Greetings all you lovely ladies and gents! Ready for round #2? Well...just bear with me for a bit and list your favorite songs on Sundown in order. Later, a ranking in popularity will be shown.

Here is some wisdom: You may see how albums differ from each other. Some lists may be more top heavy (a few songs ranked way above the rest), some, all ranked closer, etc. Should be fun! Come on! Go My Way! ...has this already been done?

1. 7 Island Suite (this one's epic!)
2. The Watchman's Gone (unbelievably underrated)
3. Too Late For Prayin' (a heartfelt prayer)
4. Is There Anyone Home? (I love this one!)
5. High & Dry
6. Circle of Steel
7. Sundown (over-played for me)
8. The List
9. Carefree Highway (ditto)
10. Somewhere U.S.A.

marc in maine,

Thanks for staying up to date with this thread...
I may as well vote,

1) 7 island suite
2) The watchman's gone
3) High and dry
4) Circle of steel
5) Too late for prayin'
6) Somewhere U.S.A.
7) Is there anyone home
8) Sundown
9) Carefree highway
10) The list

What a great album. I suppose Sundown and Carefree Highway have just settled due to overexposure. I certainly didn't feel this way upon first listening.
