    For me, each album has several songs I like almost equally well. I'm only going to list albums that include the Tijuana Brass, since I know those extremely well and remain my favorites from the Herb Alpert catalog. Often, my favorites are not the title track, but rather some of the inside tracks. Herb was known for making strong albums without "filler", so I could easily change all the songs on this list:
    Lonely Bull - Let It Be Me
    Volume 2 - Winds of Barcelona
    South of the Border - Up Cherry Street
    Whipped Cream - Bittersweet Samba/Tangerine
    What Now My Love - Memories of Madrid/So What's New
    Going Places - Mae
    SRO - Flamingo
    Sounds Like - Wade in the Water
    Ninth - Abanda
    Beat of the Brass - Slick
    Christmas Album - Winter Wonderland
    Warm - Marjorine
    Brass Are Comin' - The Maltese Melody
    Summertime - Hurt So Bad
    You Smile/The Song Begins - Fox Hunt
    Coney Island - Vento Bravo
