Hi Richard....Thankyou for your commentary...and I'm impressed at all the replies here....and like Nicole mentioned...i may have to revise my list- lol !!! I'd do better with a list for a Top @0 of their songs, as after the fact, while reading other replies, songs I 'd forgotten about or just couldn't recall them at the time, jumped out at me now.....

Anyhow, a great topic piece going here...Kudos :)

Thanks for your list PapaJ. You're the first to vote for a People like us track. Good choice though! Nicole and Cassfan, if you want to revise your list, no problem! It is difficult voting for only 10, and there were a few I hated leaving out, such as No salt on her tail and My heart stood still! TM&TP are to blame for making this difficult. They recorded too many great tracks! ;) Rich.

This poll is starting to take shape! It would be really nice if we could here from some of our newer members as to their top ten favorites also. Your opinion counts, and this poll will benefit all of us. Do it!

You're welcome, Richard. Even though most would agree that "People Like Us" is not the best M & P album, I think there are some great songs on there, like "Snowqueen," the title track, "Pearl," and "Step Out." I also like "No Salt on Her Tail" and "My Heart Stood Still." If it was a top 20 list, those would be included, as well as "Creeque Alley" "Did You Ever You Want to Cry," "Dancing Bear," among others.

Thanks Ignasi,
great choice of #2. ;) Great to see Got a feelin on the scoreboard at last!
8 lists so far. I'll post some results when we've had a couple more, and update them every so often. Rich.

Hi everyone. Sorry for the lack of posts lately; I've been in hospital for a month.
here goes:

1. Somebody Groovy
2. Sing For Your Supper
3. Spanish Harlem
4. Creeque Alley
5. Got A Feelin'
6. 12:30
7. Straight Shooter
8. California Dreamin'
9. Words Of Love
10.Dedicated To the One I Love

That wasn't easy! It seems for a group with only 5 albums, they have an avalanche of great songs!
