thumbup Favorite Title Tracks
« Thread started on: May 22nd, 2016, 2:56pm »

What it says on the tin. Doesn't have to be your favorite artists or albums... just your favorite Title Tracks, in list form or whatever. You prog people or obscure-music-loving folks, feel free to post the artist's name if you wish. To the best of my reckoning, and a quick spin through my iTunes library, here's mine:

1. Wish You Were Here
2. Heroes
3. Born To Run
4. Close To The Edge
5. The Low Spark Of High-Heeled Boys
6. Let It Be
7. Terrapin Station
8. Quadrophenia
9. Hotel California
10. The Soul Cages
11. All Things Must Pass
12. Imagine
13. The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway
14. The Royal Scam
15. Station To Station
16. Madman Across The Water
17. Purple Rain
18. Excitable Boy
19. Blaze Of Glory
20. American Pie

cool
