The Top TenXW

1Incense and Peppermint - Strawberry Alarm Clock

Agree completely. This song (and the SAC album of the same name) is one of the best of 1967. - PetSounds

2Magic Carpet Ride - SteppenwolfV1 Comment
3Since I Lost My Baby - The Temptations

David Ruffin made Michael Jackson seem like Justin Bieber.

4Crystal Blue Persuasion - Tommy James & the Shondells
5Only Daddy That'll Walk the Line - Waylon Jennings
6For Your Love - The Yardbirds
7Along Comes Mary - The Association
8The Rain, the Park and Other Things - Cowsills

The Cowsills were amazingly talented & highly underrated.

The Contenders

11On the Way Home - Buffalo Springfield

Many of Neil Young's greatest compositions were first heard while he was a member of Buffalo Springflield.

12My Pledge of Love - Joe Jeffrey Group
13Heart Full of Soul - The Yardbirds

Check the YT video from their Shindig! T.V. show appearance; in 1965, with the Beatles, Stones, Dylan and more headlining everywhere, the Yardbirds were absolutely the coolest guys on the planet.

14The Letter - The Boxtops
15Badge - Cream

This could easily have been a Beatles song, since it had writing input from George Harrison and even a little bit from Ringo!

16In the Year 2525 - Zager & Evans

Scary stuff. The only thing Z&E were wrong about is how soon the apocalypse will be upon us.
