So lost I would sleep in the palms of your hands
in dreams we were happy and safe
I can’t comprehend the ways I miss you
they come to light in my mistakes
Neko Case returns to The Pageant this evening in St. Louis, and she’s arriving with a deep catalog of songs from which to choose. You know the albums: The Virginian, Furnace Room Lullaby, Blacklisted, The Tigers Have Spoken, Fox Confessor Brings the Flood, Middle Cyclone, and the latest gem, The Worse Things Get, The Harder I Fight, The Harder I Fight, The More I Love You.
I’ve listened to all of these. And by listened, I mean lived with them, soaking in each sound while lying on the hardwood floor. That is how I prefer to listen to Neko Case.
Tickets are still available for tonight’s show — for how long, I don’t know. But to celebrate this evening at The Pageant, I’ve selected my favorite 30 Neko Case songs to help count down the hours. Enjoy.
