Default SURVEY: Rank your favourite 4 Word Title Songs

RANK your TOP 5 songs that have 4 Word Titles

here is a list this time… (Joveski is starting to get the hang of it )


AFFAIR ON 8TH AVENUE
ALL THE LOVELY LADIES
BELLS OF THE EVENING
BEND IN THE WATER
BETTY CALLED ME IN
BLACK DAY IN JULY
CAN'T DEPEND ON LOVE
THE CIRCLE IS SMALL
COLD ON THE SHOULDER
DOES YOUR MOTHER KNOW
DON'T BEAT ME DOWN
DRINK YER GLASSES EMPTY
END OF ALL TIME
GHOSTS OF CAPE HORN
HEAVEN DON'T DESERVE ME
HEAVEN HELP THE DEVIL
HOME FROM THE FOREST
I'D DO IT AGAIN
I'D RATHER PRESS ON
IF CHILDREN HAD WINGS
IF THERE'S A REASON
IF YOU GOT IT
IF YOU NEED ME
I'LL PROVE MY LOVE
IS THERE ANYONE HOME
LONG WAY BACK HOME
LOOKING AT THE RAIN
LOVE AND MAPLE SYRUP
MINSTREL OF THE DAWN
MISTER ROCK OF AGES
THE MOUNTAINS AND MARYANN
MUCH TO MY SURPRISE
MY LOVE FOR YOU
NEVER SAY TRUST ME
NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT
ON THE HIGH SEAS
ONLY LOVE WOULD KNOW
A PAINTER PASSING THROUGH
RACE AMONG THE RUINS
SECOND CUP OF COFFEE
SIT DOWN YOUNG STRANGER
SOMEONE TO BELIEVE IN
SOMETIMES I DON'T MIND
SONGS THE MINSTREL SANG
SUMMER SIDE OF LIFE
TALKING IN YOUR SLEEP
THAT SAME OLD OBSESSION
THIS IS MY SONG
TOO LATE FOR PRAYIN'
TOO MUCH TO LOSE
THE WAY I FEEL
WHISPERS OF THE NORTH
YOU ARE WHAT I AM
YOU JUST GOTTA BE

Is There Anyone Home
My Love for You
Sometimes I Don't Mind
