Words

By late 1967, the Monkees had three smash albums under their belts and were gaining more control over their music, something that they didn't have at all just a little over a year before.  They were also playing their own instruments both in the studio and at concerts. When they released their fourth album and the single  "Pleasant Valley Sunday" it roared to #3 on the Hot 100.  But the B side, "Words" got almost as much airplay, going all the way to #11 on it's own.  Words was a great song, sadly today it's another forgotten oldie...

Time Has Come Today

In 1968, the Chambers Brothers hit #11 on the Billboard Hot 100 with "Time Has Come Today". A strange combination of psychedelia, gospel, blues, rock and soul, the song stood out with it's unique sound.  Today you'll find the song in a number of movie soundtracks, but on the radio it's pretty much a forgotten oldie.

Coconut

Today a forgotten oldie to warm you up, Harry Nilsson's 1971 hit Coconut. Reaching #7 on the Hot 100, the song takes me to summer fun every time I hear it.  Featured in a long list of movies and TV shows, how many other former top ten songs do you know that have been recorded and used for parodies by both the Muppets and Homer Simpson?

Liar by Three Dog Night

In 1971, Three Dog Night had a top ten hit with "Liar", peaking at #7 on the Hot 100.  I'm not sure why the song is a forgotten oldie today... probably because it was the follow-up to "Joy to the World".  Another instance where there are just too many songs to choose from in this great band's library.
