Hi, hope this question hasn't been asked before Surprised . Anyway, if you took all of Brian's various lineups into account, what are your Top 5 favorite songs, in order, that he's written? Just interested to see other people's picks! There's a lot of great ones to choose from. (OK, you can have one honorable mention too Razz). Here are mine:

1. Wherefore Art Thou, Elvis?

2. Sweet Delta Blues

3. Blood Loss

4. Great Expectations

5. Orphans

Honorable Mention: Meet Me By the River's Edge, Bring It On


(Fine, I broke my own 'rule' too).

With the exception of Cincinnati Rail Tie, I'm really not a fan of anything pre-Gaslight, but I've tried to give my list a good mix of what I do like.

1) Even Cowgirls Get The Blues (Gaslight Anthem)
2) Mary Ann (Horrible Crowes)
3) Miles Davis & The Cool (Gaslight Anthem)
4) Tin Pan Alley (Brian Fallon)
5) Look on the Brightside (Cincinnati Rail Tie)

I love these kinds of lists, but it's so hard to choose just five! Hmm, let's see...

1. Bring It On
2. Red at Night
3. Queen of Lower Chelsea
4. She Loves You
5. Sugar

Honorable Mentions - Great Expectations, High Lonesome, Even Cowgirls Get the Blues, Wherefore Art Thou, Elvis?, and The Backseat (sorry, Matilda Noir, I couldn't pick just one honorable mention!)

Interesting how many different songs have already been named.

1. Old White Lincoln
2. Italian Lightning
3. The Spirit of Jazz
4. Navesink Banks
5. Tin Pan Alley

Honorable Mention...Ladykiller.

I've surprised myself with how evenly this is distributed between solo work and the 3 gaslight records (LPs anyway)...couldn't fit anything from Elsie on there though...I'm still in the infatuation stage with that record while the top 5 are like the friends I'm always going to love.

I just wanted preface this with I think (IMO) The Blues, Mary is the best song Brian's ever written. The lyrics, his vocal delivery, the amazing grace sung silently in the background at the end, and that chorus it all comes together in one masterpiece. So without further ado:


1. The Blues, Mary
2. She Loves You
3. The Diamond of The Church Street Choir
4. Angry Johnny On The Radio
5. High Lonesome


As everyone else said this was very hard, but I didn't dwell on it I just ripped the bandaid off.
