    Yeah, that's the one for me. What makes it stand out is the cool and understated approach.

    One of the iconic ones. Should be credited to CSNY rather than just Neil though.

    There was still pop fluff being released in the late '60s, but jeez, Jefferson Airplane's "Volunteers" was released just 7 short years after "The Mashed Potato"!

    I have always thought Do Do Do Do (Heartbreaker) by the Stones captures the atmosphere of the gritty and insane New York City of the 1970s.

    If the NYPD actually used .44 handguns back then (.38 special & 9mm parabellum were standard issue)...there would have been fewer surviving perps.
