0054.

I wish I could get my head out of the sand
'cause i think we'd make a good team
and you would keep my fingernails clean
But thats just a stupid dream that i won't realize
'cause I can't even look in your eyes
without shakin'--and I ain't fakin'
I'll bring home the turkey if you bring home the bacon.

The other day I got asked the dreaded question of what my favorite band is.  It really shouldn't be that hard of a question, but it really is; however, I'm one of those people who could also never pick a favorite animal.  Maybe I'm just indecisive about things like this.  It's hard though becuase You favorite band/book/album really does say a lot about you and you don't want to mis-advertise yourself.  I also want people to know things about me: personality, traits, dislikes..... so on, because they have taken the time to get to know me, not because they can spout off things I've told them about myself.
There are also so many bands that mean so much to me and I don't want to forget one of over look them and their contributions to me.  Even so, there are a few bands that will always hold an esteemed place in my heart.  Bright Eyes, Weezer, and Modest Mouse.  But thats just a drop in the bucket.  So many bands and songs remind me of my friends back home, my friends in Idaho, my friends on missions, my friends who aren't my friends anymore, my sister, my parents, my pets, good times, bad times, people I wan't to forget, and people i can't forget.  And this is just secular music...

I could tell people my favorite songs--maybe.  But bands, i don't know why but it's completely different.  And even if it was songs I would need at least ten slots.  and the bottom three would probably rotate.

1  El Scorcho
2 The First Day of My Life
3 The Remedy
4 The World at Large
5 From a Balance Beam
6 Waste of Paint
7 Take it Easy, Love Nothing
8 Chain me Free
9 Katie Come True
10 Alien Christ

I think I can be fairly confident of my answer of Bright Eyes though.

If someone were to ask me what I thought your favorite bands are, I would say those three.
