FOLLOWUP NOTE: THE COMMENTS ON THIS POST ARE EXCELLENT!
I am not talking about good songs, I am talking about great songs. I know good and great are subjective, but can you point to a song that you said to yourself - “that’s one of the best songs I ever heard in my life” - and then that song went on to die on the shelf; never to be heard by more than a handful of humans again? Does death by obscurity really happen to great songs, or does lack of traction only happen to mediocre songs?
I am doing some research. Can you show me links to songs you think should have been certifiable hits? Or, just comment on this post. Thanks.
