basically I can't pick. pretty sad huh?

Hi Michael,

Okay, first of all I have to say that I have not heard the first doves album yet so I can only vote based on the latest album. I dont think I can do a top five for that reason. I got The Last Broadcast because I wanted to see what all the hype was about and I was very pleasantly surprised.

I voted for There Goes the Fear. I like it for its complexity and the many transitions that it goes through during the coarse of the song. It begins very simply and then at some point it just shoots off in a new direction. This is the one that moves me the most when I listen to the album. Michael, I am sure you could put it into words far better than I can.

You look to those you love to justify
You turn around and life's passed you by
Think of me when you're coming down
But don't look back when leaving town
Oh think of me when he's calling out
But don't look back when leaving town

Think of me when you close your eyes
But don't look back when you break off ties
Yeah think of me when you're coming down
But don't look back when leaving town today


I would also like to add that the intro to The Last Broadcast always makes me think of Pink Floyd.

What a GREAT poll!! SO difficult, this must be like choosing between kids. I voted for The Cedar Room, it is so epic, very much like 'Bad' is for U2. But I find it hard to argue with Pounding or There Goes The Fear.

Doves top 5 for me:
Cedar Room
There Goes The Fear
Pounding
The Last Broadcast
Spaceface

Hey Calluna!

How are you? Oh my, you really would LOVE Lost Souls. It's even better than The Last Broadcast, in my opinion. There are more pop, and "big," songs on Last Broadcast, but Lost Souls is more of an andventure, more of an "album", you know what I mean? I guess it would be like comparing ATYCLB with Zooropa or, say, The Bends with OK Computer. I prefer the latter albums because of the "whole being more than the sum of their parts" thing. Lost Souls will feed you with the moods and feelings that you didn't even know you were missing, but had been. It has to be digested to be fully appreciated (head-phones are a very good idea, and so is listening to it in the dark), but it also makes great background music apparently (I haven't tried it, but that's what I've heard). It has quickly become one of my all time favourites, and I consider Doves to be right up there with Radiohead, in large part, because of Last Broadcast.

And, yes, I completely agree with you about 'There Goes The Fear'. It does meander, change direction, and soar off into the land of the infectious. Great, great percussion. Great melody. Great mood and feeling. Great band.

Hope you're doing well. (I must e-mail you soon!)
