Unfortunately, the thing was just too damn sticky, a rumbling groove of unstoppable bubblegum momentum, eventually resulting in the rare No. It was one of the weirdest songs to receive heavy FM radio play at the time, foretelling hard rock's looming influence over popular music Joni Mitchell, "Chelsea Morning" Did not chart. A song about the simple joy of waking up to a sun-kissed room might be cloying in the hands of a lesser scribe. Motherlode, "When I Die" No. Listeners of a later generation might know it best for how the late J Dilla flipped it on his final album Donuts , which he largely recorded in the hospital, where he was dying of a rare blood disease and lupus.
Here's a heartfelt torch song that thinks it's a rousing pop song. Or is that the other way around? The fourth single from Stand! The Upsetters, "Return of Django" Did not chart. Luckily they turned out just fine for the next decade. Few of the many utopian pop songs from the late '60s are powerful enough to survive to dramatically less optimistic times, but Tommy James' "Crystal Blue Persuasion" indeed remains pretty convincing a half-century later.

No one could tell a musical story better than Johnny Cash, and the Man in Black fully embodies the titular boy named Sue in this offbeat country gem. Thanks to cheeky lyrics penned by children's author Shel Silverstein The Giving Tree , Where the Sidewalk Ends , Cash delivers the musical equivalent of a stand-up comedy routine with a twist ending! And Cash laughed his way all the way to his biggest hit ever on the Hot , with "Sue" peaking at No.

No bad song has ever kicked off with cowbell, and you can be damn sure The Rolling Stones weren't about to have the first. It was still pretty good. Thunderclap Newman, "Something in the Air" No. By the end of the song, the three sing with such desperation that it makes any listener want to sit up straighter, be better. From the opening guitar lick, this unabashedly seductive single showcases William Bell at his crooner best. Donovan, "Altantis" No. The lyrics don't make a whole hell of a lot of sense, but with Donovan imbuing them with religious reverence, this is five minutes of borderline nonsense that cuts deep.
Dusty Springfield, "Breakfast in Bed" No. Its reputation established only after the fact, Dusty in Memphis was perhaps the high-water mark for a white pop artist working in a black musical idiom. Like an A-lister tearing into a juicy monologue, Dusty effortlessly traverses empathy, seduction, despair and wistfulness in the course of three minutes. The best of the bunch was "These Eyes," gliding in on an electric piano hook so smooth you'd never guess the song's emotional stakes would get above a 7.
Laura Nyro, "Save the Country" Did not chart. But the track is more deeply a parable about the double-edged sword of itself, when the counterculture promises of personal freedom and social revolution devolved into a collective sense of hazy disorientation.

If not the best love song about betting on horses and getting stoned to Spike Jones, then certainly the funkiest. Desmond Dekker and the Aces, "Israelites" No. A classic for its opening line alone, which Desmond Dekker sings with ominous authority. I was telling people not to give up as things will get better. The fury of the Woodstock generation boils over on "Volunteers," a fiery psych-blues manifesto against the Vietnam War.
Harry Nilsson, "Everybody's Talkin'" No. The first single from The Allman Brothers Band's eponymous debut album, "Whipping Post" thrust southern rock into mainstream consciousness and helped pave the way for acts like Lynyrd Skynyrd and The Marshall Tucker Band. Can, "Yoo Doo Right" Did not chart. That tune, album closer "You Doo Right," is 20 minutes of hypnotic repetition that sounds like the self-loathing, desperate cousin of the Velvet Underground's "Sister Ray.
Frank Sinatra, "My Way" No. An anthem for the Me Generation, delivered by the greatest entertainer of the Greatest Generation. Sinatra later came to snark "My Way" as self-indulgent, but that didn't stop the grandiose ballad from becoming his signature song, after numerous fallouts and comebacks over thirty years in show business. Sly and Co. An anthem that epitomizes its era, but endures decades later because everyone can relate to having a good time on a hot day: It will always feel like summer.

Aretha Franklin, "The Weight" No. Despite growing into one of the best-remembered songs of the late '60s, The Band's original "The Weight" failed to make a significant Hot impact in , peaking at No. I just love them all. Thanks for joining me! I hope to see you along the way as I celebrate this release! Ancient wizard Thurlock continues to help Lucky learn about his unique magic as they travel together, but when they reach the capital city, they find few allies and too many Sunlandian traitors.
Lucky has armies, friends, family, shifters, dragons, a faithful dog, a winged horse, and magical tools on his side. But when war comes like a great storm, hurling at him everything from zombies to hateful wizards to twisted drakes, can he hope to prevail—or even survive? An hour , Lucky thought. Yesterday I went to a meeting where I found out people still hate me.

Lemon Martinez apparently had taken pity on him for once, though. He purred comfortingly—and uncharacteristically—curled into a loose spiral of gray fluff next to Lucky on a sun-washed flat rock in a quiet corner of the Behlvale. Much closer, a pair of hand-sized golden dragonflies flashed in and out of the sunlight, their wings making a droning hum over the splash and bubble of the creek.
Not yet. Fidgeting, he drew the Black Blade from its sheath, which was hooked to his belt at the moment, and squinted at the violet gleam echoing the sunlight deep inside the obsidian. It brought to mind another afternoon in the sun, and he realized one of his questions could be answered then and there.

Is it? The one I read about in that book? In stories lie the greatest truth. After the Stooges' second breakup, Iggy made recordings with James Williamson, but these were not released until as Kill City , credited jointly to Iggy and Williamson. Bowie was one of his few visitors there, and he continued to support his friend and collaborator. In , Bowie took him along as his companion on the Station to Station tour.
This was Iggy's first exposure to large-scale professional touring and he was impressed, particularly with Bowie's work ethic. Following a March 21, show, Bowie and Iggy were arrested together for marijuana possession in Rochester, New York , although charges were later dropped. Bowie and Iggy relocated to West Berlin to wean themselves off their respective drug addictions.
Bowie helped write and produce The Idiot and Lust for Life , Iggy's two most acclaimed albums as a solo artist, the latter featuring one of his best-known songs, " The Passenger ". Among the songs Bowie and Iggy wrote together were " China Girl ", " Tonight ", and " Sister Midnight ", all of which Bowie performed on his own albums later the last being recorded with different lyrics as " Red Money " on Lodger.
Bowie also played keyboards in Iggy's live performances, some of which are featured on the album TV Eye Live in In return, Iggy contributed backing vocals on Bowie's Low. He moved to Arista Records , under whose banner he released New Values in This album was something of a Stooges reunion, with James Williamson producing and latter-day Stooge Scott Thurston playing guitar and keyboards.
Not surprisingly, the album's style harkened back to the guitar sound of the Stooges. New Values was not a commercial success in the U. The album was moderately successful in Australia and New Zealand, however, and this led to Iggy Pop's first visit there to promote it.
While in Melbourne, he made a memorable appearance on the Australian Broadcasting Corporation 's nationwide show Countdown. During his anarchic performance of "I'm Bored", Iggy Pop made no attempt to conceal the fact that he was lip-synching shoving the microphone down his pants at one point , and he even tried to grab the teenage girls in the audience.
He was also interviewed by host Molly Meldrum , an exchange which was frequently punctuated by the singer jumping up and down on his chair and making loud exclamations of "G'day mate" in a mock Australian accent. His Countdown appearance is generally considered one of the highlights of the show's history and it cemented his popularity with Australian punk fans; since then he has often toured there.
