North songs compete!

Postby Sour Milk Cow » Fri Sep 26, 2003 10:47 pm

Okay, it won't let me include ALL the songs, so I picked a few choice ones to see which ones people are leaning towards. I didn't include "Impatience" among them because it has an unfair advantage-- it is with the Imposters, and isn't really part of the "North" universe, so it would be a little like pitting "Beyond Belief" against songs on the Juliet Letters.

For the record, I'm still picking "I'm In The Mood Again" but others are quickly gaining on it.

I would have chosen Fallen if it were included....however, When it Sings beats Someone Took the Words Away.

Well neither of my top two (CAN YOU BE TRUE, FALLEN) is included, so I'm recusing myself...

Not many people are mentioning When Did I Stop Dreaming either, it's my current favourite.

Bamboo, I always chime in on the "...Did I stop Dreaming" line! :D

But I have to say, AS OF YET, my favorite is "When It Sings".

My only complaint is when he draws out the word "asks" I don't like singing along making that hard "sks" sound. Maybe I'm just weird. :?

I'm also really liking WDISD but since it's not on the list I picked When It Sings.

Well, I must say Still. Not because it's been the most highly publicized, but because I love the melody and the arrangement, and the lyrics. I'm just sorry it's such a short song. I love hearing the Brodskys and I wish the song was twice as long.

After Still, it would be Let Me Tell You About Her.

I went with "Still", though I think my favourite actually isn't up there... "You Turned To Me"

I go with You Turned To Me. For me, it's kind of a turning point in the album. Woke up with it in my head this morning and gave a listen. It's quite pretty, actually.

Ok, at the beginning of "You Left Me In the Dark" is it just me, or does that have a really similar orchestration like he did on "But Not For Me"?

I end up singing that song every time that song starts!!
