Southside Johnny!

I love "I'm So Anxious", and it's perfect for marketers, but not on YouTube (lyrics below)





I'm So Anxious
(B. Rush)

Won't you come to Florida for a vacation?
The tan developer beckons from the television
They know they got me because I'm an insomniac
Records, detergents, here's the latest Pontiac
The got me so conditioned now that
When they talk I just react
Why they throwing it all at me?

I'm so
I'm so
I'm so anxious

Hard sell pressure got to keep the motor running
Stimulate your need to satisfy something
You don't want to be the one who never gets in line
You don't want to be the one who's always left behind
Pick up that phone you're running out of time
Why they throwing it all at me?

I'm so
I'm so
I'm so anxious

I'm so
I'm so
I'm so anxious

I know you're worrying what will the people say?
I know you're worrying you've got bills to pay
Worrying will the backwash get you?
The undertow drag you out?

You don't want to be the one who never gets in line
You don't want to be the one who's always left behind
Pick up that phone, quick you're running out of time
Why they throwing it all at me?
Why they throwing it all at me?
Why they throwing it all at me?

I'm so
I'm so
I'm so anxious

I'm so
I'm so
I'm so anxious

I was just thinking of that song the other day but had no clue what the title or artist were.
And absolutely no clue of how to find it.

Here's one from 10cc from 1977 that JUST made the top 40. Haven't heard
this song in over 30 years.

The Song - "People In Love"

Here's a George Harrison discovery from 1974. The lead singer is an obvious
Harrison clone.

On Dark Horse Records...

The Group - "Splinter"

The Song - "Costafine Town"

Hey JD,

Nice to see there are people who have heard of and enjoyed the group Camel. Nice thread, good to remember some of these songs which we have forgotten.

Good one - and thanks, hadn't heard that in about 10 years.

If so, I apologize, (again) in advance.

But, as far as I know, this McCartney album, or tunes didn't get much notice.

Anyway, I submit...

Harry Chapin had a few hits including Cats In The Cradle, Taxi, and maybe one or two more. But Harry Chapin had a ton of great songs that either never
made the charts or hardly put a dent in them.

He left us way too soon and I still miss him today.

Here's one of his greatest songs that wasn't a big hit.

"What Made America Famous"

Obscure?

Made # 1 in England and # 5 on the US Pop Charts and was one of the top
100 songs of the year.

Not even close to obscure by any stretch of the imagination.

Really! That did well in America? Edison are known as a one hit wonder group, they were never able to repeat the success of this record.


This one from Dave Edmunds should qualify, it only reached No 65 in the US, it's a great tune, from 1979.

I've searched this thread and find only one reference to Artur Lee's LOVE band. Popular in the sixties playing on the FM stations that were the epitome of "underground" at the time but definitely obscure to many born in the sixties or later. So, without further ado ... Orange Skies (I LOVE autumn in the northeast USA). Bertrands Island amusement park - wooden rollercoaster - beer hall -get the coaster operator to shut the lights out as the coaster runs - great fun!

Well, this was late 60s or early 70s when the song came out, but I'm sure this vid is from the last few years or so. Not the typical music vid though.

You want obscurity? Here goes...

Here's "Spartacus," a song from a 70's progressive band called Triumvirat that had some brief success:

"Ego Trip," A song by 60's psychedelic band Ultimate Spinach:

"Devil's Answer" by Atomic Rooster:

"Astral Projector" -- a song by Zon, a 70's Canadian progessive rock band that doesn't even have a song on Youtube (as far as I can tell:

I think your are bringing out one of the things about music back then, it was very regional. A song like this might be a hit in pockets or areas but not a "national" hit.
Very good point! So much music and culture -- including music and songs -- dissipated with the advent of mass standardized culture and experience. Very scary.

Here's an obscure ELO tune and why I loved Roy Wood so much. Shame he
left ELO.

The Song - "Whisper In The Night"

Okay, be honest...how many of you remember Meco's "Themes From The
Wizard Of Oz?"

This song just about cracked the top 40, but that was it.

Hasn't been heard in over 30 years.

Obscure? I may be wrong, but I thought this was big hit single at the time.

Mary Hopkin had one big hit, "Those Were The Days" that made # 1 around
the world.

She also had a minor hit "Goodbye" that cracked the top 20.

This song? Not even close.

Yes your right Steven : good call: iI was 77 on the US bill board chart, but No 7 on the US Commentary Radio play charts which means it was played on the radio an awful lot, but wasn't a hit.

up against just about anybody.

CBC Radio once had a series on Frank Zappa. He was definitely a genius.

Here's one of those Dickie Goodman "Flying Saucer" records.

This one from 1973.

The Song - "Watergrate"
