    Since the ranking albums in a discography and ranking songs on an album are blowing up so much, I want to kinda combine the two.
    What are your top ten(at least, feel free to do more) songs of any artist?

    Come on now! You started this thread - give us your top 10 of someone..... We seem to have similar taste in music, so I'm curious.

    I meant to earlier, but then work got busy and I forgot. Since I did Animal Collective over at the rank discographies, I'll continue with them here.

    1. What Would I Want, Sky? (If you're new to them stick with the song, first half is drone, second is beautiful psychedelic pop)
    2. Banshee Beat
    3. Winters Love
    4. Brothersport
    5. Fireworks
    6. My Girls
    7. Kids on Holiday
    8. Purple Bottle (Stevie Wonder version if you can find it)
    9. We Tigers
    10. Who Could Win a Rabbit

    I feel like I'm leaving so much great music off this list

    Great list! I wholeheartedly agree with #1.

    And I felt the same way when doing my SK list. It felt weird to leave off Dig Me Out and Words and Guitar and Modern Girl and..... I'll stop.

    I love that you included Novelty. That's a song that has really grown on me the last few years. But no Atmosphere?

    I'd have Voodoo Chile higher, but other than that this is a great list. Voodoo has been one of my favorite songs since I was a child

    My top ten would be completely different (except for a few), and yet I think all ten of the songs you listed are great.
