Recently, cdm asked,
I still don’t understand WHY Glad Girls by Guided By Voices was not a massive hit.
I think there were multiple nods of cyber agreement in response to this inquiry, and it begs the question, What are other songs that should have been, could have been SMASH HITS?
We at RTH are quite in the know and don’t need to convince ourselves (often) of our highly refined musical taste. But there are times when we just want to ask why a song didn’t fare better with the buying public.
What songs should have been contenders? I would like to nominate Velvet Crush’s “Hold Me Up,” a lovely little 3:00 minute power pop gem. And you?
