You forgot one "Please Don't Tell Me How The Story Ends". Never's just the echo of forever. Please!!! Just that line alone qualifies the song as a best pick..
I like The Pilgrim? See him wasted on the sidewalk in his jacket and his jeans, wearing yesterday's misfortunes like a smile..... the imagery there....
This wonderful man manages to capture every one of life’s moments in his songs. Over the past 40 some years my favourite has changed according to the circumstances and I would be hard pushed to narrow the list down to even 20! I 💜💜 Kris.
he's never written a bad song. it's about time people get it. throughout my life, i was trying to turn my friends on to him, with little success. Not a lot of people give a damn about the poetry in music, they just want a beat or an overblown singing style. Kris is a national treasure.
I love all of Kris' songs and IMO I believe his versions are the best. My pics would also include his duets with Rita. Rain, Give it time to be tender and (my favourite) I'd rather be sorry.
damn hard to pick just five songs. He has about a thousand brilliant ones. Current favourite: Casey´s last ride
Must be own experience that makes a beer on Sunday morning 'not bad, so I had one more for dessert' and when he found his 'cleanest dirty shirt'.
Imagine him with a hangover, smiling while he makes a mental note of these things.
As with all Great Artists, you will see your favourites change over time I hope.
After all, his Greatest Hits is not a single with an odd B-side...
Arguably the best poet/songwriter of all time.
I would have left out why me and included my all time favourite Darbys Castle or Jody and the Kid . Too hard to pick anyway
They needed to include The Pilgrim, Chapter 33, Who’s to Bless and Who’s to Blame, and From the Bottle to the Bottom.
Most evocative singer/ songwriter ever💜
can add "Christian Soldier" to the list as well, but this is a fabulous Top-Ten, for sure!! I oughta frame what's left of my "The Silver Tongued Devil and I" ....
I've met him several times over the years -- last in 2010 when I presented him w/ collage of his life I made f/ him. Own all his movies available on DVD, even some from VHS days. He's my "main man' human being!
With every title in the comments, it brings back a memory associated with each song. He was a big part of the sound track of my life.
Spite Mr. Kris Kristofferson really did care for film Convoy (1978) and worked it just for old friend/director Sam Peckinpah. The song it was based on was a major hit in 70's. Curious why he didnt try performing/remaking it himself?
Yep, those are SOME of Kris' best songs, but one surprises me a little "Your Time's A' Comin", while it's good, I think there are MANY that should've made the list, i.e. Duvalier's Dream, Jody and the Kid, Just the Other Side of Nowhere and more recent "This Old Road". I listen to them all everyday, and it makes an old lady happy one more time!!
I guess the critics like songs that aren’t challenging. For me kris is best in the many songs he takes a stand: Jesus was a Capricorn, living legend, my god they killed him, Sandinista, the law is for protection of the people, etc.
Casey's Last Ride,
For the Good Times,
and Help Me Make It Through the Night are a few more just off the too of my head. The man doesn't do bad.
Does Kris say Silver Tongued Devil is another person? I think it is his other personality that "slips out of the shadows."
Darby’s Castle , Me and Bobby McGee, Sunday morning sidewalk ,From the Bottle to the Bottom, just a few of my favorites, going to have a listen after work 🤗
I've been a fan for 40+ years and the one that makes me dissolve every time is Jody and the Kid. Can't listen to it when I'm driving, cos through the tears I can't see where I'm going.
This man has so many hits that it is not enough to pick out only ten.
Some of his new songs should be on the list anyway!👏👏👏✊️👍🤝
Just finished watching your movie Cheatin hearts you didn’t have a very big part but I would watch anything with you in it. Music movies you’re my fave😀
ya, it was the pilgrim for me too, then bobby mcgee, and for the goodtimes, chris and willie wrote some great songs...
Como o vinho, quanto mais o tempo passa melhor fica, amo tudo que ele fez e faz, não sou capaz de escolher uma, e prefiro suas canções interpretadas por ele, apenas Me and Bobby McGee Janis Joplin supera a dele, da sessação que fez para interpretação dela.
One of my favourites and the one I plan to have at my funeral/cremation as the curtain closes and my coffin disappears. 'Jesus, my soul's in Your hands'. Love you Kris for giving us such beautiful poetry set to music. xx
The story he told, how it came to write a song like this, is very spiritual. I really don't know, to believe it. Hey Kris , is this story true or wanna you make us believe us; you're a believer since that happened??
I had such a crush on this man... and loved this song more than any other. I cannot fathom why. I'm not even christian.
My grandma was your cousin. Mona Roswald.
Saw all your awards on a trip to Nashville. You have lots of Family in Seattle!
Love this song... probably one of the greatest gospel songs written... Kris Kristofferson.... Legend!
I have, "Why me - Lord" on my Kris Kristofferson CD....Love it! He is a legend with many talents!!
I still stand by Sunday Mornin comin down... and the ever lasting Darby's Castle...
have this CD I even have it on an old 8 track
I will always love this man and his music! So glad he came to Rocky Mount, Va.
Love this song. Kris is one of our greatest songwriters.
Great show in Denver last night...you were awesome...hope you enjoyed our love for you!
Absolutely love this song!
Love this song, it gives me chills every time I hear it.
Luckily for me, I've over the years seen him do all of his songs LIVE!
One of the best singer-songwriters ever!
I love this song, and have hummed it in the shower for decades to start many a day.
Great Kristofferson song that always makes me cry!
Kristofferson!!! What else can be said- that hasn't been said already about a present day troubadour & Apostle spreading his genius like his fellow artiste Johnny/Cash the importance of "Signing/from/the/Heart" The joy of having soul & holding on to it! I had the privilege in The Point Depot Dublin back in the '80s to see on stage this incredible line/up "Willie/Nelson"- "Waylon/Jennings"-"Johnny/Cash" & last but not least--- "Kris/Kritofferson" - What a night to remember & cherish --- hoping " The/Story" would never end -as he would say (or/ sing) him self!!! What a joy to behold- it certainly lifted my belief & spiritualityity through
