The Top Ten
I'm glad to see this up towards the top. Gordon, in my opinion, is one of the greatest songwriters that ever lived. - Gg2000
It seems fitting to add here that great minds think alike. I also added both of those songs...so, no, of course I don't mind one bit that you did as well. - Britgirl
I couldn't resist... - Britgirl
Really wish I could add Homeward Bound by these but being a 60s song, it kind of defeats the object somewhat. Still Bridge Over Troubled Waters in such a lovely song. It's nice to see it here. - Britgirl
Greatest of all time.
I'm so happy to see this here! I've loved this song for such a long time. I love the simplicity and gentleness of it. I was torn for a second between this and If You Could Read My Mind (which has received many of my votes) so for a change, this lovely song gets my vote. Great choice. Great list. - Britgirl
Really romantic song. - truckturner
Don't have a yacht then just lay back and imagine. Lick the salt and chill!
Hey this is a rare classic you don't hear much of anymore from 82. I also like Bill LaBounty "Dream On" and "Livin' It Up" from his underrated self titled album from 82 also. It's good to be reminded of even the rarest gems.
Surprised that this wasn't added sooner. It was released in '71, so it just fits this list rather nicely. And it's also really good. - Britgirl
Love this song. Just able to make this list as it was released in 1989 (I think). - Britgirl
Nice. Really really nice. - Britgirl
