The Overlooked Songs From Each Bob Seger Album | Society Of Rock Videos

A Musical Genius

Bob Seger has been in the music industry for a couple of years before he struck gold with “Live Bullet” and “Night Moves.” He amassed a pretty solid following because of his constant touring but it wasn’t until the mid-’70s when he finally got the recognition he deserved.

Let’s take a look at the underrated gems in his catalog.

18. Noah (1969) – “Death Row”

It’s one of the songs that grow on you.

17. Brand New Morning (1971) – “Maybe Today”

Relaxing and beautiful.

16. I Knew You When (2017) – “The Sea Inside”

Seger described this as being “very Led Zeppelin” and yes, it sounds like “Kashmir”.

15. Smokin’ O.P.’s (1972) – “Someday”

Yet another track that should be played more often.

14. Ride Out (2014) – “Gates of Eden”

Like most of his music, this one’s absolutely enchanting.

13. It’s a Mystery (1995) – “By The River”

Bob Seger can go from hard rock to slow numbers and nail it every time.

12. Seven (1974) – “School Teacher”

Often overshadowed by more popular songs, this just rocks.

11. Face the Promise (2006) – “Are You”

The vocal performance is insane.

10. Mongrel (1970) – “Lucifer”

The magic happens with the live version.

9. Ramblin’ Gamblin’ Man (1969) – “2 + 2 = ?”

A powerful protest song against the Vietnam War.

8. Like a Rock (1986) – “Tightrope”

It didn’t age well but it’s still enjoyable.

7. Against the Wind (1980) – “Long Twin Silver Line”

Turn up the volume for this one.

6. Beautiful Loser (1975) – “Jody Girl”

Gentle and uplifting.

5. Back in ’72 (1973) – “Back in ’72”

Something you’d want to put on repeat.

4. The Fire Inside (1991) – “Sightseeing”

Catchy from start to end.

3. The Distance (1982) – “Makin’ Thunderbirds”

A straightforward rocker we just can’t get enough of.

2. Night Moves (1976) – “Come To Poppa”


1. Stranger in Town (1978) – “Feels Like a Number”

We have NO IDEA why this is often overlooked.
