I had the same experience, only liking a small percentage of his songs initially. It's a few years later and his songs continue to win me over, sometimes because I'm in a different mood, and other times when i pay closer attention to the lyrics or songwriting. he's really unlike most other artists in this regard.

Like I predicted, my top 10 has already changed quite a bit. Surely You Don't Work All Night needs to be in my top 10, for one thing.

Also, I got White Magic, and Alien Mind Control is on the way from amazon. I got their last copy and there was only 1000 pressed, as i understand. White Magic is good, and I agree with your selection of You Are The One, which is my latest obsession. It sounds like the best song John Lennon never wrote, but at the same time sounds distinctly like Johnston.  The piano interlude at the end is incredibly gorgeous/creepy.

I also much prefer the White Magic version of Tears Stupid Tears.

This list is going to change with time (I still haven't heard White Magic or Retired Boxer, among other albums). In no order:

Grievances
Held the Hand
Some Things Last a Long Time
Honey I Sure Miss You
Walking the Cow
Life in Vain
An Idiot's End
Museum of Love
Speeding Motorcycle
I Had Lost My Mind

Pretty generic I suppose, but these 10 come to mind first.
4  General Discussion / Fan Forums / The many references Johnston makes on: July 10, 2008, 11:02:12 PM
I didn't find out about Johnston until a few months ago and haven't been able to listen to anything else since.

I'm curious about many of the references made throughout Johnston's music. I understand the obvious ones like funeral, but know nothing about references to cows, for example. I'm drawing a blank on the numerous other references he makes, but another example is him saying he almost got hit by a truck, which I'm assuming is a real story?

Also, I'm assuming Laura (from Held the Hand) a different girl than Laurie. Is that correct?
