Don't be Defeatist; Top 25 Eisley songs

Been listening to tons of Eisley lately, inspired of course with the release of their 5th album I'm Only Dreaming last month (my review here). I was blessed with discovering Eisley back when they were called MossEisley, specifically hearing them for the first time in May of 2002 when I ordered EP1 and EP2 off their website. Then I saw them at Cornerstone 2002 and the rest was history. (Random comment worth mentioning if you were not aware: when they signed to Warner Brothers in 2003, Lusasfilm objected to their name, so they briefly changed it to Neverland.)

Besides just making a list of my top 25 favorite Eisley songs, I also made a YouTube playlist of live in concert versions of all 25 songs. The only exception is the new songs that I haven't found live versions of yet. Some of these live versions are unique, highly modified versions of the studio tracks.
