The Top Ten Albums of the Last Decade - #9

9. Spoon - Girls Can Tell
How can you beat memories of listening to this cd on the way to GPF shows with a carfull of musicians and a trunk full of instruments? Running through fields of flowers while listening to walking on sunshine? No. Ice skating to Ice Ice, Baby? Absolutely not. The truth is GPF would probably have been arguing about setlists the whole way to their shows if it wasn't for this cd. They probably would have broken up after only a few shows, so Kyle could join The Broken Toys or something, and the world would be a darker place without hits like Young Grasshopper. The truth is spoon has more consistent and rocking pop songs than almost any band this decade and this record showcases them at their finest. It is pretty impossible to still be in a bad mood after listening to this record in its entirety.

  1. I don't have the killer GPF memories to associate with this album. However, I do remember driving around listening to Spoon when I lived in Clemson. Me and the Bean is an incredible song. There's something about that song that stirs up a longing in me.
