Top 10 group efforts

Hooray for Top-10 lists!

I'm interested in what your top 10 songs are where multiple band members were credited for writing the music. Bonus points if credit went to 3 or 4 band members.

I'll post my list soon, but I have to think about it first. :)

I'll do a couple Top Ten lists — one for songs written by two to three members and one for songs written by everyone altogether.

Top 10 Songs Written By Nearly Everyone:

1. Shine On You Crazy Diamond [I - IX] (Gilmour, Waters, Wright)
2. Burning Bridges (Waters, Wright)
3. Wish You Were Here (Gilmour, Waters)
4. Comfortably Numb (Gilmour, Waters)
5. Young Lust (Waters, Gilmour)
6. Any Colour You Like (Gilmour, Mason, Wright)
7. Stay (Waters, Wright)
8. Marooned (Gilmour, Wright)
9. Cluster One (Gilmour, Wright)
10. Breathe (Gilmour, Waters, Wright)

Top 10 Songs Written By Everyone:

1. Echoes
2. Time
3. Interstellar Overdrive (or is it Intercourse?)
4. Atom Heart Mother
5. One of These Days
6. A Saucerful of Secrets
7. The Travel Sequence**
8. When You're In
9. Pow R. Toc H.
10. Careful With That Axe, Eugene

Don't know how I missed this beast when it was posted, I love making lists! I could only come up with six, though. If Nick had stopped hiding from pie crusts and actually did some writing for Wish You Were Here, A Momentary Lapse of Reason, and The Division Bell, then I'd have a much more satisfying list.

1. Time
2. Echoes
3. Atom Heart Mother
4. Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast
5. A Saucerful of Secrets
6. Pow R Toc H
