Default could we ever come up with a consensus on the best SP song?

i know its all subjective, but i feel like its one of the Siamese songs.
Soma?

Mayonaise?

Hummer?

those are just some of the ones that come to mind from that era.

porcelina is up there too i think

Yeah, it's gotta be from that era for sure, Id throw Geek USA in the mix too. These fans who think it's a track from Machina are insane

I would say Hummer Mayo and Soma are maybe the most cited as ultimate favs in my completely anecdotal self-reported experience as a fan

I hate to jump on the Mayo, Hummer, Soma bandwagon but yeah, after 10 years of observing online fan communities in their natural habitat, those three songs get the most mentions/praise, as they should. But I'll throw in a few overlooked classics.
Tonight Tonight. (I know it's one of their biggest songs, but I rarely see it checked off in these fan lists. But it deserves to be up there with Ruby and Porcelina)

Also, For Martha & Home.

yes, because if you don't fall in the lowest common denominator or aren't stuck in the early 90s grunge/"punk" era you are insane

Stand Inside Your Love, This Time, & Age of Innocence are as good of answers to this question as any

Could hundreds of people with different tastes and personalities come to a unanimous agreement as to the best work by a group they all like that produced several good things for a period spanning about a decade?

Yeah, I don't see what's so unlikely about that.

Well we've already narrowed it down to at least 3-6 tracks in this thread. That's pretty good.
