    So many good songs... I have a special love for Him or me, Epistle to Dippy, Subway (such a great production!).

    Most overrated by far: Brown eyed girl.

    My favorite on the list is "Show Me" and, of course, it's in last place.

    Love his Bang period, I'm a believer included but competition here is ultra tough.

    Don't Sleep in the Subway
    King Midas in Reverse
    Both Sides Now
    Magical Mystery Tour
    Light My Fire
    Brown-Eyed Girl

    I seriously considered not bothering with the last three since they really don't need any more encouragement, but they made the cut, just. I would have loved to vote for Dave Davies, the Move or Love but their tracks here don't quite measure up.

    It was painful to narrow it down to only eight selections. I mean how could I leave out Magical Mystery Tour, Arnold Layne, or Brown-Eyed Girl? And yet, I did.

    Here's my picks:

    Embryonic Journey - Jefferson Airplane
    Death of a Clown - Dave Davies/The Kinks
    I Can Hear the Grass Grow - The Move
    Him or Me - What's it Gonna Be? - Paul Revere & the Raiders
    Epistle to Dippy - Donovan
    The Golden Road (to Unlimited Devotion) - Grateful Dead
    Light My Fire - The Doors
    Little Wing - The Jimi Hendrix Experience

    I could say the same about "I Can Hear the Grass Grow", which is one of the best psych singles of all-time. Still, thirty-five votes so far - so it is getting some love.

    Did I ever tell you about the time I was on hold for 90 minutes while "You Can Call Me Al" played on a loop? Grrrrrr.

    "Brown Eyed Girl"

    So, it's a popular song that is enjoyed by a wider array of folks than just music geeks that hang out on forums?

    How annoying. How dare people listen to the same catchy songs over and over. Shame on them.
