Not favorite like Wil posted.
I tend to be able to separate on what i feel is the best song versus my favorite.

as an example, my favorite Beatles song is Hey Bulldog. But I know that's not their best song.


So, with that in mind, taking all the catalogue in play what do you feel is thier best song?
I have a few that I feel are in the top

HATS
Ambulance
Better Love
Golly Sandra

But I am torn between these two for the same reason.

Memories
Ten Cent Blues

I feel both show Sherri and Stacy's ability to play off each other and sing together. Plus they are amazing tunes.

What are your thoughts?

At first I was like, "Oh, it would be Pine's dumb luck to have his reply bumped to the next page of my thread..."

And then I read his post and the dread started to creep in. Competition in music, how I loathe it.

So many of us here are musicians to some degree, and all of us are fans, so what constitutes best is going to vary. What song showcases whichever aspects of their talent and craft we value the most? It's arbitrary, but people like arbitrary arguments. I used to love the VH1 show The List where this is exactly what they did on a nightly basis with celebrities.

Best Eisley song, as far as arrangement, musicianship, and vocal performances of all members of the band... I'm not going to give the too much thought, but it was going to be a limited pool of songs because not everyone sings on every song, even considering harmonies. So having narrowed the field severely that way, and wanting all instruments to be represented as well... I picked one that I think showcases the essence of their styles over the years melded together with their growth as writers and arrangers...
