PostSubject: Rank the songs on Handwritten   Sat Jul 28, 2012 4:07 pm

I remember the thread for ranking the songs on Elsie, so I thought we could do the same for Handwritten. Except for the first three, it was really hard to rank these songs because they're all so good, but this is what I came up with:

1. Too Much Blood
2. Handwritten
3. Mulholland Drive
4. Mae
5. Blue Dahlia
6. Here Comes My Man
7. Desire
8. Biloxi Parish
9. 45
10. Keepsake
11. Teenage Rebellion
12. National Anthem
13. Howl

1. Blue Dahlia
2. Howl
3. Too Much Blood
4. 45
5. Desire
6. Handwritten
7. Biloxi Parish
8. National Anthem
9. Mae
10. Mulholland Drive
11. Keepsake
12. Here Comes My Man

Everything past the top 3 are in somewhat random order. I don't really have a "connection" with the large majority of the songs (yet?).

dashed lines are where definitive lines exist in song quality (so Blue Dahlia and Howl are easily the best, white Handwritten and Too Much Blood are the worst). With each bracket order is rougher...

Blue Dahlia
Howl
-----------
Mae
45
Biloxi
----------
National Anthem
Desire
Keepsake
Here Comes My Man
----------
Handwritten
Too Much Blood

You missed a song. You only have 11 songs on there. What about Mulholland Drive?

Whoops. Goes either in the last or second to last bucket. Or maybe its own bucket inbetween. Not annoying as Handwritten or Too Much Blood, but still rather boring in the chorus (Seriously Brian, you can do better than "I'd just die if you ever took your love away") and overall the fact that I forgot it probably means its the most forgettable song on the album Razz

Thank you! I think we might be the only two people on this board completely underwhelmed by Mulholland Drive. The way people talk, I was starting to think someone at Mercury was playing a joke and burned a b-side onto my CD where Mulholland Drive should've been.

its not *that* bad, its just far too generic for my likes. From those lyrics alone I don't think anyone could honestly call Brian the best song writer of this generation.

Gonna do it in tiers because it's hard to tell with a few.

Mae (one of my favorite TGA songs of all time)

----

Howl
Biloxi Parish
Blue Dahlia
---
National Anthem
Mulholland Drive
Handwritten
45
---
Keepsake
Too Much Blood
Here Comes My Man
Desire

But I really like every single song. Desire is the only one I'm not in love with.

I kept switching around the last 4 because I'm like "no that song cant be last I love it!" but i give up. The whole thing is amazing! Desire and Howl have been climbing the list for me.

I'm surprised National Anthem is so low down on some of these lists, I think it's beautiful


and Here Comes My Man too, its just so powerful, maybe the girls appreciate it more on here than guys do

2. Too Much Blood
3. Here Comes My Man
4. Handwritten
5. Mae
6. Blue Dahlia
7. 45
8. Howl
9. Desire
