Well my list would have to include Apache as that was what inspired me to try and learn to play the guitar. Mr Weedon failed to do it in a day though.

Apache
Wonderful Land
Las Tres Carabelas (Three Galleons)
Genie With The Light Brown Lamp
Sweet Dreams
Blue Star
The Breeze And I
Stardust

Apache is... as with the most of us, the one that starts it all...for me and it cost me a second house...on records,video tapes,cd's,dvd's,guitars,amps,echo's merchandise,tickets,travelling etc. :mrgreen:
But I wouldn't miss it for all the money in the world, it gave such a lot of pleasure and joy to start me playing and meet like-minded people ! :D

I'd take forever to whittle it down to eight, so I'd probably start with all the ones that made me drool as a teenager.

1. Apache
2. F.B.I.
3. Man of Mystery
4. The Stranger
5. The Savage
6. Theme from Shane
7. Mustang
8. Find me a Golden Street

Next eight..........................

And the remainder with one vote each.

It seems we all have our favourites which are not '"The Standards" which is quite refreshing, in that we are each keeping the boys impressive catalogue alive.

Clearly 'Mustang' should have been a single?!
