Most Overlooked Classic Rock Songs
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!
Agreed, I love this song, always have. Great acoustic work, great buildup, really explodes when the drums kick in.
I was a huge Heep fan in high school. Good choice for #1. Overlooked band and often maligned. They've made some great music.
This song has hands-down one of the best riffs in rock history!
One of the best riffs and solos in Rock
Great song. The blueprint for Tommy. Genius.
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!
Amazing song. Played by Matllica also as a tribute to Queen.
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
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
The solo in this song is hauntingly beautiful
Lord's organ runs are chilling, Blackmore's guitar is distinctly 'feral magic' - bummo
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
I think that this wasn't undervalued when it came out but it didn't stand the test of time when it should have
Overlooked? Sorry, but this was a huge hit when I was young.
Despite it's corny-ness, still get's my attention - bummo
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
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.
over looked classic frampton/marriot; Steve Marriot considered for Zeppelin and Deep Purple vocals - bummo
Ok.If you are looking for an overlooked rock song, this is it! This song really deserves to be higher on this list! At least a top 5. It is fantastic! Just listen to it. It's hard to believe it's only six minutes long, 'cause it feels like a whole long journey. It has everything! Sadly, there are not many people who knows about it...
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!
Second favorite song of Free. - zxm
Great song. One of Paul Kossoff's last. Great riff.
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
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.
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!
The band lost a coin flip for a chance to appear at Woodstock. Santana won
It was almost 3 or 4 years ago when I discovered Ten Years After and Alvin Lee. I never really cared about this song or any of his songs. But when I listened to them again, I realized how overlooked song is this. Alvin Lee is an awesome guitarists. Very underrated. He is from same years of Keith Richards, Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck or George Harrison. But criminally underrated as a guitarist. Forget about his vocals credit. - zxm
Yes, this is a very underrated song. Few people have ever heard it.
I can't find Sunfighter album in digital format-wish I could for these two songs - bummo
Oh god... I thought this was Orleans or Wet Willie or some other mid 70s band. This song is so sweet it makes me sick.
Fireball is kind of an overlooked band. Cinderella and Strange Way were both excellent.
A sort of precursor to the variety of Bohemian Rhapsody. Goes from slow and steady to hard rocking. Just an all around excellent song from their debut album.
Great song, great vocal by Marty Balin. Wonderful guitar work, kinda chilling, gives me goosebumps.
What? This is not overlooked. Yeah it is a good song, but it was really popular.
Nothing by Led Zeppelin can be considered "overlooked". - Metal_Treasure
If you want overlooked Led Zeppelin, how about Living Loving Maid?
Ahahah, Stairway To Heaven is not overlooked!
The Lemon Song is overlooked - Rocker00
