Oh, so difficult. But I like A better - I think The Triffids swung it.

i'm no great fan of belly, stereolab or talk talk - how can they possibly compete with the iseley brothers?

Yesiree, it's A all the way. All the choices were good (in fact most were contenders for my own list), but these stood out for whatever reason

Tell Me Momma - Bob Dylan
The "electric" set of Dylan Live 1966 has its own kind of comedy and dark, agressive (almost Brechtian) theatre, but the funniest (and most theatrical) moment comes early on, as Bob shifts the syntax of the song to his will: "but I know that you know that I know that you showed me something...", and by then the audience is lost, though the menacing, barracking guitar playing of the Hawks takes it out of reach. Astonishing, a joke gone too far. +5

Wide Open Road - The Triffids

The sheer vastness of this track makes it a perfect companion to the Go-Betweens' "Cattle & Cane". And you can't get much higher praise than that. +4
How Can You Mend a Broken Heart? - Al Green

Al Green turns the song inside out, if his heart's truly broken, the voice will mend it. A perfect example of his control, the ability to make the words flow like golden silk. Sumptuous, gorgeous, pained, the thesaurus gets a workover here, and by the end your heart will be on the mend, too. +5

This Boy - The Beatles

Cheeky B-side from when the Beatles were cheeky +3
Night Time - Big Star

Sister Lovers, the darkly melodic crash of an album, is as much a document of narcissim as it is a documentation of a breakdown- the band's and Chilton. But it's the devestating "I hate it here" that sticks with you, what was hinted at made abundantly clear. Stark +4

It's before my time but I've been told, he never came back from Karangahape Road.

Even though This Boy is nothing but a prototype for Yes It Is.

Yes it is, it's true.

Yorkston, Sufjan and REM are counters.

I could never vote against the Isleys, Al Green and Sam Cooke on the same list.

A, though surely there are a dozen better Four Tops songs to have chosen.

Have to admit that both are a bit esoteric.

I love the Aimee Mann song - the decider for me.
