The Top Ten

1 I'd Rather Go Blind - Etta James
2 Can't You See - The Marshall Tucker Band
3 Can You See Me - The Jimi Hendrix Experience

I really don't think I could ever get tired of this perfect song. - Ned964

10 How You Gonna See Me Now - Alice Cooper

The Contenders

11 Pinball Wizard - The Who

Really hard to vote on this list. I went with this today because I can remember hearing (Seeing? ) this song/album for the first time. It was that day I became aware of the songwriting brilliance of Pete Townsend. - Ned964

It just struck me. I hate when the pop up list shows the wrong album associated with the song I'm choosing, and I really hate it when I hurriedly and inadvertently choose the flawed option. Anyway, isn't Pinball Wizard on Meaty Beaty Big and Bouncy? - Ned964

My bad, Pinball Wizard is on both Albums - Ned964

No problem. I would never have known your faux pas had you not said. Ha! - Britgirl

12 See a Little Light - Bob Mould

Great, inventive and funny list. I haven't thought of this album, "Workbook", in a while so I'm glad this list reminded me. In my opinion, this song is a highlight of one of my favorite albums. If I could have only 10 albums stranded on a deserted isle, this would be one of them. - Ned964

I was lucky enough to have seen Bob Mould live once, a solo show here in his hometown of Minneapolis. Anyway he stopped the show and asked the audience if he could stop playing for awhile, if we could just do a little Q&A as he was tired from touring and glad to be home. It was so cool, he answered maybe 15-20 questions, inculding one of my own, noted some requests and started playing again. It was nice to get some insight into the life of an artist I respect. - Ned964

13 Eyesight to the Blind - Sonny Boy Williamson II

...I never saw this until now (ironic) and also never heard it until now. Better late than never. I really love it. If it was added by whom I think it was added...thank you :) And if it wasn't added by whom I think then thank you to whomever did add it. - Britgirl
