My favorite changes constantly, but if I had to choose one right now, it would be The Backseat.

RIght now though I'm also very much into Wherefore... and I'da Called...

Great Expectations. The lyrics are masterful really hit me, and the music is perfect.

Runners up: Here's Lookin At You, Kid, Senor and the Queen, Blue Jeans.

Here's Lookin At You actually I've decided is the lyrical winner of them all...the storytelling is just phenomenal. It deserves an award.

"High Lonesome" is definitely my favorite song, at least right now. It just sounds so sincere when Brian says "I always kinda sorta wish I was someone else". Something I can totally relate to, not in a depressing way, but in a way where you recognize your shortcomings and wish that you could be a better person.

Also, "Blue Jeans & White T-Shirts" just really moves me, especially the live version from "Live At Park Ave."

I saw tGA for the first time last month at Antone's in Austin, TX, and the last song they played before the encore was "The Backseat", which gave me goosebumps, even though previously I wasn't really into that song. Brian changed the lyrics to "Rode a fever out of Austin (instead of Boston), Dreamed of California Nights". Man, that was an awesome show.

My god I just checked my Play Count on itunes, every single TGA song is 104+ (mostly played is Casanova, Baby! and thats at 183)
I'd agree with Casanova, Baby! as being my favorite, the chorus is absolutely awesome.
The line "Forget this dead mans town" completely relates to me, I live in a very dead town, nothing happens here, no bands play here, no one likes to go outside and just hang out. I'm the kinda guy that likes to go outside just for the sake of going outside, I don't need a reason, I can go outside and just sit at the little bridge on Pacific and 'R' and chill with a couple friends, but most of my friends around here HAVE to have something to do or they wont leave there house and it irks the crap outta me. Thought I'd share that just so you can see why this song relates to me haha.

From Sink or Swim, Angry Johnny live is an amazing song especially the interlude with soul songs and then the party afterwards. We Came To Dance and Woody Joe are also great live songs and absolute favorites of mine.

I miss when they played Divorce, I got to see it once live and that was a lot of fun. It was at the Lanes so that song means a little more to me.

From Seņor and the Queen my two favorites are Elvis and Blue Jeans & White T-Shirts. I love the chorus to Elvis. Every line in Blue Jeans means something to me. It means even more when I'm out west at school, gives me a little piece of the East Coast.

From The '59 Sound, Casanova, Baby, Great Expectations are amazing right off the CD, but live I love Meet Me By The River's Edge and Backseats. Whenever I sing the song now I sing "We rode the fever out of Boston, dreamed of Colorado nights," since I go to school in Colorado and almost did in Boston. I kinda wanna get No Retreat, No Regrets tattooed on me somewhere. That'd be cool.

You're right Steph, Austin is the original lyric. The website I was looking at must've had it wrong. I guess I just figured "Boston" since they're from the east coast... I dunno.

That's cool, I guess. I feel like a horses patoot.

haha...the only reason i said that is i thought i remembered specifically looking at the lyrics, because i thought it said "boston," and realized i was wrong...it sounds like he says boston...and sometimes i still sing it that way, just cause thats the way i sung it for so long, haha.

God knows how many times i've played each song, must be reaching record level amounts, well well over 100+ times each song, since May last year i've hardly listened to anyone else bar the odd fling.

Faveourite song, I have no idea, live without a doubt is Say I Don't or great expectations.

Blue Jeans, Great Expectation and Patient Ferris wheel album wise.

Hmm...I think we could all add a different one each day depending how we feel!Sometimes a slow one...sometimes a heavy one. Today's was Drive....sang it really loudly on my cycle home from work! Last week's was Senor and the Queen. Old White Lincoln will always be special as it's the first song I heard by TGA.
