Favorite song?

 
  • tough question. impossible question, actually.

    let's try this: if i had to make a "greatest hits" of the Animal Collective, only 12 songs, this is what I'd put on it.
    Baby Day
    Leaf House
    April and the Phantom
    Hey Light
    Who Could Win a Rabbit?
    Did You See the Words?
    Winters Love
    Grass
    The Purple Bottle
    Doggy
    Kids on Holiday
    We Tigers

    I know I'm leaning hard on the last two albums, but to be fair, most of the other albums function more as Albums with a capital A.

  • i'm a bit new to animal collective but love love - purple bottle and grass.
    when i first heard them i was like what on earth is this but its really addictive after a few listens

  • i know! they are very... organic, and i love it.

  • delectabiliteeeeeee in music form!

    my favorites are...

    the purple bottle
    banshee beat
    we tigers
    did you see the words?
    college

    i wish i had a sphere of animal collective playing around me at all times...
    i went to the concert in minneapolis in march, did anyone else?
    twas shpadoinkle!

  • There is something about Winter's Love...

    But Who Could Win a Rabbit? gets stuck in my head.

    The title track on Prospective Hummer too...

  • Everytime I try to think of one as my fave, I think of all the other songs I'm missing. And then the list gets too long to be able to put in a 'favorite' thread.

    I'm not suprised that the majority of favorites seem to be off of Feels and Sung Tongs, but there is some really great stuff off of their other releases too, especially the spontaneity of their live material. If you get the chance try and grab a copy of their vinyl-only live release called Hollinndagain.

    I enjoy Doggy, Ahhh Good Country, Bat You'll Fly, Sweet Road, (becuase it is the most up-lifting song I can think of) and anything from Prospect Hummer.

  • Now that I think harder, I'd say

    April and the Phantom
    Sweet Road
    Banshee Beat
    Did You See The Words

    In that order

  • Purple Bottle I think. The chorus is so God dman beautiful. Can't even take it. I still resent my friends for not liking Animal Collective as much as I do.

    Purple Bottle :)

    Two Dogs, two cats, a big kitchen and a welcome mat
  • that's a hard descision, cause it changes depending on my mood
    probably, in no particular order...
    We Tigers,
    Winter's Love,
    Fickle Cycle,
    Slippi,
    Grass,
    Purple Bottle,
    if i keep going i'll probably end up naming them all

    fickle cycle
    leaf house
    banshee beat

  • there's too many to choose from and my favourite changes all the time. currently i would say it would be "purple bottle" because it almost feels like an entire album squeezed into one track.

  • Spirit They've Vanished
    Purple Bottle
    We Tigers
    April and the Phantom

    banshee beat
    did you see the words?
    who could win a rabbit
    prospect hummer
    winter's love

    Not necessarily in that order. "Spirit They're Gone.." is probably my favorite. I started off with "Feels", so it's not like i've been listening to them forever.

    yay!

  • Winter's Love and Who Could Win a Rabbit, and let's throw sweet road in there because it's so pleasant.

    I was thinking about turquoise, I was thinking about gold; I was thinking about diamonds, and the world's biggest necklace. As we rode through the canyons -- through the devilish cold -- I was thinking about Isis, how she thought I was so reckless.
