hehe. people choosing six! we will have no six tracks here! LOL! (league of gentlemen styley)

i know its very hard to choose. he didnt do to many rubbish tunes did he! :D

i too have a liking of his non studio material. however the layered depths to his sounds on grace and sketches are so cool.

darn you jeff for making it so difficult to choose 5 tracks (or 6!)  :)

my all time favourite is moodswing whiskey.
i'm thinking of getting some of those lyrics tattooed on my shoulder.

but my other favourites are eternal life, the sky is a landfill, so real and probably mojo pin.
and like, every single other song he ever made.
:D

Interesting studio choices flebbie  8)

I agree - I have never warmed fully to MSTD, probably due to my continued rage against the woamn claiming to be Jeff's mom [now that he's dead and can't argue].

My studio faves:
Calling You [Grace outtake]
Mojo Pin

live:
Je N'en Connai Pas Le Fin / Hymne a l'Amour [Bataclan]
Led Zep /James Brown / Bach medley [Pacific Club]
The Man That Got Away [GAMH]
The Boy With the Thorn In His Side [Meltdown]
Curtains / We All Fall In Love [WFMU]
Sweet Thing [Roulette Club]
The Way Young Lovers Do [CBGB]

So - what are you trying to say, Nick? Well, Howie - I guess I'll always believe that Jeff was the consummate interpreter, and that as much as I love Grace - it's probably my third or fourth favorite record of all time - he'll always be best singing the songs of others.

Satisfied Mind

Live:
I Know It's Over
I Shall Be Released (The infamous telephone performance)
Dido's Lament
What Will You Say?

Man I was trying to resist this post, but as Nicky has put his penny in the pot...
There's not a bad track on Grace, but I'll have to pick Last Goodbye. I have to say it was the Ben Britton song that really blew me away the first time I ever heard the album, but the rockers really shine.
What Will You Say - I love this song!
Oh, and of course, All Flowers In Time Bend Toward the Sun, solo, but the duet is just perfect.
Favorite fave for a while has been the WFMU gig as a whole, and Curtians/We All Fall In Love Sometimes especially... I like the version of Unforgiven right before knowing what it became...

My studio favourites;

Everybody Here Wants You
Gunshott Glitter
You and I
Morning Theft
New Years Prayer

Live Favourites

KangaRoo (every version of each show just transfixes me)
Lover You Should Have Come Over (Olympia CD)
Grace (because shows the real power of this song)
Dream Brother (each time magic)
All That I Ask (very often different but amazing each time)

and my favourite both live and studio:
Last Goodbye (each time)
Dido's Lament too

Ulalume is also a great great performance. But sure is not as song, but Jeff does it so wonderful.
