well I just read through the "saccharine" thread and laughed my ass off!!!
Then I thought, okay, what about those songs we actually *love* that a great many people think are goofy or dated or what have you?
And I am talking here about *good* songs which are inherently *not* treacly or sentimental, but which, with overplaying or time or forgotten context, perhaps, have somewhat lost their relevance or zip?
I will get the ball rolling with:
In the Year 2525 by Zagar and Evans
Nights in White Satin by The Moody Blues
San Francisco Girls by Fever Tree
American Pie by Don McLean
White Rabbit by Jefferson Airplane
Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen
Lady by Styx
The Spirit or Radio (or anything) by Rush
Don't Fear the Reaper by Blue Oyster Cult
Dust in the Wind by Kansas
Piano Man by Billy Joel
Cat's in the Cradle by Harry Chapin
California Dreamin' by the Mamas and the Papas
