My Five Best Indie Songs

I'm not here to defend indie music. Or wait, maybe I am. I was born in the 80's, I'm white, I'm from the Midwest. I am the target audience for music written by white men with bourgeois problems and confessional lyrics. That being said, here are what I consider the five best indie songs of the last 15 years, in no particular order:

1. "Holland, 1945" by Neutral Milk Hotel

2. "Art is Hard" by Cursive

3. "Trees Get Wheeled Away" by Bright Eyes

4. "Waltz #2" by Elliott Smith

5. "This Year" by the Mountain Goats

Agree with me? Disagree? Want to make your own list? Yay!!
