Top Ten Patti Smith Songs UPDATED

Punk's high priestess, Patti Smith, is a great amalgam of a bunch of things I love: ferocious live performance, reverence to literary icons, exceptionally well written lyrics, is unspeakably cool, and oh yeah, was married to Fred Sonic Smith of the MC5, which is cool enough on it's own. She is one of my biggest influences and a hero of the first degree.

So without further ado, my Top Ten Patti Smith Songs.

1. Dancing Barefoot
2. Ask The Angels
3. Distant Fingers
4. Gloria
5. Rock & Roll
6. Frederick
7. Because The Night
8. Summer Cannibals
9. Wing
10. My Blakean Year
