My favorites:

Yellow Lasers (which I covered in the recent hxaro)
More Science
Systematic Panic

I guess I like his electropop dancy things.

Oh and I also like his old old song about bee stings and allergies. I forget the name of it (I think it was just "allergy"). And his other weird old songs like Hiatal Hernia. His Hot Lunch from the very first SFLive was also great. I always got the impression he made it up on the spot.

Oh and Ugly Duckling is a great song that I totally relate to all too well.

Bad Dreams has always been my favorite JB song. It's a love song that is sort of an anti-love song - and it just sounds awesome.

I am also very fond of:

Funny Enough For You
120 MPH
Birds Of Our Own
Deep Sub-Reddit (abjure)

And come on, just look at the variety there: Loud anthemic rock, experimental Negativland-like humor, sweet a cappella, Laurie Anderson meets Philip Glass, G&G... Simply describing JB's range makes me feel like I'm in a creative rut in comparison.

This is a totally biased pick because I played on it, but I'm going with "All Tan." Honorable mention to the Nur Ein entry "Sleepwalking."

There are quite a few, many of which have already been named but can I claim 'teacher's pet' badge and say that JBB's 'Deterioration' is rapidly moving up my favourite SF songs of all time? Every time I hear it it grows on me more. Love the melody, the phrasing, the brilliantly funny/sad lyric, the 'never sounded more Mothersbaugh, in a good way' delivery (especially 'Preacher, explain it away'), the growly guitar and the fact it makes me want to be in the imaginary video. So, yeah, that one. Syco-fancy!

Gotta be Science... but that is one of my top SF songs (er, at least the ones I've heard).
