Many of mine have already been listed but frankly as a child/adolescent of the 60s I couldn't narrow my choices to a dozen let alone just a single tune....

One of my personal favorites which I still play regularly is "Drift Away" by Dobie Gray, probably the first or second vinyl LP that I ever bought. I cannot remember any other songs from the album, but haven;t played it many years.

Howard Jones - No one is to blame



I don't really have a favorite, but this was pretty good.

Neither Pilot, nor Gilbert O'sullivan, nor Howard Jones were one hit wonders, at least in UK.

And a favorite of mine from my senior year in high school. For me, the attraction and the hook is the guitar work by Reggie Young throughout the song starting with the intro. Reggie was a studio musician and a part of the house band at American Sound Studio in Memphis. They were called the Memphis Boys. You can hear Reggie's guitar work on countless recordings that came out of that Memphis studio.
