These are some of my favorite PJ lyrics:
Quote:
They said that timing was everything.
Made him want to be everywhere.
There's a lot to be said for nowhere.

I really like "Never Destination" but "MFC" has that indescribable Yield-ness to it that just exists in another stratosphere for me. Compositionally the song may fit within that "scrappy Vedder rocker" format that has been his calling card for so long -- you can kind of hear this in the live versions. But much like "Leatherman" there is a lightness and easy pace to the studio version that makes it feel like it isn't really at home in that category.

Yeah, it's light as a feather. Not many fast-paced PJ songs like it.

I have always been a big fan and a vocal supporter of MFC. I still think it’s great. I also think Never Destination is probably better.

Yeah, just listened a few more times, and Never Destination is clearly better. Both are great though.

this song has far more in common with MFC than Supersonic

it's more like Satan's Bed than Supersonic

It’s more like the John Cougar song than Satan’s Bed.

This, but I like "MFC" better. As Kevin Davis said, it's got a light, breezy spirit that's never really been replicated. But "Never Destination" is a good song in its own right.

I compared ND with the John Cougar song with my 16 year old and she informed me it’s more like Footloose than the John Cougar tune.

Fuckin’ Footloose, man.

I don’t know how to properly rank this song on the album yet. I may have it too low. I do love listening to it every time. The Petty outro is the perfect icing on the cake.

I've got QE, Who Ever Said & 7:00 above this one. This or Dance... is next for me.

I feel like I want to go there, but then I keep listening and every song makes such a strong case. It’s difficult. But this song is absolutely one of my new favorites, that’s for sure.

They’re pretty much all top six or seven, I just can’t feel super confident in how to rank 12 songs in the top seven. It’s tricky.
