I’ve always been fascinated not by big hits and big fame as much as the fleeting moments of greatness from the not-so-famous. To that end, what are some of your favorite anthems from less-than-superstar artists? I suppose second-echelon is debatable, so we shan’t quibble about that.
My nomination to get the ball rolling would be Never Been Any Reason by Head East. Sure it was a big hit, but Head East never became the words on the tips of the tongues of everyone from suburban teenagers to window washers…I saw them live a few times back in the day, and they were always opening for R.E.O. Speedwagon and the like.
So, what are yours?
