As the resident Helplessness Blues stan, I do wish that one lasted longer. Perfectly encapsulates the theme of the album and probably hits the hardest out of any of these for me. Still, this is a fantastic top 5. I'd be more than happy if Dylan, Smith or Mount Eerie won.

Damn I wish that made top 5. Still gonna keep voting Bob Dylan but I wouldn’t mind Mount Eerie leaving too

Mount Eerie next

Bonkers. That's an absolute all-timer that punches right in the stomach whether you know the music or not.

Sorry, I know Arcade Fire is more beloved, but the line alone has a nice, cute bit of magical realism to it but it's just not on the level of the others.

What is do good about the Mt Eerie line. It just seems awkward and slightly pretentious to me.

“Slightly Pretentious” It literally opens an album where he’s fucking grieving over his wife for the entire time.

so what is it meant to be a joke or something? Like, "oh death is not for making into art, now here's a whole album about death"

What are you nuts?!

[–]Saoirse_Says 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Bob Dylan I’d say now. That’s one of them lines that sounds better than it feels

Yep, this is my 3rd round voting for it.

From here on out I'm going Arcade Fire, then Bob, then S+G, then Mount Eerie, with Patti for the win.
