The 11 Best Pavement Songs (NON-Album Tracks)

A wise man once said (that was me) that you can judge a band by their B-sides. A band with strong B-sides has a long career ahead of themselves. A band with throwaway tracks doesn't have the creative ability to stand up to the test of time. Pavement is a prime example of a band whose B-Sides, at many times, rival their album tracks. Most bands would kill to have A-sides on par with some of Pavement's B-Sides. In fact, most bands would kill to have as many A-Sides as Pavement does B-Sides. Pavement has close to 75 officially released non-album tracks. Take that Morrissey!

So to continue the celebration of the expanded edition of Pavement's Wowee Zowee, here are...

The 11 Best Pavement Songs (NON-Album Tracks):

1. Westie Can Drum (Brighten The Corners B-Side) MP3
2. Texas Never Whispers (Watery, Domestic)
3. The Killing Moon (What's Up Matador?)
4. Harness Your Hopes (Terror Twilight B-Side)
5. Unseen Power of the Picket Fence (No Alternative)
6. Easily Fooled (Wowee Zowee B-Side)
7. Sue Me Jack (Slanted and Enchanted B-Side)
8. Roll With The Wind (Terror Twilight B-Side)
9. Painted Soldiers (Brain Candy)
10. Raft (Crooked Crooked Rain B-Side)
11. Shoot The Singer (Watery, Domestic)

i would almost have to completely agree with this list as a PHD in Pavementologyism. I would add two tracks from the Pacific Trim EP- "Give it a Day" and "Gangsters and Pranksters" and of course "Frontwards" from Watery, Domestic EP - love, thelegendaryboomboxg, Pavementologistgeek
