Some nice stuff at the top, very "Folk Rock"... But some real “gag me” entries at the bottom. I only own 5 of these songs, and there’re not in those 7 through 10 slots!
Favorite trivia: Without You, was Harry Nilsson’s biggest hit. Though known primarily as a songwriter, he didn’t write this one, written and originally performed by Badfinger.
Today's photo, in honor of the #2 song this week: (singing) "I've been through the desert on a horse with no name".... The image is near Phoenix Arizona. IIRC it is around Squaw Peak.
