Stand-Out Songs

Recommended Posts

I struggled to come up with a title for this. What it isn't is one-hit wonders or your favourite songs.

I means songs that sound like nothing else, real one-offs.

A good example is Queen - Bohemain Rhapsody - where did that come from?

I'd also say Band on the Run - Wings and Life's been Good - Joe Walsh.

Unusual songs by good songwriters who decide to take a real gamble with something off-the-wall.

Any others?

Was going to say good call but, thinking about it, I think it sounds like quite a bit of eighties output like One Night in Bangkok, Sabrina Boys, Big in Japan etc.

Jimmy Webb seemed to be like a one man Bohemian Rhapsody type track machine. And no-one else has come close to Macarthur Park, for cautioning in such an epic way, the hazards of leaving baked goods lying around in inclement weather.

I'm not sure some of this fits the bill, Bu that's just me.

My Nominations:

1. Smells like teen spirit

2. It takes a muscle (The original not the Mia version)

Especially 2. Great tune, very unusual, no one I talk to seems to have ever heard it.
