I was thinking the other day about songs that, to me, are so well made that by all indications they could have been hits.
But great though they were, they didn't become hits, which is somewhat disillusioning and demotivating.
I realize there's no accounting for taste, and that one man's Beethoven is another man's Bieber, but what are your favorite songs that nobody really listened to?
Mine is Heathaze, by Genesis. Just an amazing piece of songwriting by Tony Banks, and beautifully played. It turns out that there's a small subculture of people on YouTube who love this song and have posted their own renditions of it (some of them quite good).
