Top Ten Most Underrated or Forgotten Important Songs

The Top Ten

1 Peace Train - Cat Stevens Peace Train - Cat Stevens

Certainly I dint. Know about it

2 We Are All Made of Stars - Moby We Are All Made of Stars - Moby

Looks like the tech issue is some kind of conversion that top tens is going through at the moment, will have to wait and see what is happening.

This poll has been corrupted on a technical level somehow, please correct if possible.

I don't think that was the point but it could be another legitimate objection - Billyv

No, actually, I do mean on a "technical" level.
It shows only the first 20 items on a screen, then if you click to page 2, the numbers start at 101.
Oversensitive much?

A few users who make an abundance of lists also seem to need to frequently add to and remix other more obscure lists so that their tastes always dominate. Other vote everyday on the same thing to drive their preferences to the top, and lessen other perspectives. They distort and dilute and dissuade variety, and actually seem upset or intolerant when their favorites aren't on top. - Billyv

3 Fallen - Electus
4 Running to the Sea - Royksopp
5 He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother - The Hollies

This song shows the brilliance of 60s music - jmepa1234

6 Extreme Ways - Moby

I am very glad that the 'Bourne' series decided to keep this song for each film since I never tire of hearing it. I'd argue that this is Moby's best work (although I am probably not a big enough follower of his to really form a serious opinion). It's a great song, let's just leave it at that. - BKAllmighty

7 Unfinished Sympathy - Massive Attack
8 Question - The Moody Blues

Well, I certainly haven't forgotten this song. My second favourite from this band (after Nights in White Satin). - BKAllmighty

9 I Remember - Deadmau5
10 Get Together - The Youngbloods

The Contenders

11 Abraham, Martin, and John - Dion
12 I Had This Thing - Royksopp
13 Aquarius/Let the Sun Shine - The Fifth Dimension
14 There Only Was One Choice - Harry Chapin

My choice for a National Anthem. - Billyv

15 The Cut Runs Deep - Deep Purple
16 Crying In the Rain - Whitesnake
17 Rainbow Eyes - Rainbow
18 This Night - Filo & Peri
19 A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall - Bob Dylan
20 Sails of Charon - Scorpions
21 Come Back to Me - Uriah Heep
22 Teach Your Children - Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young
23 Paradise Circus - Massive Attack
24 Starrider - Foreigner
25 One Day - Gary Moore
26 Set Me Free - The Sweet
27 For What Its Worth - Buffalo Springfield

Not an anti-war song; its about students rioting on the Sunset Strip, because a popular bar was being torn down to make way for a parking lot.

This is a good song - Pony

It is such a great song about anti-war and what happens when protests are dealt with violence. -Wafzal2 Productions

28 Retrograde - James Blake
29 Don't It Make You Feel - Headpins
30 Keeping the Faith - Billy Joel
31 Taxi - Harry Chapin
32 Hooked On a Feeling - B.J.Thomas

It's probably known a lot more now because of another version in Guardians of The Galaxy - micahisthebest

33 I Want You Back - Jackson 5

At least to me it is seriously underrated. - Bronson

34 Needles and Pins - Smokie
35 Call Me When You're Sober - Evanescence
36 Heroin - The Velvet Underground

While not forgoteen now, I think it deserves mentioning because of how long it(and the album) went unoticed for so long. agruebly the most influentail album ever, it presaged punk, alternate, and noise more than anything else. forutunitly it has since been rediscovered and is now considered one of the best albums ever - RecklessGreed

37 Year of the Cat - Al Stewart
38 Eight Miles High - The Byrds
39 Hello It's Me - Todd Rundgren
40 We Just Disagree - Dave Mason
41 For No One - The Beatles
42 On The Way Home - Neil Young

Written by Neil when he was a member of Buffalo Springfield, and this is definitely a Buffalo Springfield song. Neil performs it only very rarely in his solo concerts, but in the few Buffalo Springfield reunion concerts, it is always a highlight.

Neil also performed it as Crosby Stills Nash and Young and it's on One of their albums. I still refer to it as a Neil Young song. - Billyv

43 End Of The Line - The Traveling Wilburys
44 Bangladesh - George Harrison
45 We Gotta Get You a Woman - Runt
46 American Pie - Don MacLean
47 Alone Again Or - Love

A tour de force from a great band

48 Here Without You - The Byrds

Virtually unknown song, highly personal and written by Gene Clark. Received little notice, never charted, and zero airplay even during the Byrd's superstar period.

49 Beware of Darkness - Leon Russell and George Harrison
50 Sugar Mountain - Neil Young
