Top 5 Pavement Tunes: Favement, if you will.

Karls constant texts today explaining which Pavement tune he is currently listening to inspired me to make a Top 5 list, mainly because I went on about how Perfect Depth is in my top 5.
1: GROUNDED [Wowee Zowee] - This song can be enjoyed both on your first beer of the night to get you right jackt, as well as your 30th beer while you are passing out on a couch. Same effect. Same emotions. Tears of pure joy.

2: STARLINGS OF THE SLIPSTREAM [Brighten The Corners] - The best song off of the best album. AAAA OOoooooooooooooooo. Darlings on the split screen aaaa aoooooooooooo.

3: STOP BREATHIN [Crooked Rain Crooked Rain] - The heaviest Pavement song I know. Once it kicks in near the end I usually bang on my gear shifter in my car kicking it into neutral causing a panic and almost running off the road. Happens every single time.

4: TEXAS NEVER WHISPERS [Watery, Domestic] - The worlds greatest EP ever made. This song starts it all off. Need I say more?

5: PERFECT DEPTH [Westing] - This tune still reminds me of cold winters on the city bus to Grade 12 High School. Made going to school bearable. Also reminds me of playing Sonic the Hedgehog for hours and hours. Weird.

5: PERFUME-V [Slanted and Enchanted] - One of the first Pavement songs I fell in love with. That feeling has never left. Tied for 5th place with Perfect Depth.

    And, hey, all that "Here" talk and it doesn't make your top 12?
