Essential Cat Power Songs

I discussed Cat Power (Chan Marshall) a bit in my post a few days ago, which you can read by clicking here. Eventually, I will review all of these songs, but here is my list of the "Essential Cat Power" songs. Much like my Dylan list, they are the songs that best represent her career, presented in a logical order.



Essential Cat Power:
Still in Love
Rockets
Talking People
Nude as the News
Say
Metal Heart
I Can't Get No (Satisfaction)
I Don't Blame You
He War
Speak for Me
Love and Communication
The Greatest
Silver Stallion
Ramblin' Woman
I Believe in You
Haiku Ten
Cherokee
Ruin

"If you're looking for something easy you might as well give it up"
-Chan Marshall

Just for fun, here is the short (1:22) song "Haiku Ten", which is a simple rendition of a famous poem over music made by Sigmatropic (never heard of 'em). Chan's voice is perfect in this one. You'll wish the song went on forever:
