Mine would be Fucker.
...with Climbing to the Moon a very close second
daisies of the galaxy
But the part where he sings
"I just want to stand outside
And know that this is right
And this is true and I will not
Fade into, fade into the night"
is definitely my favourite bit of an Eels song. Totally heartfelt.
this all the way
one of the most haunting pieces of music ever recorded.
could probably say most of Electro Shock Blues/Daisies of the Galaxy, but I'd go with It's A Motherfucker.
Might be Railroad Man. Or one of four others.
I'm retracting my choice actually. Not choosing.
I'm going to make you an 18 track mix CD and only use that song.
*today that is, tomorrow it may well change.
at least for the next few minutes!
THERE I SAID IT.
closely followed by Fucker. good shout.
It's when someone asks a question like this that I realise Eels might just be my favourite band.
If I go by most-listened - it's probably Fashion Awards. Shootenanny! is such an underrated album.
Or Climbing to the Moon. ARGH both so amazing. There's so much good stuff out there of his though
Ugly Love round at Susan's House
Probably. Arg! Selective Memory is amazing as well. And Mr E's Beautiful Blues. But then, I do really like The Other Shoe. There's loads of possible answers for this one.
Pt. 2 in particular
PS you rock my world
Old sh*t / new sh*t
Rock Hard Times
and the winnner is .................
PS you rock my world
.... never fails to lift me up
So I'll go with the most played Eels track on my iTunes/Last.fm...
...which is Fresh Feeling
it's such a sad song, but just so moving. Love it.
Although there are a few contenders from Electro-Shock: Last Stop: This Town is such a great song. Climbing To The Moon is lovely, and PS You Rock My World is such a perfect uplifting way to end the album.
Definitely lots of great Eels songs though.
but then i listened to beautiful freak and it didn't do much for me. which other albums should i get on to?
and despite really liking some of the songs, it's not one I ever go back to.
I'd recommend Daisies Of The Galaxy and Souljacker (the two albums after Electro-Shock Blues), and also probably Blinking Lights.
Eels albums are often sold at bargainous prices on amazon or play, or in Fopp too, so look out for the cheapness.
Blinking Lights and Other Revelations next. But I think they're all great and all worth a try if nothing else.
in particular the version they did on Jools Holland a few years ago that ditched the drumbeat used on the album. One of the best live performances I've ever seen.
Fresh Feeling, Jungle Telegraph, then Novocaine, then Mr E's BB.
