I wasn't really huge on Blue Veins until I saw it played live. I guess it just took witnessing it in person to realize the potential of the song. I'm still not sure if I would put it in my top five just yet, but it is definitely inching its way to there.

I am totally in love with Broken Boy Soldier after this weekend. It's going to be my entire Top 5 for a while, I think.


it was definitely my theme song all day as i painted up on the scaffolding and thus avoided getting down to put a new disc in

Last night I visited the TMR website and re-watched the videos for Steady as She Goes and Hands....gotta love BB Bumpkin! But I think the video for Hands is really something special; it might have actually pushed that song into my top 5.

i was listening to Many Shades of Black yesterday and got to thinking about how much horns orchestration is in that song... i would like to hear that song arranged a different way just to see what it would sound like in a non-Blood Sweat and Tears style

Every time I think I can choose my favourite Raconteur songs...I cant because my top songs from them always change. But for now Ive been really into Carolina Drama, You don't Understand Me, and Freedom at 21 lately. I guess it all depends on the zone that I'm in.

@ Wewil - I've always imagined Five on the Five live in concert. I love that you said that!
