This is pretty cool... Ben Swank shared his favorite Dead Weather songs with CoS/RIOB, and it's a video so you don't have to read lol:

Can somebody actually list out the top 10?  I'll watch the video at some point but right now I am not in an environment where I can play a video.

Swank's top 10:

 

10. Jawbreaker

9. Die by the Drop

8. Cut Like a Buffalo

7. Treat Me Like Your Mother

6. No Horse

5. Forever My Queen

4. Hustle and Cuss

3. Blue Blood Blues

2. 60 Feet Tall

1. Open Up (That's Enough)

 

Can't say I agree with most of it but Swank's explanations are cool. Cheeky of him to put the new heretofore unheard song at the top :P

Speaking of (supposedly) heretofore unheard songs, how many DW (or even non-DW) fans out there believe that I Feel Strange should be on that list?

 

*raiseshand* 

 

One of the best things that band ever did and Jack didn't see fit to give it to everyone. That still bugs the bejeebus out of me.  Jack shame.

Hang you and Rolling in a burning tire (or something like this) are two best things they had done, dont know how 16 saltines would go to top1, must be marketing wizardry :D

 

also no mention from Ben about Old Mary, and Will there be enough water (studio version, not live soup opera), or outside (actually their best cover work)

this guy is tasteless

 

yep, I've been drinking

My top 10 in entirely random order would be

 

I Feel Strange

3 Birds

I Cut Like a Buffalo

Rocking Horse

Treat Me Like Your Mother

I Just Want to Make Love to You

You Just Can't Win

Child of a Few Hours

Old Mary

either Blue Blood Blues or WTBEW, depending on what mood I'm in

It seems a premature to generate a top 10 list with 2 LPs and some singles in the studio catalogue.

 

I get the timing though.  :)
