This original list is dedicated in honor and respect to Madelyn, LizardKing99, with the songs having particular meaning to our wonderful friendship during the summer of 2015.

The Top Ten

1 We May Never Pass This Way Again - Seals & Crofts

Unfortunately, Admin felt it necessary to change the defining title of this list : "Top Songs Dedicated To A Popular Tenner and Past Friend", whereas titles which use member id nicknames seem to be acceptable - Billyv

2 Isn't Life Strange - The Moody Blues
3 If You Could Read My Mind - Gordon Lightfoot

Among the absolute best lyrics of all-time, and sung pretty damn well too.

"...you won't read that book again because the ending's just too hard to take..."

So beautiful and painful at the same time, as it captures so much feeling and thought accurately and directly - Billyv

Couldn't agree more, Billy. Arguably the most haunting expression of love gone wrong, ever. Exquisitely profound stream of consciousness. Almost Arthurian in ambiance. Some excellent cuts on this list, bud.

Happy 78th Birthday, (17 November, 2016) Mr. Lightfoot :). - Britgirl

4 It Makes No Difference - The Band

My goodness. This is the very song I was just about to introduce to someone:) Live from The Last Waltz even better.

Thought I might give this it's tenth listen. :) It kind of stays with you, being a really great song and all... - Britgirl

Rick Danko (RIP). Nuther good 'ol Canadian boy. Damn. That's three times, now. Must be losin' it.

5 Mind Mischief - Tame Impala
6 Just Like a Woman - Bob Dylan

Yep. Sure is. They're always thinkin' what isn't.

7 MR Tambourine Man - Bob Dylan

This is a beautiful song! - jmepa1234

8 I'm Not Supposed to Care - Gordon Lightfoot

Lightfoot; another good ol' Canadian boy. Now that's the second time ya heard me say it. Gettin' ta be a habit.
