C# list in specific order

I need to promote a specific object within a list to the start of the list so it is retrieved first in a foreach loop.

Can this be done?
if so how but if not what's the alternative?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

yes this can be done.

List<MyClass> x = new List<MyClass>();

x = x.OrderBy(i=> i.Sort_Order);

the other way you can do it is just to remove that specific item, and insert it at 0:

MyClass myPriorityItem = x.Where(i => i.TheId == 1).SingleOrDefault();

if (myPriorityItem != null)
{
      x.Remove(myPriorityItem);
      x.Insert(0, myPriorityItem);
}
