Need your help, guys! I post a playlist on my MySpace page, and I change it up regularly. I ususally do a theme (bands w/animals in their names; cover versions, etc.) and I am putting a new list together now which I am calling "Perfect Tens". Basically, any song which is as good as it gets. I always try to fit Elbow in and I would love your input on which song(s) to include. If there's no clear consensus I will add more than one. I know it's tough, but what would you consider the ultimate, perfect Elbow song?

Fugitive Motel

But I could add Newborn, Station Approach and One Day Like This all to easily.


I think you may get almost as many answers as there are members of this 'ere forum.

I say Great Expectations, without a doubt. Looks like we got some heavy diversity going on here. Very Happy

Newborn. Because it shows all sides of Elbow, the folksy soft side and the noisy side... Smile

Impossible again, I think it depends on my mood,
I actually really like My Very Best which no-one else has mentioned.

I agree with Fugitive Motel, Switching off, Newborn

Almost the whole of SSK too... Arggghhhhhhhhhh , they have loads of perfect songs.

'Kay, so we are basically all over the place with this one, although Newborn has pulled into the lead. I'll give it another day and see where we end up. Thanks for all the input though guys, or as we say here in South Florida, muchas grassyass! Smile

Aaah, lovely! I hadn't set this thread up as a poll to begin with because I didn't want to limit the choices, but now we've got some replies this works much better. Thanks MT! cheers

Those are probably the 'classics', eh Smile Too early for songs off the newy to be classics I reckon... but I have a feeling in 2 years time I'll be reverring the eternal greatness of Some Riot...

My favourite is 'Everthere', but I think I'm in a minority.

Hello, by the way.

(Worst first post ever.)

Voted for 'Great Expectations' in the end... don't know if it's my all-time favourite but I think it's the Elbowiest Elbow song there is, if that makes sense.

I can agree, even though I voted One Day Like This. Great expectations is my 2nd fave.

I think the line between 'perfect Elbow song' and 'your favourite Elbow song' has been blurred in this thread...

Mmmmm, looks like it. Oh well, at least now we can get a good medium between the Perfect and Favourite Elbow songs.

Well Newborn is one of my (many) personal favourites, but also IMO has everything anyone could ever wantt from an Elbow song and more. Wink
