The biggest hit Todd Rundgren ever had was Hello It's Me, good song but I don't play it very often, opting instead for Couldn't I just Tell You and the first side of Something/Anything.
Marianne Faithful is supposed to be this landmark cutting edge singer in the late 70/80s, not to mention the chick who Mick liked but I thought Sandie Shaw was much better. Morrissy and the Smiths must have thought so too.
It's not that I don't like these landmark songs that was mentioned above. It's just that they have been played to death on our rock stations around here. I don't understand how the entire catalog of music by the Doors, Bowie, Van, Zep, ACDC and others can be cut down to just a half dozen songs or less that get the constant airplay.
I listen to Indie Rock more and more. There is some excellent indie out there. The record company giants won't touch them and that's kinda depressing. Most will sell less than 500 downloads on ITunes but I don't care. I will listen anyway.
