Songs you remember fondly that aren't mentioned much anymore

We have the worst songs list in another thread, but here we can come at it naming some songs we liked a lot but hardly anyone seem to reference anymore. They still sound good and give pleasure. Good novelty songs that are ripe for rediscovery, too can be mentioned.

Sylvia -- "Pillow Talk" -- one of the sexiest songs evah!

From 1973, but I played this a lot in the 80s and 90s as friends passed away.

"Friends With You" - John Denver

What a friend we have in time. Gives us children, makes us wine. Tells us what to take or leave behind. And the gifts of growing old, all the stories to be told of the feelings more precious than gold.

Friends I will remember you, think of you, pray for you. And when another day is through, I’ll still be friends with you.

Baby’s days are never long. Mother’s laugh is baby’s song. Gives us all the hope to carry on.

Friends I will remember you, think of you, pray for you. And when another day is through, I’ll still be friends with you. Friends I will remember you, think of you, pray for you. And when another day is through, I’ll still be friends with you. My friends, I will remember you, think of you, pray for you. And when another day is through, I’ll still be friends with you.

Pillow Talk was a huge hit in Chicago in 1973. Not many people seem to remember it.

Some great blasts from the past. How about Mellow Yellow from Donovan? Reminds me of being 16 on a hot summer day--I didn't know it was about drugs. I didn't know WHAT it was about, just liked it. Does this song have the lyric "I'm just wild about 14?" (Matt Goetz territory?)

Hot sticky summer nights in the Midwest,. A bunch of us teenagers driving the country highways late wt night in a big old beat up American car. This song captured that essence so perfectly.
