Pixies Track 7

Pixies Album Competition, take seven... or, rather, track 7: I'll list the track sevens off the Pixies initial EP and four subsequent albums. You are then offer the chance to rank 'em, or at least those with which you are comfortable. The Come On Pilgrim tracks are more optional than the others - the whole ranking thing being optional - as they won't count towards deciding The Official Favorite Pixies Album of Force Power Paintball and Other Diversions - for that bit only the relative rankings of songs from the four albums will be used. Feel free to rank other random media (or, you know, whatever) in your comments. Feel so free to include copious amounts of hilarious and scathing commentary.

Come On Pilgrim - I've Been Tired
Surfer Rosa - Where Is My Mind?
Doolittle - Monkey Gone To Heaven
Bossanova - All Over the World
Trompe Le Monde - Palace of the Brine

The COP track is the one you should think of when you want a soft verse/explosive chorus model. The SR track is one of their most well known. The D track - about environmentalism, evolution, both and/or more - is more brilliant than good. The B track is the longest Pixies song at nearly five and a half minutes but it still never blows up. The TLM track is 4 minutes shorter and about sea monkeys.


Please offer your rankings via the comments widget below or to my email - with Pixies in the subject - which is mountmccabe at gmail dot com.

Track 8 is more top heavy, track 7 here is more ridiculous throughout. I love all of these songs.
