Bob Seger's career trajectory nearly mirrors Bruce Springsteen's, his main competition in the late-'70s for the heartland-rock audience. Both singer-songwriters started in the late-'60s in garage bands that made their livings, and local reputations, in bars. Both grew up on '60s soul, which they incorporated into their own music. And both were given time by their record companies to develop into major artists. But Seger charted first ("Ramblin' Gamblin' Man" reached No. 17 in 1968) and has a No. 1 hit (the terrible "Shakedown" from 1987's Beverly Hills Cop II). Springsteen never got higher than No. 2. We're not saying we'd choose Seger over Springsteen, but his best tracks hold up against the Boss'. Here are our Top 10 Bob Seger Songs.
