100 is a pretty big list. I was thinking about what would be considered the top 10 most well known & popular TP songs with the general public. For the casual fan, the radio listener, occasional concert goer. Then contrasted with my own favorites. Here's what I came up with.

GENERAL PUBLIC TOP 10

1. Free Fallin'

2. I Won't Back Down

3. Don't Come Around Here No More (memorable video)

4. Mary Jane's Last Dance

5. Runnin' Down A Dream

6. Refugee

7. American Girl

8. The Waiting

9. Wildflowers (seems to get quoted a lot, and get the most tattoos...)

10. Learning To Fly

Gosh that was hard. Honorable mentions: Here Comes My Girl, Listen to Her Heart, Into The Great Wide Open, Breakdown, Even The Losers...

 

MY TOP 10 (for today at least)...

1. Walls (Circus)

2. You Get Me High

3. Surrender

4. Kings Highway

5. To Find A Friend

6. Casa Dega

7. Scare Easy

8. Even The Losers

9. Good To Be King

10. Mary Jane's Last Dance

 

How about yours? Go with your first take, from memory....and don't overthink it. There's no wrong answer :)

Heck, I'll take a shot at this.  10 feels like an impossible task, but in no particular order:

When The Time Comes

The Wild One, Forever

Listen To Her Heart

Kings Road

Swingin'

The Waiting

Even The Losers

Down South

Wildflowers

 

And because I really can't narrow a personal list down to just 10, honorable mentions go to:

Time To Move On

American Girl

You Got Lucky

Keeping Me Alive

Surrender

Mary Jane's Last Dance

It's actually a surprisingly good list.  Obviously none of us would agree 100% with the choices, but there are a lot of deep tracks that show these people do know the songs pretty well.  And I'm glad that YDKHIF didn't rank any higher than 16th.

Here are some of the songs I happen to think stand out, but are not on that "Top 100" poll list:

Luna

Hurt

Magnolia

No Second Thoughts

Letting You Go

The Criminal Kind

Deliver Me

The Same Old You (of course)

Mary’s New Car

Think About Me

All Mixed Up

Ain’t Love Strange

How Many More Days

Dark of The Sun

Trailer

Keeping Me Alive

Accused of Love

You And Me

Turn This Car Around

Night Driver

Home

American Dream Part B

Red River

All You Can Carry
