The 11 Best Songs By M. Ward
He's been called the Bob Dylan without talent, the Elliott Smith without pain, the Nick Drake without heart, the Ryan Adams without 8000 unreleased demos, the Joni Mitchell with testicles. (okay, I made up the last one). But the one thing that M.Ward is...is persistant. I'll have to be perfectly honest, I was never a fan. That is until She & Him. If someone as hot as Zooey Deschanel thinks there's something special about this guy...then he's definitely worth another listen. And so far, Hold Time is my favorite album of the year. Since then, I've gone back to do some rediscovery and this is the result.
Here are the 11 Best Songs by M. Ward:
1. Poison Cup (Post-War)
2. Chinese Translation (Post-War)
3. Vincent O'Brien (Transfiguration of Vincent)
4. Post-War (Post-War)
5. Carolina (End of Amnesia)
6. Eyes on the Prize (Post-War)
7. Beautiful Car (Duets For Guitars)
8. Outta My Head (Transfiguration of Vincent)
9. Undertaker (Transfiguration of Vincent)
10. Sweethearts on Parade (Transistor Radio)
11. Let's Dance (Transfiguration of Vincent)
