From best to well...good, they are all excellent songs that have stood the test of time

Living With The Ghost
A Teardrop To The Sea
I Will Drive You Home
Who Would You Die For
Luv Can
Fingerprints
This House Is Not For Sale
When We Were Us
Scars On This Guitar
God Bless This Mess
Rollercoaster
The Devil's In The Temple
We Don't Run

Additional tracks
Real Love
Blood In The Water, which should be in the top 5 but I just can't get over the bridge so it gets relegated to bonus track

I obviously didn't like 2020 but it's a way better album than WAN and just slightly worse than TC so things are not as bleak (album-wise) as they seem

Musically or lyrically? What's up with the bridge?

I am always surprised by how many people dislike The Circle.

What I wasn't paying much attention to was how the quality of the writing went down after Richie left. When he left most people were just talking about his singing voice not being there. However, compare those songs people listed with the earlier songs when Ritchie was there--to me the earlier songs win out easily.

1. Teardrop to the sea
2. We don't run
3. Luv can
4. Fingerprints
5. Living with the ghost
6. Labor of love
7. God bless this mess
8. Beautiful drug
9. Story of love
10. Lower the flag
11. Blood in the water
12. Unbroken

That's quite a consistent album in my opinion, though I know I'm the only one around who likes Unbroken 😂

I've been thinking about something like this for some time. However, I always get stuck at the point of deciding whether to put there all my favourite songs or to create an actual album..

Default The best of the Richie-less years

Iím trying to follow BJ classic album structure: First single as track #2, followed by a groovy song and then a ballad. Also, a ballad to end as well and a jewel as bonus track.

1. Beautiful drug
2. We donít run
3. Brothers in arms
4. Fingerprints
5. Born again tomorrow
6. Living with the ghost
7. Let it rain
8. Scars on this guitar
9. Who would you die for
10. This house is not for sale
11. I will drive you home
12. Luv can

Bonus tracks:
A teardrop to the sea
Devilís in the temple
Blood in the water (great song, but it sounds too much as a Dry County v. 2020 to me)

I really hate you!!!

For three days I've been trying to put together an album but it's impossible. I'm down to 17 tracks and I've already excluded songs I like and want them there.

Anyway - any ideas what the title might be?
