WOW!  I could never do that.....list that many in any kind of order.  "Best I can do is to listmyvery favorite which is "Cherry Bomb."  I ALWAYS smile when I hear it....always.  It reminds me of the great times I had with friends back when I was younger.  Reminds me how our hearts were always thumpin' back then.  So much anticipation and optimism.  Always the next step to take.  I guess if I were to try to pick a second right now it would be "For the Children"....and that would be for the exact opposite reason....everytime I hear that one it brings tears to my ears.  It's EVERYTHING I want to say to my kids....I DON'T know the answers....but all we can do is the best we can with what we believe.

Awesome list; fruit trader, chance meeting at the tarantula, worn out nervous condition, positively crazy, just like you, and jerry were all very close to making my top 50.  Those three albums that those songs are from (Mr. Happy Go Lucky, John Mellencamp, and Cuttin Heads) are so underrated. Also enjoy seeing Beige to Beige on there, one of my favorites.

Lets see some more lists people, lol

Awesome lists! I've been asked several times over the years what my favorite John Mellencamp song is and I can never answer the question! I suppose the reason is like many of you it changes. Pretty close to the top will always be songs from American Fool and Uh-Huh because that's when I began listening. Golden Gates will always be one of those songs because it reminds me of my Mom who died Jan. 5, 1984 from lung cancer at the age of 35. She gave me that album for Christmas so it sticks.
Lately I've been stuck on Save Some Time to Dream and The Real Life. Next month, who knows!
