I really love music of all kinds, and have a pretty sick music collection to show for it, but as of late I've found myself coming to your blog for direction. I really appreciate all the hard work you've put into your blog and hope it opens some doors for you.

Umphrey's McGee is the shit by the way :o)

What exactly were you smoking when you made this list?!

Undone - 77?
Holiday - 71?
Across The Sea - 61?
Falling For You - 47?
Only in Dreams - 41?
Say It Ain't So - 36?

I lol'ed when I saw Only in Dreams one spot behind the Weezer classic American Gigolo, but then I saw Say It Ain't So at #36...

It's widely regarded as one of the best rock songs of the 90's, yet you ranked the following songs higher...
35 - Heart Songs
28 - Freak Me Out
25 - Possibilities
24 - We Are All On Drugs
22 - Teenage Victory Song
and you somehow managed to squeeze a Make Believe song into the top ten with
9 - This Is Such A Pity

This baffles me...

Across the Sea is one of the greatest songs made in the past 25 years. No exaggeration. I'd put it number one with Buddy Holly at number 2. But then again, maybe I'm too mainstream for your hipster bullshit list.

Across the Sea made the list.
