As a non-B+S fan, I think "Get Me Away From Here, I'm Dying", is the only song of theirs I recognize - though I didn't know it was them for years, I just thought, "Not that annoying song again", so it's possible I might recognize other songs. I've tried listening to quite a lot of the tracks in this poll and, no, it's still not working for me. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I'm surprised Legal Man, with 12 voters, didn't have the oomph to push it past the haters.

bros before HOOS (voodoo chili), Monday, 17 December 2018 17:09 (eight months ago) link

Re "Mayfly," I love the line "I don't mind the sight of you" so much -- the way he takes a standard phrase ("I can't stand the sight of you") and then reasons, what would be the mild, Belle and Sebastian version of this?

Guayaquil (eephus!), Monday, 17 December 2018 17:12 (eight months ago) link

Was surprised to see that 9 other people voted for "I Love My Car", but cheers to you all:
"I love my Carl / I love my Brian my Dennis and my Al / I could even find it in my head to love Mike Love"

enochroot, Monday, 17 December 2018 17:24 (eight months ago) link

Looks like my poll entries that didn't place are mostly from Storytelling:
6. Big John Shaft
20. Marx and Engels
24. Fuck This Shit
25. Mornington Crescent
29. Scooby Driver
30. I Love My Car

Incidentally, I was the only person to vote for this song, which tells me that most people probably haven't heard it.

enochroot, Monday, 17 December 2018 17:28 (eight months ago) link

Fuck This Shit just missed my top 30, it is lovely though

also i'm glad this delightful song often singled out as the worst dcw track got two votes

jolene club remix (BradNelson), Monday, 17 December 2018 17:38 (eight months ago) link

"Marx & Engles" was my #2, and "I Love My Car" my #12. I probably listen to the I'm Waking Up to Us EP more than anything else by this band.

L'assie (Euler), Monday, 17 December 2018 17:50 (eight months ago) link

Thanks for this poll. It was nearly 20 years ago upon first hearing "The Stars of Track and Field" that immediately knew I had a new favorite band.

Timothée Charalambides (cryptosicko), Monday, 17 December 2018 19:04 (eight months ago) link

this seems like damning with faint praise, but I really love how Mayfly ties the sequencing together of IYFS. I don't think you can overlook it's pop value in an album that could have come across as fairly bitter. I suppose one of the downsides of a tracks poll is that somewhat slight songs don't hold up that well in the sunlight, but it's hard for me to imagine that album without it.

it's kind of a perfect album track tbh, it pulls you right out of the sadder and more expansive mood of the title track and you don't really notice it happening

The part of "Mayfly" is when the drums switch to double time, all the way through to "you know it's a crying shame" is ace.

the salacious inaudible (Nasty, Brutish & Short), Monday, 17 December 2018 22:32 (eight months ago) link

The Cat with the Cream is underrated, as are Lord Anthony and Belle & Sebastian, I think

Dan S, Monday, 17 December 2018 22:35 (eight months ago) link

OTM.

And I totally share #TeamYouMadeMeForgetMyDreams's sorrow.

But the biggest shock for me remains the utter unpopularity of "Boy Done Wrong Again". Didn't vote for it, but hadn't anticipated a conspicuously (near-)empty row in a spreadsheet, something that was overwise reserved for the likes of "A Space Boy Dream".

Nag! Nag! Nag!, Monday, 17 December 2018 23:01 (eight months ago) link

I was thinking of including “Today” on the ballot I didn’t submit, relistening I think it’s great. “Ever Had a Little Faith” is fantastic too. Sure is a long album though.

JoeStork, Monday, 17 December 2018 23:22 (eight months ago) link

One more stat and then I'll shut up. I was vaguely alluding to it a couple of days ago, but couldn't really reveal it.

The conventional studio albums ranked by the sum of their constituent track scores. IYFS's dominance is even scarier here:

I’ve been thinking about why Lord Anthony stands out for me

I wasn’t bullied too much in high school, although I can remember being imprinted with the shame and fear of it. I also remember looking on and not stepping in as other kids were savagely harassed, and it’s been in the back of my mind since

it’s amazing to me that their music can so easily convey childhood feelings like this song does

Great poll! I didn't have time to listen to everything to prepare for voting but my main takeaway is I need to listen to FYHC, which I foolishly skipped. Also it's hard to believe that just three weeks ago I had never heard "The State I Am In". Instant classic from the first listen, I probably put it on a dozen times in that time. It's a little strange to rank it over songs I've loved for 15 years but it's just that good

also Belle & Sebastian wasn’t the first song of theirs I heard but it felt like it explained them somehow, as a central diorama of their world

Voted Belle & Sebastian track

I think if Pocketbook Angel wasn't a rough demo it would be looked on as fondly as Photo Jenny.. maybe not String Bean Jean. Those 3 are very similar in a way.
