Okay, let´s try this one :)

1. Reasons Not To Be An Idiot - because the first FT-line that ever got stuck in my head was "just picture her after she´s had kids"
2. English Curse - because that was the first song I´ve heard of EKMB and I immediately thought this was one of the coolest things ever
3. Glory Hallelujah - because we are our own salvation army... and there is no God
4. Long Live The Queen - 'we live to dance another day' are wise words that I try to remember whenever I need to
5. I Still Believe - because it reminds me of what I already know, how important all of this is to me!
6. Father´s Day - 'when I was 16 I cut myself a mohawk because I wanted to walk the walk...' The 1st verse just got me, that´s it!
7. Nights Become Days - because 'we smoked in the woods when we were young', right?
8. Rivers - the only place I´ll lay my head down is by a German riverside. I hate a lot of my country while I´m here but when I leave for a longer time I´d miss it, come back and love to be home
9. Poetry Of The Deed - 'let´s grab life by the throat and live it to pieces'
10. Once We Were Anarchists - 'I´m young enough to be all pissed off but I´m old enough to be jaded'


Well, that was fun!

Hi Neil

Can you confirm 'I Am disappeared is your No1 & I can allocate it 10 points & work down your list to 1 point for I Still Believe?

I think that's your intention?

Bossman
yup, that's right.

Go on, give it a go, it's fun, not life & death (I think)

Keep 'em coming guys - over 100 replies to the Springsteen Top 20 in just 8 days! I know you all take Frank just as seriously.

I can say that after 24 votes, 69 different songs have been included in the rankings.

6 Songs have more than 50 points

A new song (not yet released) is comfortably inside the Top 20.

I'm surprised the leader is not Photosynthesis at the moment.

There are several songs I need to go& listen to again & it's good fun, so please keep them coming. Would love it if we could get 100 votes in, cos that would be quite representative I'd have thought.

If you read this, please ask any friends on here to vote.

There will be an update over the weekend (if a few more votes arrive)

Thanks Helen (watergirl) - I knew you'd turn up to play eventually. I like to think you've been thinking hard about it for days on end...lol

Please encourage any other members you know to play too.

Keep 'em coming everyone.

been hard to decide but here goes my top 10:
1 Ballad of me and my friends
2 Reasons not to be an idiot
3 Try this at home
4 One foot before the other
5 I knew Prufrock before he got famous
6 Wisdom Teeth
7 I still believe
8 Ladies of London Town
9 Redemption
10 If ever I stray

So hard to do that cos you have to leave out some great songs like long live the queen, photosynthesis and peggy sang the blues
crap at dancing and can't hold my drink...
Shows: Lincoln 24/11/12, Nottingham 09/02/14, Y Not Festival 03/08/14

Christ this is difficult.

1 - Faithful son
2 - If ever I stray
3 - photosynthesis
4 - ballad of me and my friends
5 - I am disappeared
6 - I still believe
7 - Try this at home
8 - Balthazar, impressario
9 - Peggy sang the blues
10 - Rivers

I think that's it. The top two (Faithful son and if ever i stray) are the ones I'm playing on my guitar the most at the moment anyway, which is always a fair indication.
So if ever a man should ask you for your business or your name, tell him to go and fuck himself and tell his friends to do the same.
