Time to continue the ongoing series of songs you probably thought were major hits but never even reached the Top 40.
We start today’s medley with a Beatles song that reached #1 on the British charts but failed to hit the Billboard Hot 100 chart when it was released in 1963. Next up is one of John Fogerty’s most revered solo songs. Surely that hit the Top 40, right? Wrong.
The Band chimes in next with an iconic tune most people assume was a Top 10 hit. Nope, it didn’t even reach the Top 60! And then there’s the Talking Heads with another very well known song, but again, it failed to reach the Top 50.
Finally, we close out the medley with a Rolling Stones classic. A classic, yes, but another song that failed to hit the Top 40.
