Top Ten Best Bob Seger Songs


The Top Ten

1 Night Moves

First three chords always make me smile when this song comes on the radio. Pure nostalgia. Easily Segers best song, not that all the others arent good either.

I was born in 1998 and I love this song. 17 now and this song is still my favorite. No matter the age, this song is a pure classic and one of the best ever

The breakdown in the song like "LORD, I REMEMBER! LORD, I REMEMBER! ".. Is just the core of this masterpiece. Far out his voice is fabulous.

Ahhh the memories... This song was my anthem when I was 18. After dropping my girlfriend off and heading home in my black Trans Am, I can still feel that cool wind blowing with the T-tops off... and Night Moves playing on the stereo. Damn...

2 Turn the Page

Not only Metallica, also covered by Waylon Jennings. What that means is that hard rockers, mainstream rockers, and even country fans relate to this song. I play guitar at a few restaurants in the Minneapolis area, and this song goes over well with all ages.

I've been a Bob Seger fan for thirty-seven years. I love all his songs and to this day say Hollywood Nights is the Greatest Album of all time. It doesn't have a bad song on it.

Lyrics music and overall a great song. Covered by Metallica. Still is a hit

My for. Cable company he stay on the road

3 Against the Wind

Each time I hear a song on the radio like Nicki Minaj's or Justin Bieber's, I feel an urgent need to clean my ears out with some REAL music! This song is the epitome of REAL music, meaningful beautiful lyrics, amazing music with the guitar and piano, and a great voice.

Against the wind is one of the BEST songs from Bob Seger, and he is brilliant for creating such a master piece

For me bob was it late 70s and all of the 80s and to this day. The best ever

Every time I hear this song it brings me right back to my mid teens. As with almost all of Bobs songs, the lyrics are so real.. I agree with another post... ''Wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then.." it doesn't get any better or any more real than that

5 We've Got Tonight

Only bob Seeger song I like. By far his best

The only song I've heard by him that I don't like. - Britgirl

6 Main Street

I remember standing on the corner at midnight trying to get my courage up... Best hooker song ever... Haha

Should be #1. I know Turn the Page is compelling but come on who hasn't thought his thoughts in this song?

The riff is too good, and so are the lyrics.

7 Like A Rock

Chevy Silverado commercials.

This is probably one of the top 10 songs ever made. But you have to be older than 35 and understand the lyrics to fully appreciate it.
Listen to it again and you will agree that this is the number one.

This is #1? For me gotta love the solos great tune

Being the same age a Bob I ca relate to every word in this song. It really put your life in order as to how fast it goes by. To me this is his biggest hit. How ever I love every song he has ever sang

8 Hollywood Nights

Best song for cruising down the highway!

You gotta have a great voice to sing this song

9 The Fire Inside

tHE. Best!

So many good Bob Seger songs, this one, Mainstreet, Hollywood Nights are all classics.

Lyrics and emotion in his voice are almost unparalleled. Haunting real and so intense, just let this song burn you up, we all need this reminder.

Not played much on the radio but fantastic.

10 Roll Me Away

Such a hard choice between so many awesome songs, it could easily be -turn the page-like a rock- against the wind-you'll accomp'ny me- or many others. For me I like the freedom of "roll me away"

The Contenders

11 Still the Same

Way better than Hollywood Nights, should be top 5.

Way too many great Bob songs but this is my favorite. Not all stories have a happy ending and this song is indicative of that.

There is a kid in Phoenix that does an amazing cover! I actually like his cover better than the original, but I will take good ol' Bob's anytime.

The trick you said is never play the game too long.

12 You'll Accomp'ny Me

This was me and my first wife song be for we were married. Great song

So good

13 Beautiful Loser

Used in Supernatural enough said

14 Blue Monday

Always will be a very definite favourite. It's so happy and makes me smile. It's featured on the Road House film (starring Patrick Swayze) soundtrack. - Britgirl

15 Travelin' Man

Live bullet version is my favorite song, took over turn the Led Zeppelins over the hills and far away is overcoming stairway to heaven. His best sang song, and opens up very well. Silver bullet band! Not taking anything away from bob. It was just great to see a guy put 15 good years in and find the rest of the pieces. He did just that!

16 Her Strut

Classic Seger! There isn't a bad Seger song is there? Heard a lot of karaoke singers, but no one has ever been able to capture that Seger voice

17 Rock and Roll Never Forgets

No Seger song defines the beat and timelessness of rock and roll better than this track off of the "Night Moves" album. - c0mf0rta61ynum6

18 Trying to Live My Life Without You
19 Til It Shines

Love this song. But can't find it in beats music or iTunes. Any suggestions? Thanks

22 Lonely is the Night
23 Living Inside My Heart
24 Famous Final Scene

This song is literally my favourite all time song and I ain't bragging. Just can't believe, it's frigging no.18. It's so soothing and spiritually uplifting. Just listen to this song and see the lyrics, and tell me if you don't fall in love with this song.

25 Rambin Gamblin Man

Roll me away has got to be the top 3
Truly a classic seger song the unofficial biker anthem and certainly should amoung the top ten

Boys, this is how you crank out a fun rock jam!

31 Understanding

Should be in top 5

32 No Man's Land

Great to see No Man's Land on this list. I'm not saying it's top ten because there's so many great Seger songs to choose from, but it's my favorite song off Against the Wind, and the song's message is so true.
