In honour of The Replacements reunion: my favorite Replacements songs

That giant scream of glee you heard yesterday was me.  It came when I learned that The Replacements were reuniting for three concerts, including a Toronto gig at Riot Fest at Fort York on Aug 25th (Iggy & The Stooges, Rocket From The Crypt, and Dinosaur Jr are also on the bill).

Why am I so excited?  Here are the top 10 reasons:
10. "Alex Chilton"
9. "Color Me Impressed"
8. "Message To the Boys"
7. "Sadly Beautiful"
6. "Bastards of Young"
5. "Unsatisfied"
4. "I Will Dare"
3. "Here Comes A Regular"
2. "Answering Machine"
1. "Little Mascara"

...and as a bonus: "Androgynous", "Waitress In the Sky", "Swingin' Party", "Can't Hardly Wait", "Achin' To Be", "Shiftless When Idle"

...and this classic video:
