Best Rory Gallagher Songs

The Top Ten

1 A Million Miles Away

From my opinion this is his greatest song. The guitar was good along with the vocals but the best thing was the ending keyboard riffs. Its very rare to see a pianist banging his head like a guitarist. - zxm

I feel this really ought to have been included in the top ten. Rory always played this one so differently but so perfectly. It's up there with Walk on Hot Coals for me.

2 I'm Not Awake Yet

A beautiful acoustic number from Rory. I loved it when it was released, I adore it now. RIP Rory.

I have always thought this to be an amazing piece of acoustic work from Rory.
