1. Birdland
2. Gloria
3. Land
4. Free Money
5. Redondo Beach
6. Kimberly
7. Elegie
8. Break It Up

To me there is a huge gap between the top three songs, which are truly special, and the rest.

I never quite got into this album enough to rank each track, but I always considered Free Money the obvious stand-out (although Gloria, with its audacious opening line, would be a good second).

I think I had never listened the full album and it was a mistake, I had an a priori on Patti Smith without any reason.
An excellent surprise.

Great:
01 | Gloria
04 | Free Money

Good:
06 | Break It Up
03 | Birdland
07 | Land
02 | Redondo Beach
08 | Elegie

OK:
05 | Kimberly

"Horses" may very well be my least favorite album in the AM top 100. It does have a couple of personal favorite songs, but it also has a couple I really dislike (which, unfortunately, happen to be two of the most popular songs from the album).

04 | Free Money*
08 | Elegie*
05 | Kimberly
06 | Break It Up
07 | Land
02 | Redondo Beach
01 | Gloria
03 | Birdland

Personal favorites *
Overall album rating: 4.75

They give awards for that music? I thought just ear plugs. (Woody Allen in Annie Hall)
