interesting.  I probably voted the same as you though, although I wouldn\'t mind kicking your ass in a game of kickball...can I change my vote?! ;)
Don\'t shoot the messenger it\'s not his fault...
It\'s just a drag when you\'re the last one to know.

A lot like Alice he does great metal work.
Rufus\' rarity and the fact that it is a difficult song for Tim to play the way he likes make Rufus my  choice.
Buquebus still rocks my soul however when they get into the gnarly ambient type jams.

ambient was the word I was looking for earlier.

I still stand by Buquebus, although this is beginning to look like the last election...

I accept this duel. A very noble way to decide such a heated topic.

i might be down for this...kickball is one of the few sports i take seriously and competitively..i put it in the same category as wiffleball, volleyball and of course badminton

RUFUS!

The way it looks like right now is me vs. the rest of you. It\'s ok, I was kickball champion of my town 3 years in a row.

I don\'t think I can pick between the two Breakfast children.  Both are a couple of their best songs.

Rufus is a sick ass tune and one of the best breakfast tunes going....it almost had my vote just because it is a relatively rare Animal original composition.....

However.....

I went with Buquebus becaust it lets everyone in the band step up and add their flavor in the tune.....  it is a bit more intricate and the jams that have been developing within Buquebus have been some of the most amazing instrumental breakfast to date....

Finally, someone else is on my side here. I won\'t be the only one on the Buquebus kickball team.

How do you see Buquebus as more intricate? I ask only because after a particularly ripping Rufus in \'03, Timmy mentioned to me that he needs to practice more on the guitar to play Rufus properly. Now it is almost 2 years later and he has indeed improved his playing on this song. It is still an intricate song for a player of Timmy\'s caliber even now. I also feel if they played this song more it would lend to some pretty interesting jams for sure where everyone would be able to add their bits.
