    In A Simple Rhyme, by far.

    Top of the World is my #2 though.

    For me, it's In A Simple Rhyme followed closely by On Fire.

    Top of the World for me with House of Pain a close #2.

    Note: I grew up on cassettes and A Apolitical Blues was not on OU812.I believe Sucker in a 3 Piece was, which was a pretty good closer, right down to the last drop.

    SIATP is a much better song than AAB, which is simply dreadful.

    I always looked at AAB as just a bonus, I feel the same about Happy Trails.
    I didn't critique it like the rest of the album, I did find it interesting.

    Top of the World. Though I love Feelin and BG. Top of the World is just a perfect closer for a show, album, etc.

    Top Of The World is easily the best album closer from the Sammy era, but better than On Fire or In A Simple Rhyme?

    As a closer, yeah. I just think it's perfect. Actually as just a song I like it more than either of those two.
