Favourite song(s) on it? Still amazed how consistently great it is for a triple album.
Reno Dakota, I Don't Want To Get Over You and Book Of Love are always favourites.
Although I'm really fond of Stephin performing Papa Was A Rodeo live.
(Just for you.)
The ones I automatically go straight to are:
Papa was a rodeo
All My Little Words
Long Forgotten Fairytale
Busby Berkeley Dreams
The Night You Can’t Remember
I Don’t Want to Get Over You
Its much more fun discovering an overlook gem in it every once in a while. I never paid attention to Grand Canyon and now its one of my favourites, the same happened before with Yeah oh Yeah.
It's a 9 out of 10 as a triple album. At least an 11 out of 10 if you chose the best 13-15 songs on a single album.
The world would be a sadder place without the whole, great, sprawling, joyous mess of a thing though.
But yes, the entire album is golden. I listened to the entire set in one go last time I was on a plane. It made the journey pass so much quicker...
Yeah! Oh yeah!

Epitaph for my heart
Crazy for you (but not that crazy)
I have strong opinions about which are the good songs and which are the rubbish ones on 69 love songs. Basically most of the really twee, banjo led ones are a bit rubbish.
SO MANY GREAT ONES.
One of few albums i've only discovered relatively recently and has quickly become one of my favourites. Always puts a smile on my face.
the book of love !!!!!!!
So whenever I do, I can have that feeling that I have been an idiot for not listening to the best album ever for so long. I am listening to it now and getting that feeling again.
I wonder how many of the people on here who fawn over The National have not listened to this record? If you are one of these people then please listen to this album, right now.
