Which songs do you think are awesome, but largely unknown and overlooked?




I'll start with Take The Dog Off The Chain - Babylon AD.




Easily their best song for me.

I love it, too, but I think "Bad Blood" is my favourite.

This could turn out to be a large list, as it'll be very subjective.

 

But I will add a suggestion. Hardline's Double Eclipse is often considered one of the greatest albums of our beloved genre, but I doubt many would consider this their favourite track off it.

I hope it can become a perpetual list.
There are tonnes of amazing songs around that many of us may never have heard of before.

 

I remember years ago Melodic Rock posted Harem Scarem - Hard To Love Acoustic Version which got me in to a band I'd not bothered with.

Yeah, where do you even start with a thread like this? I guess I'll list a couple of the best songs I've heard in the last two days?

 

'Really hits home' - Lixx Array (no video on Youtube)

 

'Can't stop the rain' - Lion

We never said goodbye by Syre is pretty awesome and hardly known

 

'In your eyes' off that album is my favourite, which, amazingly, appears to have actually been a single back in the day. Never seen this video before. Very cool...

Speaking of random soundtrack songs (from the 'Armageddon' soundtrack), at the time of it's release this was the best Journey song I had heard to that date. Still might be...

 

Remember Me;

 

 

Arguably Mr Big's best song ever is also just an unknown bonus track on their 'Greatest Hits' album.

 

Stay Together;

My favorite TS song.

Released on a greatest hits after being on the Strangeland soundtrack

Cool tune, by the way. Better than most TS stuff...

Also a recent one is Wayland - Get A Little

 

Thought it was a bit corny when I first heard it (kind of like the Wig Wam above) but after a few listens it imbedded itself in my brain and I was a bit addicted...

Here's a more recent one The Poodles - The Greatest

Don't know if that counts as overlooked, as it was their single.

I said "Go baby, you make me feel ah, ah, ah, ah yeah
Oh, baby, you make me feel ah, ah, ah, ah yeah"

:whistle:
How about Bad City - Touch
Massively underrated album.
Their first and last after the singer was apparently charged with sexual assault and kicked out of the band.
This song has it all for me, hooks, great bridges, brilliant production, builds to a great crescendo at the end.
One of 5 or 6 killer songs that I'd rank 9 to 10/10

Yeah, two counts of sexual assault. What an asshole. But his voice was great, and the album may be considered a modern classic in a few years.

My favourite track was "Don't Stop."

:whistle:

 

Yeah I know it kind of cheesy :quagmire: but I felt as a kid it was a song overlooked while everybody else talked about their hits like Christine Sixteen and Doctor Love, I loved that song

 

but on topic:

 

Badlands - Soul Stealer (1991) - I always thought this song was kick ass

Just recently I heard "All Canadian Man" by Miss Crazy.

Kinda weird heard the lyrics changed like that but not a bad song.

Would have preferred that they covered it and changed it more, otherwise what's the point?

Probably one of those songs that do well in concert but not so well on an album.

 

Not sure how well received the album "Paul Gilbert & Freddie Nelson - United States" was here, but I love this CD

Wasted Time is one of the best songs. Also Paris Hilton Look Alike and I'm Not Addicted are great tracks
