    Nice list! I definitely have to listen more to Garbage, cause there are a lot of songs in the list I don't really know! Nice to see every album is presented, so even the album you like least (beautifulgarbage) contains enough great songs. I would have put Only Happy When It Rains higher up in the list, together with The World is Not Enough. But this one is not on Version 2.0 is it? At least not on my version... :-) They should release a compilation disc with all their b-sides, including this one :-)

    BG is saved by two totally fantastic b-sides: Use Me (which is the best song from whole bg-era) and Confidence... Generally, there is inverse relationship between my love to the album and my love to its b-sides :-) Because BG's ones beat all the others! Then go BLM's, then - G's and my least favourite ones are from V2-era... There are no b-sides yet from the latest album, but there are bonus tracks which are great! TWINE is technically released after V2, for James Bond movie of the same name. But I relate it to that era, because the singles hadn't stopped being released (just an example of bad usage of English :D): You Look So Fine was released after TWINE.. And despite musically being a stand-out from G-songs of all the periods, it's more into V2, than into BG, I think.... BTW, TWINE and #1 Crush (another soundtrack song) were included in 2007 singles compilation "Absolute Garbage" ;-)

    I know about the Absolute Garbage compilation album, but unfortunately it's not available anymore, at least not in Dutch stores. TWINE is a bit of a stand-out indeed, but I really like its bombastic, film music sound, it fits so well with a James Bond movie (although I must say I really don't like James Bond at all). And even if the English might not be completely correct, I understand you perfectly! :-)

    :-) Actually, I saw only two latest James Bond films. I liked them, but not more than any other good action movie :-) Though I listened to all the title themes, and TWINE is my favourite without any doubt. Chris Cornell's You Know My Name is definitely the 2nd place :-)

    I also think TWINE is the best James Bond title theme song :-) I didn't know the Chris Cornell song, looked it up on youtube, but I'm not impressed yet. I have a strong memory of Madonna's Die Another Day, but I don't think the song is very good. It's just the video that's very controversial and provocative, which could be expected of course :-)

    Yeees, Die Another Day is really weak, imo. Though the video is still great. But the worst JB-song ever is (and will always remain, I guess) is Jack White and Alicia Keys, "Another Way To Die"... It's just awful for my taste!

    Oh... this song is awful indeed. I don't like it at all.
