Underrated Songs - Harry Nilsson - Lean On Me (not the hit)

Paul McCartney - Old Siam, Sir
Fairuz - Al Bosta...................Phil Ochs - Changes................Woody Guthrie - Which Side Are You On?

There are some good non-mainstream prog rock bands like Camel, Spiro Gyra, Tai Phong, T2, etc...

Personally, the 60s and 70s are my aims. I like the sad songs, but I like soul/folk/funk/disco.. Vocals are very important, I like tenors and falsetto, using vibrato, quavers... Music to me is much more important than the lyrics. In fact, the phrasing/rhythm of the vocal is probably more important now that I think of it, but the quality of the voice.

Can't wait to hear your thoughts -- I love the eclectic tastes in here!
