Re: underrated old songs

Agree with quite a few of these,this song in particular - it's in my all time top 100


Al Stewart - Year Of The Cat

Re: underrated old songs

I agree a lot of 50s-60s R&B should be given closer looks.

My Favorite Mistake is okay but I prefer most of her s/t and the other songs on Globe Sessions.

Re: underrated old songs

One of my favorite 60's songs is Chad + Jeremy's "Rest in Peace". It's a really great song that suffers from being on an album that was past their 5 minutes of fame and also has a really long, unneeded intro. But, it's a really good psych pop song.

For something not quite as obscure, Simon and Garfunkel's Only Living Boy in New York is one of my favorite songs of all time but it's rarely seen on even S+G greatest hits albums. It was on some commercial this past year which might have brought some popularity back to it, but it probably suffers from not being an oldies or classic rock radio friendly song.
