There was recently a thread on the top Clapton songs; how about Jeff Beck?

Classic Rock magazine offers their picks:

This is probably impossible. Tough to argue with the top 4. And 6-8 I guess. But they largely ignored the later part of his career, so I might sub a few out from the last two on the list anyway.

Just throwing some others out there in no particular order:

Shapes of Things (might be one too many from Truth for the top 10 list)

Train Kept a Rolling (was that more of a Jimmy Page song? I still think of it as a Beck tune for some reason)

Blue Wind on Wired.

Seems like big omissions from There and Back (Star Cycle or The Pump?)

And Guitar Shop. Behind the Veil isn't much as a song, but rather impressive performance. Big Block and Where Were You are excellent tunes though.

'Morning Dew' with Rod Stewart singing on the 'Truth' album is a vintage favorite of mine.

If we're going to go with personal faves rather than most influential, I would skip "Happenings 10 Years Time Ago," "Heart Full of Soul," and "I Can't Give Back the Love I Feel."

I have overplayed "Going Down," but I can't blame el Becko for that.

I too would add "Blue Wind" and then "Let Me Love You" from Truth, "Savoy" from Guitar Shop, and "You Know What I Mean" from Blow by Blow.

I'm partial (for the most part) to Blow by Bklow, Wired, and There and Back.

Definitely Maybe
Blue Wind
Space Boogie
Sophie
Star Cycle
The Pump
Freeway Jam
Scatterbrain
The Golden Road
Cause We've Ended as Lovers
Where Were You (greatest whammy bar performance of all time as far as I'm concerned)

Oops, that was eleven.
