Ranking EC: Your Favorite 15


LC

Recommended Posts

Since we have a "Ranking the Raspberries" thread, how about a new "Ranking Eric Carmen" thread?

Because Eric has a couple more albums and a few-odd singles more than Raspberries, let's make this list 15 instead of 10. Oh, and no fair choosing unreleased songs (although "Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea" and "Cindy in the Wind" would probably squeeze onto mine).

Anyway, my favorite 15 Eric solo recordings (as of right now):

1. Boats Against the Current
2. Desperate Fools
3. All By Myself
4. Never Gonna Fall in Love Again
5. Nowhere to Hide
6. Sunrise
7. My Girl
8. It Hurts Too Much
9. Love Is All That Matters
10. She Remembered
11. She Did It
12. Someday
13. The Way We Used to Be
14. Run Away
15. Walk Away Renee

Yes, fans, this is tough! Hardest to leave off: Marathon Man, All For Love, Lost in the Shuffle, and I Wanna Hear It from Your Lips.

15 is too many...it dilutes the purpose (who started this thread anyway??!!) :angry:

Oh yeah, it was LC...we must make allowances for LC...with Al Gore front and center these days, LC's estrogen levels are kinda over the top.. ;)

Anyway, here's my list (10):

1. Boats Against The Current
2. My Girl
3. Sunrise
4. Love Is All That Matters
5. No Hard Feelings
6. Inside Story
7. Everything
8. Run Away
9. Heavan Can Wait
10. Never Gonna Fall In Love Again

OK, you can lock the thread now, any further posts will be superfluous..

:cool:

You're in a smart-a** mood, my friend, aren't you?

A) Leave Al Gore alone. He ought to be our next president, but frankly, the American people don't deserve him!

:angry: Estrogen levels? Ouch.

C) No, 15 is about right, because there's a bigger body of Eric solo work than Raspberries work, so...

D) ... Come on -- five more selections. Nos. 11-15. Hand 'em over. Or you'll be subject to an Al Gore YouTube posting in your e-mail box.

E) Besides, who said this thread had a purpose, anyway?

:P

How I can make a list like this and not include "Make Me Lose Control", "She Did It", or "That's Rock N' Roll", all songs that are frequently cranked on the CD player, is killing me.

The folks down there already had him [Al] as their President...and then...all of a sudden...the computers in Florida coughed/sputtered/belched and farted out a result that didn't correspond with how people in the 'Sunshine State' ACTUALLY voted. :(

As for my top 15 Eric songs...unless I can include those he did with the rest of the 'boys'...it won't be accurate cause SOME of my favourite Eric songs aren't 'solos'. :cool:
