    I have the 'Unearthed' box set with that and more, got it as a Christmas present a few years back. Lots of good stuff on that one.

    Another good one from the 80's, and one you don't hear on the radio often (if at all!)

    ABC - How to be a millionaire

    Good tune. I've heard of the band, but haven't heard that song before.

    While I don't necessarily consider Billy Joel underrated, I do think he doesn't get his due as a rocker and a songwriter.

    These three songs demonstrate that nicely, and all happen to be personal favorites.

    First, one you don't hear that often, Angry Young Man. Featuring some real good piano work.



    Next, Scenes from an Italian Restaurant.



    Next, a song that would fit right in lyrically with the likes of John Lennon or Warren Zevon. Pressure.

    Been listening to quite a bit of indie rock lately, really liking this song from The Temper Trap, 'Fall Together'

    That's a killer tune.

    Since Yacht Rock is all the rage around here, figure I'd add my two cents. Featuring a good song from a fantastic album.

    From the album Aja
    Steely Dan
    "Deacon Blues"

    I always liked Steely.
    Saw them in concert a couple of years ago. They sounded great.

    They were here with Steve Winwood a while back at Red Rocks. Wanted to catch that but couldn't. Maybe next time.

    My favorite song from one of my favorite albums. I'm beginning to sound like Richard Christie.

    Keeping with the 60's Theme among the music threads, we feature this little gem from the Yardbirds.

    Heart Full of Soul.

    Yardbirds seemed to have more success when Jimmy Page was not in the band

    5 years to the day we lost Amy Winehouse at the cursed rock star age of 27.

    here's "Rehab"

    Wow. It doesn't seem that long ago.
    It's still sad.

    Not very evil, and only a little poppy, but I like that one.
    Seen listening to it on SXM.
