I'm guessing Let's Be Friends and Worlds Apart?

"Let's Be Friends (Skin to Skin)" has hip hop, "Worlds Apart" has foreign singers.

Worlds Apart sounds right, but my first thought on a 'hip hop' song from The Rising is The Fuse

@misty rain IDK why your post won’t quote here.  It looked like it did, but disappeared when I posted :(

Yes, but I thought he meant they were both in one song!  If he was talking about two songs, then yes, of course that makes sense!!! 

Ooooo.... I absolutely love Worlds Apart.

Wow, you must have a really solid marriage, otherwise.

I love S&G, but I fall asleep within the first couple of songs, and maybe this is what he is aiming at. :P

My Hometown is probably one of the better songs on BITU.

What is S2S?

Livin in the future is really catchy

Hunter of Invisible game is also really good.

Forgot to bring this up the other day but this played on ESR a couple days ago. On it's 5th anniversary. Have I ever mention how much i love this show? Bruce had to throw in Something in the Night at the four slot to cool everyone off before someone blew a gasket. 

High Lights: First three songs, This Depression

My thoughts (not Jimmy's):

Greetings: The Angel

TWIESS: Wild Billy's Circus Story

Born to Run: Night 

Darkness: I refuse to answer--there are no worst. But if you held a gun to my head, I'd probably say Streets of Fire, even though I love it.

The River: Crush on You 

Nebraska:  (ducking) My Father's House (I love it live so please don't hit me)

BITUSA: Working on the Frickin' Highway

TOL:  Spare Parts

TGOTJ:  My Best Was Never Good Enough? Not sure.

Human Touch:  Gloria's Eyes (That was easy)

Lucky Town:  The Big Muddy

The Rising:  Worlds Apart (And S2S is NOT NOT NOT Hip Hop. Good Lord.)

D&D:  Matamoros Banks

Magic: Devils Arcade 

WOAD: Good Eye and Outlaw Pete (tie)

Wrecking Ball: Belly of the Whale

Some of these were really hard. Others, like Gloria's Eyes,  were a no brainer. I love every song from TOL. That was really hard.
