Best Grand Funk Railroad Songs

The Top Ten

1 I'm Your Captain

It is very hard for me to pick the best Grand Funk song as I have so many, however I'm Your Captain/Closer To Home hits me in so many different ways, musically, emotionally, etc. That I pick it number 1. That band was awesome & were extremely underrated. Still listen to all of their albums frequently.

This is absolutely epic in every possible way a song can be. IT starts quiet, builds strong, has a memorable lull, ends with one of the best possible fades in music. Breathtaking!

One of the "Greatest" Rock Bands Ever...

YES! I was hoping to see this one at Number 1. Super song.

2 Inside Looking Out

I remember walking into our local YMCA in the day and hearing this coming of the PA system. Somebody had it on as background music whilst doing some repair work. I was about 14 years of age and was transfixed by the power of the song. I think this was the moment I fell in love with 'Rock ' Music. It still has that effect on me now. I had never heard of this band, as they were'nt played a lotmon the UK radio stations, and I'd have to agree that they are still a very underrated band.

My favorite band. Got turned on to them around 1969. Haven"t stopped rocking" with them since. Definitely, I believe, the best band ever. You"re not gonna hear or see a better group of MUSICIANS.

My all time favorite since I bought the Paranoid album the day it was released!

Power is the word for this song. Still sounds good today.

6 Heartbreaker

The live version of Heartbreaker is super. Endless energy!

I say it's the best song they ever did! Talk about "feeling" and "in the groove", This is surely IT! ~!

7 T.N.U.C.

One of the Best Drumming solos ever! Long live Don Brewer and Grand Funk Railroad!

8 Gimme Shelter

Used to come on late at night give me chills

9 Sin's a Good Man's Brother

Wonderful song, great for listening, can't get it out of my head

I think 'Bad time' was an unforgettable quality hit. But not a real rockhit.

13 Paranoid

Pure metal rock at its best... Nobody could touch GFR in concert and this song is a prime example of a power trio!

14 The Loco-Motion
15 Footstompin' Music
16 Rock N' Roll Soul

The best of them solo is in this song

17 Mr. Limousine Driver

Great song inside looking out should be at the top of every play list

18 Mean Mistreater

The best their stuff. It's like the music of my soul. I don't even like so much this band, but this song... Really perfect.

19 Nothing Is the Same
20 Walk Like a Man
21 Out to Get You
22 Comfort Me
23 I Come Tumblin'

The BEST Rock song ever to me. Mark, Don and Mel play withsuch a grooving heavy passion. Don screaming vin the background during Mel's solo makes me go crazy with him.I don't care what anyone says or how they feel about it. Mark's voice and the harmonies are unsurpassed. "Upsetter played before it is very groovy indeed.

It's all about how the chemistry of these three men recorded together. There has been no other musician in the day of their music in the 70's than Don Brewer.

Listen to this song on big speakers, loud, and hear Mark's great vocals and guitar playing. Still gets my adrenaline going!

24 Wait for Me

This is an amazing piece of music.

25 Loneliness

Ranks right up there with Closer to home, as one of the top ten songs in rock history. This is a message tune for those who will listen. The build up with the orchestra, simply outstanding!

26 In Need

For me thi is the best song ever. Grand Funk the best rock band ever!

I don't how this song is not on the top from this list

27 The Railroad

Just a perfect song. Mark's acappella intro vocals sets this song over the top alone. Plays on words, great guitar solo, and mark goes so high at the end of the song "workin for the railroad yaeah. Nothing but greatness.

28 Time Machine
29 I Can Feel Him In the Morning

To me, this is d tract that will live forever in my mind. It has a rhythm, it has a peculiar pace. It is exquisite rock n roll. It is vintage Grandfunk. Long live Grand funk!

30 To Get Back In
31 Winter and My Soul
32 Into the Sun
33 Are You Ready
34 Destitute and Losin

This song is truly the Ultimate Rarity that belongs in the Top 10

35 Feeling Alright

By far the best cover of that song. Love Traffic, but their original puts me to sleep. GFR rocks it!

36 Take Me

Why this song isn't on the list come on.
