This is basically a toss up for me.

Parachutes is best. I would not have expected Marker to be on this Top 2 list

As with NC and Vitalogy, these are my favorite two songs on the album. I guess I'll have to vote Parachutes, but I'm not confident at all in that decision.

Parachutes by a country mile.

Marker is not only the best song on this record but top shelf PJ in general. Parachutes, while lovely, isn't as compelling or moving.

I never in a billion years would have suspected Marker winning from this album its a track that's just 'there' to me. But man.....I mean its good but...ugh...I dunno. Parachutes ftw

Marker is the most Riot Act-y song on the album.

Every time I listen to "Parachutes" I am blown away by how beautiful, melodic and musically interesting song it is. It's a very carefully composed song and Ed shines in it. Even though it employs some cool rhythmic tricks, the whole thing just feels effortless and breezy. "Marker" is a cool verse stuck to a limp, uninteresting chorus with a super plain melody and where the strain in writing really shows. "Parachutes" is the much better song.

I'm a big fan. Marker and Parachutes are pretty much a tossup for me for best song on the album.

Hot take: I enjoy both the verses and chorus of MITS.
