Today on Frequency, we’re counting down the top 10 Built to Spill songs leading up to the band’s show tonight in Bend. (More details on that show here.)

8. “Fly Around My Pretty Little Miss” from “Ancient Melodies of the Future” (2001)
Short, spunky, fun; this is a side of Built to Spill we don’t see all that often. Plus I love the little “maybe, maybe, maybe” part that starts at 1:00. It’s like the aural equivalent of one of those fancy dancing fountains you see at some malls. Finally, there are dozens of bluegrass covers of this song on YouTube. Check ’em out.
