Jeff Healey rose to popularity in the ’80s. He lost his sight before turning one because of a rare cancer of the eyes called retinoblastoma. He started playing the guitar at three, and he eventually developed his own style of playing it flat on his lap.

Here are his ten best songs:

1. Angel Eyes

It’s Healey’s only US Billboard Top-40 hit, and it peaked at #5 on the chart.

2. See The Light

Its classic status is well-deserved.

3. Cruel Little Number

One of his heaviest numbers, that intro alone blows you away. It was also co-written by ZZ-Top guitarist Billy Gibbons under the pseudonym, Justis Walkert.

4. Confidence Man

That solo is definitely something else.

5. While My Guitar Gently Weeps

One of George Harrison’s finest compositions, Healey didn’t just do justice to the classic. He also added his own flavor to it.

6. Stuck In The Middle With You

A Stealers Wheel original, Healey took the song and made it his own.

7. I Think I Love You Too Much

Written by Mark Knopfler, the guitar work on this track is nothing short of stellar.

8. How Blue Can I Get

This can only be described as a masterpiece.

9. Which One

With its killer groove, it’s pretty addicting to listen to.

10. When The Night Comes Falling From The Sky

Written by Bob Dylan, it became a fan favorite and a staple during Healey’s live performances.
