Although it's probably been done, thought I'd give it a shot anyways.

In light of my recent re-read of Nick Hornby's "High Fidelity" and probably a billionth watching of the Amercanized film adaption, I'd like to see what UG's "Top 5's" are.
For those who have no clue what I'm talking about, in the book/movie, the characters like to make Top 5 lists constantly, some examples are:

-Top 5 Side Ones. Track Ones
-Top 5 Dream Jobs
-Top 5 Musical Crimes Perpetrated by Stevie Wonder in the '80s and '90s (etc...)

So anyways, the game is to make a type of Top 5 list, and every FIFTH person to post their answers gets to create the new list idea.
(NOTE: Lists don't have to be in any order)
Here we go:

Top 5 Songs Involving Water
1. The Ocean by Led Zeppelin
2. Nautical Disaster by The Tragically Hip
3. Down by the River by Neil Young
4. Rain Down On Me by Blue Rodeo
5. Texas Flood by Stevie Ray Vaughan

^Russian Circles fan.

I love me some "Micah", but Carpe has LONg been my favorite.

I LOOOOOOVE that sound at 6:08, that droning, amazing sound.

I played it for one of my friend's dads, and he said that when he was in his metal band back in the late 70s, early 80s, that loads of guys would use that sound during songs, and it was just a really cool bass (guitar) feedback that is kind of tricky to achieve, but great to play.

I was dumbfounded to hear that. I mean, that AMAZING sound is, possibly, just bass feedback. I have the amazing urge to test it out now.

That's really just bass feedback? Wow.

Carpe is a cool song, but Micah, that chanting at around 6:05...that just sounds chills down my spine every time.

I was so happy when I saw that the record store down the street got "Enter" in...I'd been looking for it for a while but couldn't find it anywhere.

Very cool. No store around here carries it, but I REALLY want to order the vinyl of it.

And, yea, that whole part is just amazing.
