Favorite Matthew Good Song?

Recommended Posts

Obviously it's tough to pick just one, and this may change frequently, but what is your favorite song by Matthew Good?

 

There are about 10 songs that I feel are absolute masterpieces, but I'm going to go with "Empty's Theme Park". Gives me chills every time...

I've maintained Born to Kill for a while now. But it could change depending on what I feel like.

Such a hard one.

 

It's a toss up between "While We Were Hunting Rabbits", "Sort Of A Protest Song" or "The Boy Who Could Explode".

Gonna have to go with Sort of a Protest Song. Nice and simple with a great melody.

Since it's tattooed onto me, I'm going to have to go with Avalanche.

Avalanche is my 2nd favorite...

 

Love all of the other choices here too. Looks like "Sort of a Protest Song" and "Born To Kill" are getting the most support thus far. Both of those songs are also fantastic...

Advertising on Police Cars. But Running for Home and Strange Days are right there too. My wife's favorite (who's not on this site) is Sort of a Protest Song.

I often think of questions like this in this way: if it was all going to be lost, what one tune would you grab in the universal flood to save from the debris and hand on to whatever future lay ahead?

 

I love Non Populus, which breaks my heart...but in all the wreckage, I think I'd want to hand Double Life on to some survivor. It's so battered and so wrecked and somehow there's some sort of hope in there, in all the scars...which I know seems like what you'd say about every great Matt Good tune, but I feel it. And there's that question, "How come I feel so terrible, when terrible's in fashion?" There's a whole decade tangled up in that, you're dining on a whole period's failed way of life there...

 

I hope I don't sound like too much of dope, but that tune is heroin to me...

Matthew Good - House of Smoke and Mirrors

 

Matthew Good Band - Sort of a Protest Song

 

Both of those songs give me the chills each time I hear them. Great melodies and arrangement in both songs that are perfect for closing an album.

Used to be Fated; nowadays it reminds me too much of being depressed as a teenager. I think for now it's While We Were Hunting Rabbits and Folk Singer ("you might walk with dominance but you don't control me..." ; "...you will not be forgotten and this will not be forgotten" ...perfect.)

 

I love how many people love Sort of a Protest Song, though! It is a gorgeous song. It's been stuck in my head a lot for the past week.

I am going to try to top five this;

 

1)Sort of a Protest Song

2)A Single Explosion

3)What if I Can't See the Stars, Mildred?

4)The Fine Art of Falling Apart

5)Running for Home

 

The first 3 are easy. After that, I get impulsive and it's usually what comes to mind. I could easly throw Flight Recorder, 99%, LoES, Workers, Volcanoes, Explode, Prime Time, Giant, Suburbia and a few others into spots 4 or 5 and be totally happy with them there.
