Indigo Girls: SKIPS

25 Feb

I’m ranking the entire catalogue, which is a big project.  But I thought I would start releasing the rankings in pieces.  Here are the few songs from the Indigo Girls I don’t care for.

Skip

-Sister (CoNS):  C, L

This version is after the Faye Tucker track as a short interlude before the secret song, Philosophy of Loss.  I usually like the song, but this one is too short and too quiet.  Note–don’t have secret songs anymore.  And now that there’s streaming, release the secret songs as their own track.  It’s been hell trying to rank Philosophy… when it’s tied to another song.  I think it’s the only track in their entire catalog that was never re-released on another album, put on a live album, or it’s own song.  This needs to change.

Skip-Boring

-Feed & Water the Horses (BQS):

-Birthday (BQS):  N

Emily was too happy and content when she was writing for Beauty Queen Sister, and as a result her songs are bland vanilla.

Skip-dislike

-Left Me a Fool (SF):  L

-History of Us (ST):  L, N

-Fare Thee Well (SO):

There are very few IG songs I genuinely dislike (pretty much these 3) and it’s mostly bc of the singing style. It may be the proper way to sing, but it isn’t my thing.
