    Top 10 Favorite NIN songs

    Well, I've searched and searched for a thread like this, but could not find one.
    I could have sworn we've done this, but maybe not.

    Either way, with the conclusion of the "Trilogy" recently, and having the most up to date NIN catalog at this moment in time, figured this would be a good time to do this (or re-do it, if we've done it in the past)

    1. The Perfect Drug
    2. Sunspots
    3. Last
    4. And All That Could Have Been
    5. The Becoming
    6. We're In This Together
    7. Demon Seed
    8. Me, I'm Not
    9. The Idea Of You
    10. The Background World

    Honorable mentions: Sin, Ruiner, The Frail/The Wretched, Ahead Of Ourselves

    My list seems to change as much as my underwear, but here's my current list. Ask me again in a day or two and it'll probably be completely different.

    This Isn't The Place
    Gave Up
    While I'm Still Here/Black Noise
    Burning Bright (Field On Fire)
    Ringfinger
    And All That Could Have Been
    Eraser
    Somewhat Damaged
    Home
    The Great Destroyer

    Almost certainly not THE top ten for me, but pretty close:

    All The Love In The World
    And All That Could Have Been
    Burn
    Closer
    The Great Below
    Head Like A Hole
    The Perfect Drug
    Reptile
    Ruiner
    ...and then it's hard to pick just one, but instrumentals from The Fragile.

    Other contenders:
    Demon Seed
    Last
    Somewhat Damaged
    Something I Can Never Have

    Oh man. Same about this changing often...

    Currently...

    1. A Warm Place
    2. Closer
    3. This Isnít the Place
    4. The Persistance of Loss
    5. In this Twilight
    6. Head like a Hole
    7. The Beginning of the End
    8. Eraser
    9. The Background World
    10. Somewhat Damaged


    The Wretched, Ruiner, I Do Not Want This, Dear World, and Various Methods of Escape were excruciatingly left off of this mercilessly brief list.

    I surprised myself with Closer and Head Like A Hole. I am a little embarrassed to leave them in, but after all these years I never get sick of those songs. They are just objectively flawless works of art.

    I also didnít intend for my list to span most eras but I am happy it does.

    Branches/Bones
    Somewhat Damaged
    Last
    Find My Way

    Upon further reflection, Just Like You Imagined needs to be added as an 11th. All versions; album, live + theremin, live + Mike Garson. I can't choose.

    Disappointed in the lack of joke responses thus far.

    Even though I enjoy heavy/fast NIN the most probably, all of my all time favorite NIN songs are the slow, contemplative tracks that hurt (haha) to listen to.
