Grtst Hitz

usually if i like a band i just want to get their albums and not so much a "greatest hits" collection though that's sometimes how it all starts....still, the tracklisting on the Pavement greatest hits album Quarantine the Past: the Best of Pavement looks amazing, i want to listen to it right now!
gives me a nice blueprint to create my own Pavement best-of from the records...

Those are great choices...surprising to see the "left-field" choice of "Unseen Power...." I'm lukewarm on REM but I love that song.

agreed on "Stop Breathing" but seriously that whole album could go on there.

i'm torn on this one, Mac.

i'm very excited about their reunion shows. though their final tour of "Terror Twilight" was lackluster, uninspired, and boring (sadly). i saw them at the SF Fillmore, and it was one of the sorriest shows i've ever seen, and I had been a Pavement fan since 1991.

however, when i heard a few months ago about this 'greatest' collection, i made my own ideal P'ment collection:

01. Circa 1762
02. Texas Never Whispers
03. Frontwards
04. AT&T
05. Zurich is Stained
06. Summer Babe (Winter Version)
07. Trigger Cut/Wounded Kite at :17
08. Grounded
09. Loretta's Scars
10. Box Elder (Live)
11. Baptist Blacktick
12. Two States
13. Here
14. In the Mouth a Desert
15. Shoot the Singer (1 Sick Verse)
16. Serpentine Pad
17. Perfume-V
18. Fight this Generation
19. Fame Throwa
20. Our Singer
21. Secret Knowledge of Backroads
22. Lions (Linden)
23. Kennel District
24. Major Leagues

Always loved pavement. The extended rereleases have some delicious bits on. I wouldn't usually buy an album twice like that but there are a few bands that can wheedle it out of me.
