22) "The Mid-Morning Recording" Ra Ra Riot-'The Rhumb Line'
Certainly one of the best American bands around today; certainly in the live venue. In the past four years, I've already seen this band eight times, and the last time was the best; as was the previous. As long as this band exists, I have no problem going to see them play anytime, anywhere I can. As a fan of Kate Bush myself, somehow I could hear the influence before they started pulling songs from her catalog. Here's to hoping Kate Bush will take their offer and produce an album for this wonderful, elegant, classy, atrractive, astoundingly talented band. Last night when I needed an album to play, this album came to mind, and once again, I was shocked to not see it listed. One of the best debut albums by any band. "Silhouettes in a window frame. Better run if it's Boo's old man. He won't know that you're white, oh, in the night."
23) James-"Sayonara" From the CD 'Wah-Wah'.
