Default Re: Celebration of "So What"!

Well, I finally got around to compiling the results of our "So What" mini-poll. It was very close, but with one point more than Turn to Stone, the leader so far is Help Me Thru the Night. Here is the tabulation ...

1. Help Me Thru the Night - 30 points
2. Turn to Stone - 29 points
3. Welcome to the Club - 22 points
4. County Fair - 17 points
5. Time Out - 16 points
6. Song for Emma - 13 points
7. Falling Down/Pavane - 9 points
8. All Night Laundry Mat Blues - 8 points

Anyone else who wants to weigh in on this, feel free. I'll update the results if others post a list.

Sorry to screw up yur tabulations :P

Can't believe I've listened to this since i was 15....er, I mean 10, or 5
No wonder it's like woven into my soul.

1. Turn to Stone - probly my fav Joe song ever, his live version last month was outstanding

2. Help Me - spent a lot of time fantasizing while this played

3. Welcome to the Club - great version on his Nov tour, outstanding opening

4. Time Out - great lyrics

5. County Fair - beautiful feeling

6. Falling Down - moody, slinky, great feel

6 1/2 Pavanne - ditto

7. Song for Emma- beautiful, just too sad esp the whispers at the end

8. All Night Laundry Mat Blues - young Joe's new-found writing style n attitude I like it.

You don't have to add me in to your poll if it's too much effort, Dreamer. I wanted to share my list just for the heck of it.

1. Turn To Stone <--- brilliant song. Joe can really rock out the solo (especially when TTS was part of the Eagles setlist and Felder played the solo with him.) I'd love to hear it live someday.....
2. Help Me Thru The Night <--- I've never cared for this song until I watched Hell Freezes Over. Now I can't get enough of it!
3. Welcome To The Club <--- Probably among the first few Joe Walsh songs that got me hooked on his music
4. County Fair
5. Time Out
6. Falling Down
7. All Night Laundry Mat Blues
8. Song For Emma
9. Pavanne

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY SO WHAT!!!

Love this album, especially the awesome Turn to Stone. This is definitely one of my favorites of Joe's solo albums. I was trying to decide if I like this one or Analog Man better, but I think it's too soon to tell. Analog Man is still relatively new to me, so I'll probably have to wait and see if it stands up as well as So What over time.

My 2nd favorite Joe album! Fell asleep to it last night. What an amazing album!

Hard to pick a favorite song. Turn to Stone from Barnstorm is my all time fav. Joe song. The So What version is great too. I guess if I had to pick an all time favorite for this album it would be Country Fair Time Out Welcome to the Club Falling Down. After thinking about this for way to long I've figured out I can't pick a favorite off of this album because I love them all except Pavane & Laundry.

Turn to Stone is absolutely epic. My favorite of Joe's solo material, along with Help Me Thru the Night.
