The List: Berman rests in peace
Special to Page 2

ESPN's Chris Berman, who loves music almost as much as sports, lists the 10 CDs he'd like to be buried with:

1. Bob Dylan, Greatest Hits.
I'd have to have "Like a Rolling Stone," "Positively 4th Street," and "Rainy Day Women No. 12 and 35."

2. Elton John, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road.
My No. 1 jumping off the bureau songs are "Funeral for a Friend/Love Lies Bleeding."

3. Derek and the Dominoes, LIVE.
Fourteen minutes of "Let it Rain" and 14 minutes of "Why does Love have to be So Sad?"

4. Rolling Stones, Hot Rocks.
"Under My Thumb," "Paint it Black," "Time is on my Side," and "Brown Sugar." You can't miss!

5. Rod Stewart, Storyteller.
"Maggie Mae" always kills me, and the four-CD set covers two-and-a-half decades.

6. Eagles, Hotel California.
Can you imagine me for all eternity without it?

7. Bruce Springsteen, Born to Run.
An American original.

8. Bad Company, Straight Shooter.
"Good Lovin' Gone Bad" and "Wildfire Woman" are classics.

9. The Who, Who's Next?
In the first 10 years of ESPN, we had eight or nine different heads of SportsCenter, and we used to call it the SportsCenter theme: "We Won't get Fooled Again .. meet the new boss, same as the old boss."

10. Fleetwood Mac, Rumours.
"Go Your Own Way" is one of the great songs of all-time.
