28 mars 2012, 22h52m par ackers07edit: 01/06/12 had to make this a top 25, rather than what was a top 20, as some songs deserve better than being mere "special mentions". The top 10-25 is sure to be rearranged eventually, I mean the dark horse 'Quiet' is unlike any other SP song, let's be honest, and 'Try, Try, Try' has a powerful message--especially the music video. Again this won't be easy...
This was near impossible to do! There are just so many great SP songs; the musical landscape they carved is so dense that you could see the band in an almost endless spectrum. My impression of SP has changed considerably, albeit rapidly, over the couple years that I discovered them. Without a doubt one of the greatest bands ever and personally my favourite (for 'Disarm' and the MCIS album alone). Songs with ' / ' between them are tied for sounding like the other half of each other; so here are my favourites, consisting of strength & quality, including the lyrics I can relate most strongly to (ones emboldened somewhat more so):

Step 1: Put your MP3 player or whatever on random.
Step 2: Post the first line from the first 25 songs that play, no matter how embarassing.
Step 3: Strike-through the songs when someone guesses correctly.
Step 4: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is cheating!

1 Radiohead - OK Computer
Using the textured soundscapes of The Bends as a launching pad, Radiohead delivered another startlingly accomplished set of modern guitar rock with OK Computer. The anthemic guitar heroics present on Pablo Honey and even The Bends are nowhere to be heard here. Radiohead have stripped away many of the obvious elements of guitar rock, creating music that is subtle and textured yet still has the feeling of rock & roll. Even at its most adventurous -- such as the complex, multi-segmented "Paranoid Android" -- the band is tight, melodic, and muscular, and Thom Yorke's voice effortlessly shifts from a sweet falsetto to vicious snarls. It's a thoroughly astonishing demonstration of musical virtuosity and becomes even more impressive with repeated listens, which reveal subtleties like electronica rhythms, eerie keyboards, odd time signatures, and complex syncopations. …

30 avr. 2010, 23h57m par korzunjuniorUnfortunatelly I don't know which song I've listeted to most of all in my life. But I'm really obsessed with this question. Probably I'd like to ask this question to my guardian angel after my death.
I have some suggestions. As to my iTunes library it either Today or Where is my mind. I'm not interested about band statistics and compute play counts of the songs including cover versions by other bands. I have at least 4 versions of Today and at least 7 versions of Where is my mind, may be that's why I believe these two are the leaders. Surely I'll write about these songs a bit later.
However, in my teenage I've been a Rammstein fan, so Du hast and Links 2 3 4 could be my most listened.
Nowadays I listen to People Just Like Us almost every morning (because of my 'First song of the day' policy), perhaps one day this song might gain leadership. Shout to the Lord is another challenger as I have lot of covers of this anthem and often listen to them.
