mine has changed quite a lot, but i think my favorite over all is the song "dream in sound".....its outstanding....but arrow flies close, and step through the portal are genius as well.

Also, I used to have a radio show named 'A Dream in Sound,' so I have obvious affinities for that song and most everything on that record, except for that song about the bird with the candy bar head. Too silly even for me.

The fact that no one has said my fave, which is "Skeleton," surprises me. It's probably one of the top 10 songs for me period.

winderhath
04-11-2004, 05:19 AM
it would have to be "The Palace of the Flames". that's the first elf power song i ever heard, in fact, and i was hooked from that moment. some other faves are "finally free", "the winter is coming", "the winter hawk", "empty pictures", "the arrow flies close", and "the bengal parade"

Palace of the Flames is my favourite. I mean, it's called "Palace of the Flames" for pete's sake! One of the best song titles of all time, and the best song on Creatures if nothing else.

I love Jane, Arrow Flies Close, Unforced Peace (cover of Roky Erickson), and off of the new one...too many great ones, but try "Don't Let it Be."

The Great Society and The Winter is Coming are the two that I play the most... but it's so hard to choose. I like all of their music so much.

Ryan Fleisher
10-27-2004, 03:23 PM
Well...just seeing them live confirmed that we dream in sound is thier best (my favorite rather) song....BUT there are also:

Drug Store (Dwarves cover)
Circular Malevolence
The Great Society
The Winter Is Comming
All Your Experiments
Skeleton
Never Talking to You Again (Husker Du Cover)
O What A Beautiful Dream
The Well

Much thanks and love to andrew for sneaking/getting me into that crappy 21+ venue in DC and letting me request songs
You're the best! ever....

jane was the first song i heard from elf power and i think that might have ruined every song thereafter for me. although i haven't heard much. yet. i might like the winter is coming better though. what.

Simon, take your time, dear
Don't float away too far
I think about you all the time, I wonder where you are
I know you've led a million lives, I've seen your new disguise

You are the bird with the candy bar head
The other birds never let you fly
They're always nibblin' on your head
Never thought to ask them why
No, you never thought to ask them why

Simon shook his feathers and flew up in the sky
The way his flock would make him walk it always made me cry
I know you've flown a million miles
I've seen you in the sky

You are the bird with the candy bar head
The other birds never let you fly
They're always nibblin' on your head
Never thought to ask them why
No, you never thought to ask them why

When I see them pecking on you in the rain
I will chase them all away
I will take you home and mend your broken body

'Cause you're the bird with the candy bar head
The other birds never let you fly
They're always nibblin' on your head
Never thought to ask them why
No, you never thought to ask them why
No, you never thought to ask them why

palace of flames is a great song one of my favorites. but also Visions of the Sea, Creature and Creature pt II and Modern Mind are really good

I think my favorite Elf Power song is step though the portal, I just like a lot of the songs from "When the Red King Comes" a lot. I guess it could be that the first Elf Power song I heard was Introducing cosmic space. Then again im also in love with Jane, it fills my head with all this werid imagery and it something that is nice to look at nothing and listen to.

either "Icy Hands will Never Melt Away" or "When the Red King Comes."

I really love the song "The Sun is Forever."

Fun Fact:
This was the first E6 song I ever heard, and my first post here was asking the name of that song.

Pretty much everything off Creatures, ho man!

we dream in sound
temporary arm
when the red king comes
the bengal parade

Ihavenoface might be incapable of being called beautiful or ugly, but it is capable of being dead-on: "Let the Serpent Sleep" rocks like no other Elf Power song.

High Atop The Silver Branches (for that drum part near the end)

Skeleton (for that guitar solo thing at the end... almost as if it does for guitars what HATSB did for drums!)

I haven`t heard their version of `The Secret Ocean`, but I like the lyrics in the Of Montreal version.

A lot of the stuff from `The Winter Is Coming` seems like their best... the mood on that album really makes November special. And I like blurry circles.

Right now my top 3 are probably...

High Atop the Silver Branches
Skeleton (for the reason already mentioned, that guitar at the end is out of control)
Arrow Flies Close
