Mark Lanegan: His Best Dark Hits(or something more clever)

Talk about the formidable Screaming Trees, the first band I ever saw live (opening for Soul Asylum and Spin Doctors in the early 90s).

Mark Lanegan: His Best Dark Hits(or something more clever)

Post by Y2K-kyle » Thu Nov 29, 2012 7:21 pm

I'm pretty excited about Mark Lanegan's upcoming Greatest Hits album in 2013, and I was wondering, what would you y'all consider his best works.

And I know most of y'all will say EVERYTHING, but c'mon, let's be somewhat "serious" :wink: :wink: What songs would you choose to put on a CD and give it to a friend so he or she can get into "Dark Mark" ?

To make it interesting, let's have two lists, if you don't mind. One for just his solo stuff, and one with EVERYTHING he has taken apart of. I'll have to review his material I have to make a list :D

I tried to seduce my wife by singing Big Dumb Sex to her once. Didn't work out though, I dunno why

Well, Blues Funeral was the way to my heart for good. Lately I've been listening to The Gutter Twins and Soulsavers.

Anything Mark touches turns to gold.
I come from a country of northern lights, lightless days and nightless nights.
I'm not gonna sit around and waste my precious divine energy trying to explain and be ashamed of things you think are wrong with me.

Who cares about greatest hits; Whiskey for the Holy Ghost and The Winding Sheet is all you need, man! :P

I don't think I could come up with a greatest hits kind of thing, but I think a comprehensive list of some of his bus stuff would be:

1. Hospital Roll Call
2. Wedding Dress
3. Wild flowers
4. Witness
5. In the Fade
6. Methamphetamine Blues
7. Hotel
8. No Easy Action
9. You Won't Let Me Down Again
10. Black River
11. Hit the City
12. Praying Ground
13. Paper Money
14. One Hundred Days
15. Riding the Nightingale

Alright moved this thread to range stuff because as you can see there are a lot of notes.

With the Gabriel video finished I'm gonna be focusing on finishing Lanegan's note watching. This upcoming video is one I'm especially looking forward to so be ready folks
