    Swingtown is one of my personal favorites. Can't forget Jungle Love either.

    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Re: Top 5 Steve Miller songs

    Jet Airliner is probably my favorite song of his. Great live performance of it:

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e0mQ1ojc9PQ]Steve Miller Band Live From Chicago Jet Airliner - YouTube[/ame]

    When he and Kenny Chesney did the CMT Crossroads special that was pretty good stuff too. They did a pretty good version of The Joker where they had a little bit of a fiddle lick going in the background that added something extra to it. Unfortunately can't find any of those videos online anymore, looks like CMT took them down

    Obvious choices have already been stated. A few older good SMB songs are The Lovin Cup, My Dark Hour, and Steppin' Stone amongst others..

    Re: Top 5 Steve Miller songs

    "Serenade"
    "The Beauty of Time is That It's Snowing" (Children of the Future Album - all good)
    "I Wanna Be Loved"
    "The Stake"
    "Wild Mountain Honey"
    "Swingtown"


    Remember, you're unique. Just like everyone else.

    Until further notice, the Big 12 tournament is best. There's an experience here. Not just the teams -- the feel, the vibe, the establishments. Iowa State not only won the pregame -- filling the nearby Power & Light District -- it won the whole damn scene.
