The 11 Best Songs By Jenny Lewis

Coming up with a "best of" list for Jenny Lewis is more complicated than it seems.  Jenny has had such a rich, complex musical career, it's challenging to narrow it down to one specific aspect.  First you have her stint with Rilo Kiley, an amazing noughties band, which only cracked the surface for exposure.  You have her solo career, which is really only one album, since Rabbit Fur Coat is more of a collaboration album with the Watson Twins and Jenny and Johnny is a duet album with Jonathan Rice.  Then there are all her guest appearance for bands like Postal Service, Bright Eyes, and Elvis Costello. So where do I start?  Should I do an exhaustive list of all the best songs of Rilo Kiley or just a slice of her solo section?  What about her movies and TV shows?  I couldn't let's just do them all. The 11 Best Songs By Jenny Lewis:
  1. More Adventurous (More Adventurous)
  2. Love and War 11/11/46 (More Adventurous)
