Hitching Post - Hitching Post? Did you mean the non-radio hit Whipping post?
Melissa - Not a radio hit (you just like it because it mentions a freight train. )
Midnight Rider - Not a radio hit.

Well, Ramblin' Man and Jessica meant a lot to me at one time when I used to do a classic rock gig back in the mid-90s.

Yes, "One" gets a ton of radio play up here. If I listened enough, I probably could have heard it once a week for the past 23 years. By the way, "One" was Metallica's first Top 40 hit, reaching #35 on the Hot 100 in 1989.
Rhymes with slice, rice and mice, and probably should be spelled like "Tice."

This pretty much sums it up:
