Greatest Lynyrd Skynyrd Songs

The Top Ten

1 Free Bird Free Bird Cover Art

If you don't know this song, you don't know the rock!

The song incarnation of freedom : lyrics about a free bird, a solo that makes you feel like you're flying free. The best song ever to me.

Best song I've listened to so far. Great music and great lyrics, and the solo at the end part is definitely one of the best ones I've ever heard. Then I read about everything that happened to the band members and it is so sad. They should've been around much longer

Cool Slide Guitar and very nice solo with two guitars at the end!

2 Simple Man Simple Man Cover Art

A must listen song! The lyrics are great. If you haven't listened this song you haven't listened to lynyrd skynyrd! I think it's better than free bird..

Simple Man. The song that non-superficial fans of Lynyrd Skynyrd think of when they think about the band. While "Freebird" and "Sweet Home Alabama" are good songs in and of themselves, "Simple Man" is in a league of its own. It says everything that needs to be said, and is a true pouring-out of the heart by Van Zandt. A classic.

My all-time favorite song. Nothing will ever top it in my mind.

An amazing song of wisdom and hope for any young man. This one stirs your soul. Great solo and bridge.

3 Sweet Home Alabama Sweet Home Alabama Cover Art

Best Song Ever, makes my Heart Melt, just listening to this song takes me to Alabama. This Should be in number one!

Good classical number... Would like to listen more from this band... Feel great when listen em all alone and sober

Lynyrd Skynyrd's best, must be number 1, Free Bird is great but Sweet Home Alabama takes the prize for me, seamless, fantasical and sublimely-composed are the list of three words which describe this song. Rock on L-S!

I can't choose between Free Bird and Sweet Home Alabama! But I'm gonna go with Sweet Home, because it has that classic rich America feel to it.

4 Tuesday's Gone Tuesday's Gone Cover Art

This song is beautifully performed, the guitar is very well played, and this song always reminds me of sitting in a car, going along the road while its raining. Once again, this song is amazing and am surprised that this song is not number one.

The only reason this song isn't number one is because nobody has listened to it. A lot of their "online" fan base ( I use that word carefully ) has stumbled across the first 3 songs ( Free Bird, Sweet Home Alabama & Simple Man ). They are great songs in their own perspective but this tune... Is the good stuff.

This is my favorite song of all time. It displays the hardship of loss in such a beautiful way. Ronnie sings mournfully, but still with anticipation of the future. Their best song by far...

This song just evokes a different kind of emotion. You feel sad and happy at the same time. This song is a beautiful piece of art.

5 That Smell That Smell Cover Art

The culmination of all the unique qualities that made Skynyrd special: The prominent punch of Leon's bass with AP's rolling drums, the genuineness of Ronnie's lyrics, the unbelievable guitar work throughout and the girls singing for emphasis in the background make this song their greatest. The definitive Skynyrd song that NO ONE would even consider attempting to cover, much like Saturday Night Special.

Excellent and energetic

May not be their best, but it is certainly my favorite. I also love Saturday Night Special.

The guitar parts are the best they ever did in my opinion

6 Gimme Three Steps Gimme Three Steps Cover Art

Ahh... Great song, the first billion times I heard it... But, you can't tell me there aren't at least a dozen greater Skynyrd songs than this... If I never heard "3 Steps" again, I'll be happy.

Should be higher up on list

7 Saturday Night Special Saturday Night Special Cover Art

Greatest song in the world, should be number 1

This song is EXTREEMLY groovy...

8 Call Me the Breeze Call Me the Breeze Cover Art

This song is the best

JJ Cale wrote it and performed it, but Skynyrd's version rocks it!

9 What's Your Name? What's Your Name? Cover Art

Great band

"...little girl what's your name? "
Answer: I am a gal named Huh.

10 Gimme Back My Bullets Gimme Back My Bullets Cover Art

Blown away chills the first time I heard this... And probably the same every time afterwards. Amazing underrated guitar work and singing. One of the best.

So difficult to choose as so many. This is distinctive Skynyrd - not just song as Ronnie so well backed up by the Honkettes, but instrumentally as well. I love Freebird and SHA but about time those yet to get fully into Skynyrd enjoyed the wider catalogue.

The Contenders

11 The Ballad of Curtis Loew The Ballad of Curtis Loew Cover Art

I love this song. it's a great ballad.

That keyboard solo... WOW Billy Powell rocks

Definitely top 5. Great song couldn't ask for more.

Way better than that Sweet Home Alabama cheese.

12 Still Unbroken Still Unbroken Cover Art

Man listen to this one from their album god guns!
This is absolutely their best and its the most amazing lyrics ever by lynyrd skynyrd!
I'm sure you guys will vote after listening to this one!
Just hear it once!

I love that song. This song makes me something lonely. When I listen to that music, I miss someone. I don't know who is appeared in my mind, boy or girl? I think it may be a girl. I sometimes cry when I listen to that music.

WWE Breaking Point & WWE Smackdown VS Raw 2010

Beautiful lyrics
This is like motivation song. :-)

13 I Know a Little I Know a Little Cover Art

Best skynyrd guitar song

14 I Never Dreamed I Never Dreamed Cover Art

It is a really good song. Yet really under rated

This masterpiece is just a little display of Gaines incredible composing potential. Cannot listen to this without feeling goosepimples. Wonderful! Thanks Skynyrd for everything!

yes

15 Comin' Home Comin' Home Cover Art

Should be in top 5

16 On the Hunt On the Hunt Cover Art

Underrated song, that doesn't get enough air or concert play. But what do I know? All their songs should be played everyday, all the time. Simply awesome!

I love most all their songs but this one really stands out.

If you don't think on the hunt is up there and one of the best songs youv ever heard you ain't no fan

17 You Got that Right You Got that Right Cover Art

So underplayed.. This is like the anthem of any down to earth partier

This is their greatest recording. Steve Gaines was a phenom.

As usual another Skynyrd hit! Great Rock and Roll!

This stuff they are turning out today is CRAP!

I've tried listening to it but there's nothing there! NO BEAT, NO LYRICS,
NO ROCK & ROLL,

Steve Gaines enough said.

18 One More Time One More Time Cover Art

Great song, a little more produced than most Skynyrd songs, but awesome. The guitar riff in the middle is incredible

19 I Need You I Need You Cover Art

Great, bluesy opening by Ed, Gary, and Allen

It has a lot meaning PERSONALLY!

In the top 10!

20 All I Can Do is Write About It All I Can Do is Write About It Cover Art

This is the classic that resonates with me most next to Freebird of course.

21 Tomorrow's Goodbye Tomorrow's Goodbye Cover Art

Not just my favourite Lynyrd Skynyrd song, but possibly my favourite song of everyone.
