28 Mar 2012, 22:52 by 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):

24 Feb 2009, 11:06 by oddworldincWe've all gone through the loss, the suffering, the suffering of knowing you're never going to hear another new song from the band you thought was going to be around forever!! What a big slap in the face, especially to those who just found out about a band, only to hear from someone that they broke up 5 years ago, ouch.
In no specific order, here's my personal list on Bands that need to reunite and make my life complete again.
1) The Distillers
The Distillers just broke up in 2006, but the thought of not hearing Brody Dalle's pissed off lyrics screaming into my ears two minutes at a time, just depresses the hell out of me. I mean, sure she's got her new band Spinnerette with fellow Distillers band mate Tony Bevilacqua. But like many others would say, It's just not the same. Brody's not pissed, and the screaming is gone. On the plus side, this band seems to be very promising, their first two singles Ghetto Love and Valium Knights are pretty good…

Here's a mixtape for november.
Pretty tough job to find songs that makes me go "OH SHIT", but here they are:
1) Flowers and Football Tops
5.14 - When James Allan start singing "You are my sunshine" i go OH SHIT - probably cause i've got goosebumps all over. So cool!
0.19 - Pretty corny, but anyway. I went OH SHIT the first time i heard the cat-choir-meoows in this song. And the lyrics are funny.
3) Oh What A World
2.25 - The first time i heard the song i thought: "OH SHIT - I recognize this song..." And of course i did...the way he blend in Ravels "Bolero" is really beautiful.
4) Take Me Out
0.50 - I really think this song might be my favourite for the last couple of years. And i guess i just love the way the song changes after 50 seconds. They slow it down and bring in the coolest riff. Gives me chills and think "OH SHIT" every time i hear it.
