    That’s a good one. My own favorite is Accidentally Like a Martyr, which sounds like a Bob Dylan song title but isn’t. Speaking of Dylan, he does a great cover version of Zevon’s Mutineer.

    I think that one is my favorite as well. Although it is a hard career to pick a favorite from.

    At my wedding, I made the band learn Werewolves…and our first dance was to Mutineer

    We played “Let Nothing COme Between You” at our wedding. My favorite song of his is probably “Vost Indifference of Heaven” but it is hard to pick.

    Beautiful, I had never heard this before.
    “Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner” is another great one.

    I saw the headline before the embed preview finished and Carmelita was the song that instantly popped into my head. One of my all-time favorites as well.

    I’m partial to “Excitable Boy” for the dark humor. “Lawyers, Guns and Money” is also fun. RIP Warren.

    “Carmelita” is as good as Zevon gets. good choice.

    That’s one of Zevon’s best. It always reminds me of Dylan’s Desolation Row.

    But I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead is my favorite Zevon.

    The counting crows do an amazing version of this song.
