I'll do this cuz it seems like a fun game Smile but I'm of the opinion that albums should stay the way they are, as the artist intended. Best Ofs are generally evil bastardizations Wink

1. Any Day Now
2. Fugitive Motel
3. Grounds for Divorce
4. Great Expectations
5. Some Riot
6. The Loneliness of a Tower Crane Driver
7. Mirrorball
8. Can't Stop
9. Switching Off
10. Bitten by the Tailfly
11. Newborn
12. Scattered Black and Whites

Yeah, I think that'd be pretty cool. Too many vital songs lost, though =| Original point - best ofs are evil.

Best Ofs are like the England Football team...getting all the best together doesn't necessarily result in harmony

Gotta be honest and give credit for the analogy to Frank Skinner, and it was the other way round when he said it.

Ooh i like this:
(First post by the way, hi Smile )

Station Approach
Red
Bones of You
Powder Blue
Bitten By the Tailfly
Switching Off
The Stops
Tower Crane Driver
Newborn
Great Expectations
Mirrorball
Scattered Black and Whites

Bah hard to do actually, so many lovely tracks left out. I think this is better than a typical best of, as they don't usually (as i've seen) give any thought to track order.

I was going to make a thread like this - but with the proviso you'd have to pick a track 1 (Any Day Now / Ribcage / Station Approach / Starlings) to be your first track, a track 2 for your second, and so on. Excluding bonus tracks (AITB! Oh no!) you get 11 lots of 4 songs to choose from... and as the example there shows, it sure ain't easy!

I'll get back to you with my choices Wink

Thanks, hi Smile Will do, i like your 2-sided vinyl idea, i might have to think up a concept album, i've been making elbow playlists for my friends lately to introduce them, and there's so much you can do it's fantastic. I like the idea of one that builds to a big multi-song climax in the middle and then trails off, i'll have to give it some thought Smile

Ooh, this ain't easy! but here goes:

4) Powder Blue
5) Switching Off
6) Weather To Fly
7) Newborn
8 The Everthere
9) Some Riot
10) Great Expectations

I tried to give all four LPs an even representation, but have obviously had to leave out some favourites. scratch

I'm gonne re-do mine, because I first did it when I had only just got into Elbow.

So, now I'm a weathered fan; here I go...

1) Ribcage
2) Bones Of You
3) Leaders Of The Free World
4) Mirrorball
5) An Imagined Affair
6) Coming Second
7) Fugitive Motel
8 ) Station Approach
9) The Loneliness Of A Tower Crane Driver
10) Great Expectations (Puncture Repair)
11)One Day Like This
12) Grace Under Pressure ... 2 minute gap ... - Friend Of Ours


Yeh I cheated a little bit. But I'm sorry Great Expectations and Puncture Repair were MADE to go together. and, loads of albums leave a gap at the end and have a hidden track.

I suppose that really its just my feeble attempt to try and cram in more songs; because i feel as though I've made this far to difficult with only 12 tracks.

I keep looking at what I've chose, and thinking that there's stuff I've missed. Ah well. *leave it now Leo, leave it!*




EDIT: If you do an 8 with a bracket infront of it you get a chap with sunglasses, so I've had to leave a gap Cool

You'll need way more than 12 songs, I'm thinking 20:

Any Day Now
Red*
Powder Blue
Asleep In The Back
Can't Stop or Coming Second
Ribcage*
Fugitive Motel*
Not A Job
Grace Under Pressure*
Station Approach*
Picky Bugger
Forget Myself
Leaders Of The Free World*
My Very Best
Great Expectations*
Starlings*
Bones Of You*
Mirrorball (the intro)*
Grounds For Divorce*
An Audience With The Pope
One Day Like This*
The Fix
Friend Of Ours

That's 23, those noted are the twelve who would be my picks.

For reference purposes, this was the iTunes Essentials "The Basics" Elbow playlist. (It's no longer available on iTunes for some reason.) I'll note after the list its essential problem:

  • Grounds for Divorce
  • One Day Like This
  • Newborn
  • Not a Job
  • Mirrorball
  • Red
  • Fallen Angel
  • Scattered Black and Whites
  • The Bones of You
  • Fugitive Motel
  • Switching Off
  • Grace Under Pressure


What's missing? Anything from Leaders of the Free World.

And, for kicks, this was the iTunes "Next Steps" compilation:

  • Asleep in the Back
  • Ribcage
  • Any Day Now
  • Powder Blue
  • Snowball
  • Loss
  • Some Riot
  • Coming Second
  • Starlings
  • Buttons and Zips
  • Snooks (Progress Report)
  • The Fix
  • I've Got Your Number
  • Red (Acoustic Version)


Again, no Leaders. *shrug*

I'll put my thinking cap on and distill a 12-track "Essentials" compilation. It can go with the B-sides compilation I sequenced a few months ago. Smile
