As I've done for the rest of the guys, I thought it would be interesting, so I compiled the results of this thread to see what the top vote-getters were. So from those who have made a list in this thread, here is a list of Joe's songs that got the most votes up to this point ...

1. Turn To Stone
2. Life's Been Good
3. Rocky Mountain Way
4. Meadows
5. A Life of Illusion
6. Help Me Thru the Night
7. The Confessor
8. All Night Long
9. Ordinary Average Guy
10. I Can Play That Rock and Roll
11. Walk Away
12. Indian Summer
13. Welcome To the Club

So if my calculations are correct, the only song to make everyone's list is Turn To Stone, and Life's Been Good is the only song that made everyone's list but one. As I ask in the other threads, anyone find any surprises here?

I really like Tend My Garden, so I'm surprised that it's not on more peoples' lists.

Only that I seem to be the only one who included Second Hand Store, which I absolutely love.

Meadows
Rosewood Bitters (acoustic version)
Bomber
Funk #49
Walk Away
Turn To Stone
Life of Illusion

I'm a little surprised at all the Indian Summer adds, not that it's not a great song, but kinduva hidden "hit". I am surprised there's not more for At The Station, also a great song IMO, or ODAAT.
I could make a list everyday and it would be different, depending on my mood and what was the deal at the moment. I have a lot of "Favorites"...but Confessor & Turn To Stone would always be on my list.

I agree about At the Station - it definitely made my list. However, while I like The Confessor, I have to confess it's not one of my favorites. The biggest surprise to me is the omission of Funk #49 from the list and to a lesser extent, Tend My Garden. Iím guessing itís because they are James Gang songs, although Walk Away did make the list. In my original post, I did not include James Gang songs, but I did add my favorites at the end of my post to give them honorable mentions.

I'm a little surprised by the lists too by what is there and isn't there... Very interesting to read them all.
