3 San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Flowers In Your Hair) - Scott McKenzie UListen to Sample
4 50,000 Miles Beneath My Brain - Ten Years After UListen to Sample
5 Dear Mr. Fantasy - Traffic

One of the greatest songs ever. Steve Winwood is incredible.

In as much as I posted this list, Surrealistic Pillow is my Favourite Album, period! Traffic and Stevie Windwood stand out. Mr. Fantasy is one of any number of Traffic Songs from this era that could have graced this list and Mr. Windwood plays it still if anything with even more soul than he did back then!
