"Think I'm scared of girls, well maybe" reminds me of Dinosaur Jr. He has a Mascis drawl for a second.
Aren't there any girls out their who like good music? I need to and want to meet them. My favorite bands are Overkill River, The Nife, Songs:Ohio, and Nuetral Milk Hotel. Please let me know if your into indy music and like to go to show's and drink beer's and makeout.

hey, remember when we were talking about our favorite Whigs songs and I mentioned "Now You Know" and you said it was your least favorite song on the album and I wondered "huh, why does Paves dislike this awesome song" Yeah, I actually meant "My Curse".

Awesome bit of clarification.

Yeah, I definitely don't dislike "My Curse" at all. I was actually just playing that on this here acoustic guitar a few minutes ago. That and "I Keep Coming Back" [POST EDIT: I MEANT TO SAY "WHEN WE TWO PARTED"!!!!! "I KEEP COMING BACK" IS ALSO AMAZING, THOUGH] are probably my favorite songs on Gentlemen.

The best part of "Now You Know" is the last two seconds. The "NOW IT'S THROUGH" part.

yeah, those are probably the three best songs on the album. "What Jail is Like" is great too (even though I significantly doubt whatever Dulli was going through when he wrote the song accurately reflects the feeling of lawful imprisonment) and "Brother Woodrow" / "Closing Prayer" is severely underrated.

Oddly enough, "Brother Woodrow/Closing Prayer" was actually the song that made the biggest impression on me the first time I listened to the album. Beautiful little instrumental right there. I enjoy the sounds of a mellotron, as well as those of a cello, in addition to the guitar playing of one Mr. Greg Dulli. A combination of all three is just delightful beyond belief.

I agree, it's an amazing instrumental. And also the song that kept me listening to this album (Dulli took awhile to get used to) until the rest of it seeped into my subconscience.

My Curse is a perpetual favorite, but Fountain and Fairfax is just phenomenal. Aw hell, I can't find a weak spot on the whole damn album.

This was probably the first album I could play back note-for-note, lyric-for-lyric in my head. Freakin' haunts me sometimes.

But, I definitely have to be in the mood to listen to the whole thing. If I were to introduce a newbie to the Whigs, I'd probably hand 'em Black Love first.
