Most Underrated Songs from the 60's

The Top Ten Most Underrated Songs from the 60's

1 Incense 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

2 Since I Lost My Baby - The Temptations

David Ruffin made Michael Jackson seem like Justin Bieber.

3 Crystal Blue Persuasion - Tommy James & the Shondells

Tommy James was a true visionary demonstrated especially in this song wherein he plays multiple instruments. this song has such incredible textures and feelings and I was excited to see this make the list.

4 Magic Carpet Ride - Steppenwolf

That's not really underrated, I heard it pretty much on WOLX 94.9

5 Only Daddy That'll Walk the Line - Waylon Jennings
6 For Your Love - The Yardbirds

The group that made Clapton, Page and Beck and made the first ever psychedelic rock song...the Yardbirds aren't half as famous as they deserve to be

7 The Rain, the Park and Other Things - Cowsills

Thanks for another great visit to the past - I know and apprecIate All of these songs. Brilliant choices for your top ten, revealing again your broad and diverse knowledge, and sophisticated tastes! - Billyv

The Cowsills were amazingly talented & highly underrated.

8 Along Comes Mary - The Association
9 I've Gotta Get a Message to You - Bee Gees
10 I Fought the Law - Bobby Fuller Four

The Contenders

11 On the Way Home - Buffalo Springfield

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

12 Badge - Cream

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

13 My Pledge of Love - Joe Jeffrey Group
14 Heart 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.

15 The Letter - The Boxtops
16 Catch the Wind - Donovan

A forgotten classic

17 In the Year 2525 - Zager & Evans

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