Can you think of a song with a "man" written all over it?


  1. From an anonymous man: Surprisingly, I would put #8 near the top of the list. It’s probably my favorite Michael Jackson song. I am quite fond of most the others on the list, including the oft-maligned (at least on this board) “Piano Man” except for “Better Man” and “Real Man”, neither of which I very familiar with (unless I give them another listen). One of my favorites is “Simple Man” by Graham Nash (w/Crosby). The most obvious ones missing from the list for me is “For Everyman” by JB, although it probably doesn’t technically qualify as a “man” song, and “Old Man” (but “Southern Man” is a good choice). A couple of others that I’m sure will cause reactions from some on this board - “Ramblin’ Man” and the briliiantly philosophical “Back Door Man” (hahaha).

  2. Just found another Solitary Man, Neil Diamond
