    1. I am a Rock.
    2. America

    4. Bridge over Troubled Water
    5. Mrs Robinson
    6. Boy in the Bubble

    There`ll be others-some good ones in 2006 for example-but if anyone has written a better song than "America" for the iPod when you get off the plane-let me know.
    Bridge Over Troubled Water will be listened to wherever ears are open to music...time will rate him more than Dylan with only Cohen and Mitchell up there with him.

  3. Tend to agree with you Chris on all points, including Cohen and Mitchell. Can I add "The Boxer" to that list?
