I really don't think that I could make a top-ten National songs list. They are just an incredibly consistent band. I'll try anyways, in no particular order:

Terrible Love
Bloodbuzz Ohio
Afraid of Everyone
Mistaken for Strangers
Slow Show
Racing Like a Pro
All the Wine
Abel
Baby, We'll Be Fine
Available

Also, top five albums of the 90s, again in no particular order:

Bjork: Homogenic
Depeche Mode: Violator
Portishead: Dummy
Radiohead: OK Computer
U2: Achtung Baby

I really have no idea how I would rank these against one another.

That's an excellent description of it for me: extraordinarily jarring, but the fact that it feels seconds from falling apart makes it feel all the more special, especially since Matt bares his soul through the lyrics in a way he seldom does. It's a very haunting song, very claustrophobic.

It's a common fetish for a doting man to ballerina on the coffee table, cock in hand.

That one has to ring a bell.

Top five albums of the 2000s:

1. Radiohead: In Rainbows
2. Radiohead: Kid A
3. Radiohead: Hail to the Thief
4. The National: Alligator
5. Robert Plant & Alison Krauss: Raising Sand

I know that it probably looks daft to have three Radiohead albums at the top of the list, but, the more that I listen to those albums, the more I think that they have been strides ahead of the field for the last ten years or so - perhaps even longer.

This.

It has such a nice melody and the lyrics are great too. Afraid Of Everyone is a nice second.

This page is quality. I wasn't sure if people liked that song or not; it tends to get overlooked in favor of Secret Meeting and...most of the second half.

Guys, I have one humble request. Please include music lists in your posts. I have lots of good memories in this thread, and will be sad to see it get locked when it maxes out. Short / random lists included at the end of responses will ease my pain of seeing it eventually lock and disappear forever. Thank you, kind sirs/madams/transgenders.


Artists of note that I will be seeing this month:

Fleet Foxes
Explosions in the Sky
No Age
The Decemberists
