Most Overlooked Classic Rock Songsbummo
The Top Ten
extremely surprised to see uriah heep on this list, and very much so deserved. just check out the first album, songs like "gypsy" and "lady in black" then songs like "look at yourself" (there magnum opus) "july morning" and sadness and grief. the album demons and wizards "easy living" and... and said look at yourself was there best song? I ment "the magicians birthday" the last verse in the magicians birthday is one of the greatest ever written in any genra of music.
Wow! I sure didn't expect to see this as number one, but what a great call! Love this song, and unbelievable vocals by David Byron! In fact the only downside to this is there is no way in hell I could sing it!
I was a huge Heep fan in high school. Good choice for #1. Overlooked band and often maligned. They've made some great music.
Check out it's cover by Blind Guardian - I think it's awesome.
Uriah Heep is the favorite band of the Blind Guardian's singer. He obviously knows the good stuff because he covered exactly this song. Besides, he named his second band Demons & Wizards - yeah, the guy definitely loves Uriah Heep. - Metal_Treasure
Lord's organ runs are chilling, Blackmore's guitar is distinctly 'feral magic' - bummo
Phenomenal song! Just outrageously frenetic, fast, and stupendous!
This song is widely considered as the first thrash metal song. - Metal_Treasure
Queen at their best Cool guitar!
Overlooked? Sorry, but this was a huge hit when I was young.
Despite it's corny-ness, still get's my attention - bummo
Very few have listened this song. Of course after listening this song their minds change. But this take time to find this song. I never became a floyd fan before listening this song. - zxm
When I look up to the skies I see your eyes, a funny kind of yellow...
Their psichodelic era big hit song.
Posterior hard rock boogie band.
Excellent Frantic four.
Good cover by Oxzy Osbourne.
This song has hands-down one of the best riffs in rock history!
Saw these guys do this in Philly 12/74. Great show! In many ways this record(s) was a signal for Gabriel's exit and a more commercial sound. Good song...The earlier stuff is better.
probably the only Genesis song I ever liked - bummo
Great song, great vocal by Marty Balin. Wonderful guitar work, kinda chilling, gives me goosebumps.
over looked classic frampton/marriot; Steve Marriot considered for Zeppelin and Deep Purple vocals - bummo
Second favorite song of Free. - zxm
Great song. One of Paul Kossoff's last. Great riff.
I never wanted to listen this song. I though they aren't a good band. But after listening this song, that has become one of my favorite songs. - zxm
This is one of the best songs of the eagles and one of my personal favorites and always goes unnoticed
The best song on "The Long Run". Hey, you guys did a great job on this list. Some awesome deep album cuts!
Al Kooper considered 'best' by Who rocker Pete Townsend - bummo
I believe Bob Dylan was quite fond of his talents and contributions as well. - Billyv
I was amazed to see this song on here. It's really underappreciated, even among Byrds fans. - PetSounds
Probably sticks because of EZ Rider - bummo
Simply a perfect rock song. It has everything one could possibly wish for, and even more!
Wish more people knew about it.
YAS! BEST SONG EVAAAR!
Man Who Sold the World album is worth digging out - bummo
beastly and epic Santana is the best that guitar is amazing
Santana did so many great instrumentals in his early days. Great choice!
This is a magical piece but I don't think its genre is classic rock. - Metal_Treasure
This is why Carlos Santana is a guitar maestro.
