You know, the rock band from the 70s and 80s (mostly). What is your favorite tune?

For me, still has to be Something About You and Peace of Mind from the first album (yes, because it was an album then).

Let me tell you story 'bout a man named Charlie…

In the spirit of a local radio station, every post on this topic needs to be repeated at least three times per day. Similarly, any posts about Kansas need to be repeated in the same fashion.

How can you tell them apart?

I hijack this thread. The best Boston song is by the J Geils Band, (Ain't Nothin' but a) House Party.

I used to love "A Man I'll Never Be" from Don't Look Back. Generally not my favorite band.

Used to Bad News, Something About You, and Feelin' Satisfied. Hard to choose. I loved all the Boston songs.

I like the songs done by Beacon Street Union….because Beacon Street is located ….(wait for it) …..IN Boston.

Let me tell you story 'bout a man named Charlie…

"He may ride forever through the streets of Boston.
He's the man who never returned."

Yikes. How strange that I can recall that song!

But to answer the question, it was "More Than A Feeling" that really launched them into stardom.

I always loved Foreplay/Longtime.
