    I'd take "Gone" over "Two Words." That may be my favorite rap song ever ...

    Bruce -- all live versions, of course:

    1) Thunder Road -- full band, Bruce letting the audience sing "show a little faith", Big Man hitting the solo

    2) Incident on 57th Street -- Main Point style

    3) After much thought -- Badlands -- Reunion Tour style.

    Just missing out -- Promised Land -- solo like on the Joad or D&D tour, Long Time Comin' -- D&D tour style

    While I agree on the Bob, I have to say that you are forgetting some great Sublime tunes

    From the Acoustic album:

    1. Pool Shark
    2. Mary
    3. Guava Jelly/ This Train

    1. Little District
    2. Freeway Time in L.A. County Jail
    and finally 3. Rivers of Babylon

    That was the greatest album they ever released, though the underground Black album with Snoop Dogg on Summertime was a good one too

    Amarillo by Morning may be my favorite country song by anyone, and even though George has about 60 No. 1 singles, that isn't one of them.
