the world series of i-pod war!

ryan over at muzzle of bees (www.muzzleofbees.com) and i got into a little challenge over i-pod war. see my post below (war on war, i'm too lazy to provide a link) to see who you think won the first round. at ryan's request, this is going to be a best of three series. here is my submission for round two:

#1: rilo kiley- "the good that won't come out"
#2: neutral milk hotel- "where you can find me now"
#3: jaymay- "letter"
#4: velvet underground- "european son"
#5: neutral milk hotel- "naomi"
#6: broken social scene- "superconnected"
#7: belle & sebastian- "the stars of track and field"
#8: pj harvey- "no child of mine"
#9: flake music- "the shins"
#10: beulah- "my side of the city (demo tour ep version)"

tiebreaker: the decemberists- "california one, youth and beauty"

wow. i couldn't make up a better list even if i tried. i do have to say that i would have rather my number #3 be "color confused" instead of "letter", because the former is one of the most beautiful songs i've ever heard. my playlist's favorite velvet underground song is "femme fatale", it kinda let me down this time. but two neutral milk hotel songs, a brand new broken social scene song (even though i'm not really into them), an acoustic demo of a beulah song, the opening track from rilo kiley AND belle & sebastian's best albums, AND the song that spawned one of everyone's favorite bands? wow. this playlist is the best one i've seen in the heavily circulated blog rounds of i-pod war, if i could be modest for a second..

oh, and my tiebreaker? i was hoping for colin meloy's solo performance of "shankhill butchers", a brand new song, that he debuted at the woodlin park zoo. that would have been the nail in the coffin. however, any decemberists song makes for a great tie breaker. good luck, ryan.
