What's the best Libertines song ever?

NME writer Jamie Fullerton asks THE QUESTION in his blog. I agree with Anthony Thornton, who says The Good Old Days is his fave.

"It was the last song they ever played together at Club Infinity and it's probably the closest to an equal two-hander they ever recorded. It's got the best lyric they ever wrote: ‘If you've lost your faith in love and music, then the end won't be long.’ It always inspires the biggest emotional outpouring from fans every time it’s played, but particularly at the Tap ‘N’ Tin reunion gig, the last Libs show and the Pete and Carl reunion at Hackney. Each of them had people sobbing."

The NME again announces the release of a new Babyshambles DVD next week. The DVD will come as part of the limited edition CD of Shotter's Nation, the new album by the band. It will feature a 40-minute track-by-track interview with the band, as they discuss the album. There is also live footage of the band’s gig at the Boogaloo Bar in London earlier this year.
The live tracks are as follows: 'UnBiloTitled,' 'There She Goes,' ‘Pipedown,’ 'Delivery' and 'Baddie's Boogie.'

In the meantime the NME has reviewed Shotters giving the album a 8/10 rating (if I'm not mistaken it was the same rating they gave to Down in Albion and to Waterloo to Anywhere, even though they're now dismissing them both).
