My favorite song on the Album, Don Quixote is "Ordinary Man." The rest are all equally as good...Jesse.

Great idea though!

I really hate to put any of these songs toward the bottom of the list--the bottom 5 are just about as good as 2-6.

I'm not sure my mind is really made up on that list. However, I'm only keeping that list for now because I tend to replay Ode to Big Blue once or twice after the album is over. I usually point out what my favorite songs on an album are by trying to figure out what songs on that album I have the inclination to repeat.

Alrighty; a few hours have passed and I have decided to swap Patriot's Dream with Ode to Big Blue. :D

I missed this thread the first time around--stumbled upon it searching the archives. My order:

1. Ordinary Man
2. Looking At The Rain
3. On Susan's Floor
4. The Patriot's Dream
5. Christian Island
6. Beautiful
7. Second Cup Of Coffee
8. Brave Mountaineers
9. Alberta Bound
10.Don Quixote
11.Ode To Big Blue

The hardest part was trying to decide where to put "Beautiful"--I ended up sticking it in the middle. "Ordinary Man" has always been favorite from DQ, whereas I've never liked the title track too much; it's a nice tune, but it doesn't do much for me. "Big Blue" I find to be not very musical.

This is a very underrated album.

1. Beautiful (I played this at my wedding. When I met Gord the first time, we told him this and he was moved. I asked him to dedicate it to my wife and I the next night for our 10 year anniversary(we saw him 2 nights in a row!!) and he did!!!! It was probably the most moving moment at a GL concert for me ever.
2. Don Quixote
3. Christian Island
The rest of the songs all fall somewhere even for me.
