1. Buckets of Rain
2. Tangled Up In Blue
3. It's All Over Now Baby Blue
4. Visions of Johanna
5. Simple Twist of Fate
6. It Takes A Lot To Laugh....*

It's tough to limit it to 5. Like a Rolling Stone, Queen Jane, Girl From the North Country, Lonesome Death of Hattie Carrol, Only A Pawn In Their Game...

Top album is Blood On The Tracks though. No hesitation there.

*-I forgot this song originally. TOo many to list a top 5.

Five is hard but so would 10 or 20.

1. I Want You
2. Sara
3. I Don't Believe You (Last Waltz Version)
4. Your a Big Girl Now
5. Subterranean Homesick Blues

Album: I would go with Blonde on Blonde but I would be more than happy with Blood On the Tracks.
Underrated Album: Street Legal
