 You forgot the most important category: Better for Speeding Down the Highway with Music at Full Volume...and Summer of 69 takes the cake on that one.

 I'm not even reading this article. It is "Night Moves" or nothing. PERIOD! ;)

 this is splendid, andrew, and draws the correct conclusion. and yet: -- I was a little too tall Could've used a few pounds Tight pants points hardly reknown She was a black-haired beauty with big dark eyes And points all her own sitting way up high Way up firm and high -- if the anatomy described therein is really incomprehensible to you, than you got less action in high school than you even let on.

 I can't help thinking that Don Henley's "Boys of Summer" is more comparable to "Summer of '69" than "Night Moves". From the angle of songs about first sexual experiences, certainly "Night Moves" makes more sense, but. In any case, "Boys of Summer" ought to be considered a kindred spirit to these songs that would definitely be able to hold its own in a competition of this sort.
