Okay, these are my 5 favorite songs, RIGHT NOW, what are yours?

I go through these musical phases. I’ll like one sound for a while and listen to it exclusively. Last month it was Steve Miller. Over and Over again. Butt now I’m going fo the garage rocky sound of these guys. Okay, I’ll just put 'em out here in random order:

The Breeders - “Huffer” Man, that songs just keeps going through my head, night and day. I’m stuck humming it over and over, can’t get rid of it. And it sure isn’t lyrically complex, just a whole lot of “dah dee dah dahdah deedah”

The Breeders - “Sinister Foxx” Okay, has anyone seen the Iguana? I really want to know. This song is cool.

The Pixies - “Digging for Fire” and “Bone Machine” Geez, both of these songs are really catchy, and anytime “Huffer” isn’t stuck in my head, mostly likely I’ll be expostulating “Your bone’s got a little machiiiine” for no reason.

Okay, I knew it’d be tough picking the last one, but it’s surely a White Stripes tune. Is it “Seven Nation Army”? Surely a lot of other people think it’s their best, but I might have to go with “Girl You Have No Faith in Medicine”, cuz dammit, that one’s catchy. How 'bout “We’re Going to be Friends”, that one’s cool in a ‘remembering my youth’ vein. Or “Hotel Yorba”, catchy one again. But maybe it’s Sleater-Kinney’s “One Beat” or “Ironclad”.

So what are your 5 songs?
