Best FK songs under 10 minutes

Postby miamiscot » 03 Jul 2014, 21:37

Although our beloved Flower Kings truly excel at the long format, epic songs there is much to be made of their shorter works as well. I'm interested in what long-time fans think and what their favorites are. Here's my Top 10:

1) Church Of Your Heart
2) Chicken Farmer Song
3) Thru The Walls
4) Hit Me With A Hit
5) Babylon
6) Black And White
7) Silent Sorrow
8) Ghost Of The Red Cloud
9) Painter
10) For The Love Of Gold

What others should I focus my attention on?

i can second all of your mentions (maybe 7 n 8 not that much)... i like it again very much that you included For the love of gold .... i so so love the first half!!

anyway, there is so much essential stuff to understand the whole universe of tfk, its amazing...
so many songs which fit for different moods...
its of course tricky if you divide it at the tenth minute... because there are many songs which clock under the 15th minute and are so so so good, but of course due to their length, its hard for them to compete with the ultra long-longplayers, so take care you dont miss them ;)

The end of innocence/the merrygoround
Adam & Eve
Psychedelic Postcard
Magic Pie
Rhythm of the sea
Dissonata
the pilgrims inn
under dog
what if god is alone
blue planet
timelines
just this once
the ressurected judas
cosmic circus
road back home (first half)

very chilled
serious dreamers
mommy leave the light on
you dont know what youve got
vox humana
dream o ndreamer
grand old world
elaine
a vampires view

instrumental
flight 999 brimstone air
circus brimstoned
christianopel
rumble fish twist
poor mr rains ordinary guitar/the man who walked with kings
agent soupreme
The Melting Pot
Flora Majora
Theme for a hero
oblivion road
bad beats
Burning spears
Magic circus of Zeb
Cosmic Lodge
don of the universe
astral dog
...

GoD medley
1/2/4/5/7/8/10/11/12//13/14/16/17/18

Nice compil... but the intro and outro of Timelines are pretty rough for a "chilled" album!! :twisted:

wowie, to be on the safe side, let's just say I know of it (and seeing your Terence Hill avatar sort of reminded me of me sort of knowing it, if you get my awkward drift). As for Nobody mentioning Man Overboard, like you suggested earlier, that's plausible - I would imagine he could well relate to its lyrics: someone out on a limb, or just looking for fun / all the same to me, digging an early grave.

Nice! I've been really getting into Desolation Rose and Banks Of Eden lately so Rising The Imperial is an excellent call. So beautiful it hurts. And is it just me or are the lyrics on the last two albums far superior to anything else in their discography? Simply awesome. They keep getting better and better - if that is even possible.
