4 Across the Sea Across the Sea

Such a beautiful song! Packed with emotion, because a piece of paper can only provide so much satisfaction. This song makes you feel so alone and empty, Rivers voice just breaks your heart.

It's the most well-rounded song along with the good life, but it just has some better mechanics. The bridge is great how it changes key by going from the current scale to its minor version of the scale (ex C major -> C minor (Eb major)). The progression of the song is great how it goes from a simple riff to an explosive chorus to a soft bridge to an even more explosive climax. I feel it has the most emotion.

5 Pink Triangle Pink Triangle

It's a great song. The chorus is genius and the melody is catchy as heck. Plus, it's a song that most dudes can relate to (I realize that's every song on this album, but this one does it better than all the others).

6 Why Bother Why Bother

I love the refrain. It has such a great beat. I can't help, but jump on one foot like guitarist do on the refrain. - Jammer196

9 Getchoo Getchoo
10 Butterfly Butterfly

It may or be loud or catchy, but this is Rivers Cuomo songwriting at its finest

This is not supposed to be at number ten one of the best songs ever made.
