Top Ten Albums

\t\t10) Lincoln – They Might Be Giants\t\t

Ana Ng and I are growing old
\t\t\tAnd we still haven’t walked in the glow of each other’s majestic presence
\t\t\tListen, Ana, hear my words
\t\t\tThey’re the words you would think I would say
\t\t\tIf there was a me for you
\t\t\t”Ana Ng”

\t\t9) Muswell Hillbillies – The Kinks\t\t

You keep all your smart modern writers
\t\t\tGive me William Shakespeare
\t\t\tYou keep all your smart modern painters
\t\t\tI’ll take Rembrandt, Titian, Da Vinci, and Gainsborough
\t\t\t”20th Century Man”

\t\t8) Grind – Jawbone Hill\t\t

Hey, baby, look to the seasons
\t\t\tHey, baby, feel them one by one
\t\t\tHey, baby, shout to the rainbow
\t\t\tTell the Artist about His beautiful light
\t\t\t”Sun, Moon, and Angels”

\t\t7) The Burn Service – Vineyard Music Group\t\t

You are the fountain of my life
\t\t\tAnd in Your light I find my reason
\t\t\t’Cause Your love reaches to the stars
\t\t\tEven the great deep
\t\t\tAnd Your love reaches to this heart
\t\t\tAnd it makes me sing
\t\t\t”Your Love Reaches Me”

\t\t6) Utopia Parkway – Fountains of Wayne\t\t

When you think you’ve found something worth holding onto
\t\t\tReaching for attention, hoping she would notice
\t\t\tYou collecting bottles and thrown away cans
\t\t\tLike she was returnable, one day would refill your hands
\t\t\tHow she loved you, all you imagined
\t\t\tFit so well into your plans
\t\t\t”Troubled Times”

\t\t5) Resigned – Michael Penn\t\t

What once I took as remedies were only chalk hypotheses
\t\t\t’Tis the season for a breeze to blow them all away
\t\t\tTo add insult to injury, the sum you gets means I agree
\t\t\tSo you can call that empathy and find someone else to blame
\t\t\t”All That That Implies”

\t\t4) Ben Folds Live – Ben Folds\t\t

I pushed you ’cause I loved you guys
\t\t\tI didn’t realize you weren’t having fun
\t\t\tAnd I dragged you up the stairs and told you to fly
\t\t\tFlapping your arms, you started to cry you were too high

\t\t3) Much Afraid – Jars of Clay\t\t

Fare thee well
\t\t\tWe’re trading all our words for tea and sympathy
\t\t\tWonder why we try for things that could never be
\t\t\tPlay our heart’s lament like an unrehearsed symphony
\t\t\t”Tea and Sympathy”

\t\t2) Pinkerton – Weezer\t\t

Yesterday I went outside
\t\t\tWith my mama’s mason jar
\t\t\tCaught a lovely butterfly
\t\t\tWhen I woke up today
\t\t\tLooked in on my fairy pet
\t\t\tShe had withered all away

\t\t1) Gordon – Barenaked Ladies\t\t

Drove downtown in the rain
\t\t\tNine thirty on a Tuesday night
\t\t\tJust to check out the late night record shop
\t\t\t”Brian Wilson”
