So long as they are mainline album tracks as well as singles, sure.

Little Baby Nothing
La Tristesse Durera
No Surface all Feeling
Ready For Drowning
The Convalescent
1985
Second Great Depression
This Joke Sport Severed
Auto-Intoxication
Builder of Routines
Between the Clock and the Bed
Broken Algorithms
The Secret He Had Missed

I'm still not sure of the rules as everyone seems to be doing their own things with their lists but I tried to select non-singles (but I did pick some) and find a balance between my favourite track and the track that I think encapsulates my feeling about the era. All good fun.

Today, I have mostly been thinking:

Generation Terrorists: Motorcycle Emptiness
Gold Against The Soul: Sleepflower
The Holy Bible: Faster
Everything Must Go: A Design For Life
This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours: Tsunami
Know Your Enemy: Intravenous Agnostic
Lifeblood: To Repel Ghosts
Send Away The Tigers: The Second Great Depression
Journal For Plague Lovers: Peeled Apples
Postcards From A Young Man: Some Kind of Nothingness
Rewind The Film: (I Miss the) Tokyo Skyline
Futurology: Black Square
Resistance Is Futile: Hold Me Like A Heaven
The Ultra Vivid Lament: Diapause

Lifeblood is the hardest choice for me, I think Iíve almost always said TRG is my fave track, but there are literally 5 serious contenders I love (almost) equally!
Postcards was difficult, it was between 3 or 4 for that one.
And Mirror Gaze would be my choice for RIF if we were allowing bonus tracks, but weíre not, so it isnít.
Pretty settled on Diapause for TUVL but that could change because the album is still so new.
The others didnít cause any great deliberation or consternation, they were almost instinctual choices.

GT Tennessee
GATS Nostalgic Pushead
THB. PCP
EMG. No Surface All Feeling
TIMT. Be Natural
KYE Dead Martyrs
LB. Fragments
SATT. Imperial Bodybags
JFPL. Virginia State Epileptic Colony
PFAYM. The Descent
RTF. Running Out Of Fantasy
Fut. Let's Go To War
RIF. A Song For The Sadness.
TUVL. Into The Waves Of Love

Wanted to include Complicated Illusions but not sure if it's going to be next single.
PCP may have been a double A side, but pretty sure it was never played on the radio.

Singles are allowed! Singles are allowed! For the love of Richard Nixon, singles are allowed!

Read my list! Life Becoming a Landslide, Faster, YLAINE, PFAYM, Hold Me Like A Heaven!

The singles comment was purely for the likes of Suicide is Painless (arguably GT era), There By The Grace of God (arguably Lifeblood era) etc.

Well... that's one way of reading it. Another is "tracks on albums"

I've edited the initial post to clarify, feel free to go again should you so wish.
