2 I Want You to Want Me

This is clearly cheap tricks best song! It is insanely catchy and simple. Most people don't understand that even simple beats are hard to come up with especially ones like I want you to want me.

The live version rocks so hard! NOTHING is better!

Pretty much everyone feels this way at some point in their life.

Nice simple classic. Wish there were more songs like that

3 The Flame

This is one of my all time favourite songs. Surrender isn't even that good. This is definitely Cheap Trick's best song.

My two year old son danced to this one in the store and we sang it together loud and clear as we danced in the living room -- a memory I'm keeping for ever!

This is clearly the Cheap Trick's number one song, how can it be in number two. The lyric and the tune of this song is too good.

This song is just magnificent. It has this amazing change of atmosphere - from totally positive to darker, almost haunting... Great song.

Whenever I suffer from insomnia, I can't stop thinking about this song.
