18: You're gone

17: Happiness is the road

16: Three minute boy

15: The king of Sunset Town

14: The invisible man

13: The party

This is incredibly difficult. Not only picking 20 songs, but also ordering them. It doesn't help that I usually get more into albums than particular songs whenever I go through a Marillion phase.

But I'll try this anyway.

Torch Song
Seasons End
The Uninvited Guest
The Last Straw
Fugazi
Jigsaw
Afraid Of Sunlight
Three Minute Boy
This Town Trilogy
Hotel Hobbies/Warm Wet Circles/That Time Of The Night Trilogy
The Lap Of Luxury
Bitter Suite (Especially for the amazing Blue Angel section)
Script For A Jesters Tear
Grendel
The Fruit of the Wild Rose
Holidays In Eden
Heart Of Lothian
White Russian
Sugar Mice
Easter
Slainte Mhath

Marillion have some of the best title tracks.

I wonder if I really should do this.... listen to the whole Marillion discography, pick out the great songs, comparing all of them and choose 20. A lot of work.....but I like the idea. I'll be back with a list, if I succeed!
