Best Bob Seger Songs List

#1 Old Time Rock and Roll
Released in 1979 on the album Stranger in Town

The song may be best known for being in Tom Cruise’s film Risky Business. Even though the song only reached number twenty-eight on the Billboard Hot 100, the song is played at many dance parties while describing the rock and roll of yesteryear.

Most Meaningful Lyrics:

Old time rock and roll
That kinda music just soothes the soul
I reminisce about the days of old
With that old time rock and roll

#2 Turn The Page
Released in 1973 on the album Back in ’72

The song would be number one if it weren’t for the popularity of our #1 song. The song was written just before Seger’s long break from touring while describing life on the road as a musician. The song was later covered by Metallica as a popular version of “Turn The Page”.

Most Meaningful Lyrics:

There I am
Up on the stage
Here I go
Playin’ the star again
There I go
Turn the page

#3 Against The Wind
Released in 1980 on the album Against the Wind

Against the wind
We were runnin’ against the wind
We were young and strong, we were runnin’ against the wind

#4 Night Moves
Released in 1976 on the album Night Moves

The song describes Michigan in the early 1960s. The song was Seger’s first highest-charting song on the Billboard Hot 100 peaking at number four.

I awoke last night to the sound of thunder
How far off I sat and wondered
Started humming a song from 1962
Ain’t it funny how the night moves

#5 Still the Same
Released in 1978 on the album Stranger in Town

Most Meaningful Lyrics:

No one standing in your way
Turning on the charm
Long enough to get you by
You’re still the same
You still aim high

Most Meaningful Lyrics:

We never even said a word,
we just walked out and got on that bike
And we rolled
And we rolled clean out of sight

#7 Like A Rock
Released in 1986 on the album Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band

The song is featured in Chevrolet commercials describing their trucks.

Most Meaningful Lyrics:

Working for peanuts
Not a dime to spare
But I was lean and
Solid everywhere

#8 Katmandu

Going to Katmandu
Up to the mountains
Where I’m going to
And if I ever get out of here
That’s what I’m gonna do

You’re high above me now, you’re wild and free, ah but
Someday lady you’ll accomp’ny me

#10 Mainstreet
Released in 1977 on the album Night Moves

The song is written for a street where Seger grew up in Michigan.

Most Meaningful Lyrics:

Unlike all the other ladies
She looked so young and sweet
As she made her alone down that empty street
Down on mainstreet
