Forgot to vote didn’t I, paralysed by indecision. Should have just gone with my gut and given all 10 points to Grounded.

Still got a few minutes left

Harder than usual to predict what’s going to come out on top here. I saw this list after voting and they’re all great, but I didn’t vote for any of them:

What a list of fucking tracks like

Baptiss and Bayou were mine here - Baptiss is my fav of the scrappy early noisy stuff, and Bayou is their most overlooked track from the extended editions. Love the big chorus riff and the falsetto vocal

THAT SAD SUCK-OFF LEFT ME IN DAMASCUS

Perfume-V sneaks into my top 3 off Slanted on the right day also

Perfume-V was the final cut from my list to get it down to 10 points. Love how many ideas they cram into two minutes of lo-fi fizzy guitar noise and somehow make it all into a catchy, coherent song.

Unfair for ‘Unfair’.

Unfair is such a good song that’s understandably got lost in the shuffle because Pavement have so many great songs.

That was my vote! There’s no way such a noisy intro should blossom into such a great verse and beautiful chorus.

I’ve done a playlist of all these by the way, obviously I won’t post it till the end but I wanted to get more into Pavement and it’s worked.
