I'm so glad to hear other people defending "Twentieth Century"!  It happens 
to be one of my favorite PSB tracks of all.  It's sweet, and funny, and in 
perfect keeping with the theme of Fundamental, the political as personal. 
One of my favorte PSB "couplets" too:

    Stay with me
    this century

And the sound is so electro-groovy!

A little late for me to be making a case for it now, but.

This poll was the most impossible one.  I feel Fundamental is PSB's first 
truly cohesive album.  But to make the effort, I figured we could afford to 
set "God willing" aside, and could make room for the grave-haunting 
"Resurrectionist".  That one resonates nicely with "Psychological", and the 
album art outfits, too.
