The Top Ten

We May Never Pass This Way Again - Seals & Crofts We May Never Pass This Way Again - Seals & Crofts Cover Art
If You Could Read My Mind - Gordon Lightfoot If You Could Read My Mind - Gordon Lightfoot Cover Art

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

Isn't Life Strange - The Moody Blues Isn't Life Strange - The Moody Blues Cover Art
It Makes No Difference - The Band It Makes No Difference - The Band Cover Art

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

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

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