    after a whole 10 seconds of critical thinking:

    radiohead - subterranean homesick alien
    prodigy - smack my bitch up
    massive attack - butterfly caught
    sigur ros - svefn g englar
    the cure - plainsong

    honorable mentions...

    boards of canada - dawn chorus
    plaid - ralome
    meat beat manifesto - supersoul
    my bloody valentine - come in alone
    ulrich schnauss - blumenthal
    aphex twin - we are the music makers

    I'm pretty sure there's a top ten songs thread somewhere, and I don't want to rethink my top ten into five at this point. That makes me nervous.

    That would be my underworld pick as well. Pearls Girl would easily make my Back 2 Mine.
