Hey R&P, What do Theologians know about my soul? (#21)?

Hi Everybody.

Well, here's the top 101 mix tape rules song of the day, . Mix tape rules simply means that I only allowed myself one song by each act. I hope you all enjoy it.

First off, here are the recent selections:

34. Neutral Milk Hotel - In The Aeroplane Over The Sea

33. Guided By Voices - Bulldog Skin

32. Oingo Boingo - On the Outside

31. Stephen Malkmus - Jenny and the Ess Dog

30. Jurassic 5 - Concrete Schoolyard

29. Jeremy Enigk - Carnival

28. Sammy - Encyclopedi-ite

27. the Velvet Underground - Who Loves the Sun

26. Apollo Sunshine - Ghost

25. the Smiths - Handsome Devil

24. John Lennon - Watching The Wheels

23. A.C. Newman - On The Table

22. The Roots - The Seed V. 2.0

So, we're just above the top 20 and I'm pretty excited about where it's going to take us. Wilco will grab the 21 spot with a song from the, in my opinion, underapreciated A Ghost Is Born album. I will say that I have come around to seeing that Yankee Hotel Foxtrot is the superior album, but I think this record really doesn't get the love it deserves. Anyways, there are a good 4 or 5 songs that I could take from them and slide in right here, but this one just shows so much of what I think is great about Wilco.

(I didn't have the album version, but I listened to this live one and it checks out nicely)

So, what did you think? What's your favorite Wilco tune?

Thanks a lot everybody for listening and commenting. I hope the week is off to a nice start.

Update:

Thanks a lot everybody.

Hi David,

Please don't apologize. Honestly, thank you for checking in. I'm glad you liked it.

Hi Radio,

I can get that. It's kind of like the Flaming Lips with me. All the people I know with similar tastes love them, but despite having a lot of elements I can appreciate it just does nothing for me on the whole. Kind of like that?

Thanks man. Have a good one.

Hi Captain,

Even if you weren't into that one you may want to have a look at Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. Also, before that point they were a really good sort of alt country act. That stuff doesn't quite hit me like the later stuff (I like it, but it's not as much my speed), but it's very good.

I may have just grabbed a song that was less up your alley.

Great choices VTD. I really dig both of those songs. CA Stars is particularly great.

    Hi Prof

    I'm a big Wilco fan. I think all of their records are great and underappreciated. "Yankee Foxtrot Hotel" "Being There" and "Mermaid Avenue" with Billy Bragg are my favorites.

    Not my favorite Wilco tune. To be honest, as happy as I am for Tweedy for getting clean, much of his writing has bored me since then. I was such a huge Uncle Tupelo fan that I immediately took to "A.M." and "Being There". I think "under-appreciated" is a polite way to describe "Ghost".

    I live in Chicago, so maybe I've been turned off by some of the over-the-top Wilco love, but they are still a very good band and I like them a lot. Favorite tune has got to be "Passenger Side" from "A.M."

    Hi Prof,

    I don't know that much about Wilco but that song was quite nice.

    I've only heard a couple of Wilco's songs but my favourite would be War On War.

  • Wilco ... Probably in the top 5 bands of the 2000's going into 2010's. Great song too. Always bewildered that they are not mentioned here hardly.

    FS; Walken .... "t" sometimes I do that.

    great tune I have not heard of them before so I don't have a favorite one by them, but I will look in to them more when I get the time. And thanks for some of the great music you have turned me on to over the last few months. Keep up the good work. And I'm sorry for not ansering your questions over the last little while. As I hardly come on here anymore.

    take care
