First, I hafta say, when you're listing overrated songs, naturally, they're gonna be overplayed as well. That's the dynamic.

They can't be overrated if no one is listening to them, can they?



Overrated

1. Amazing
2. Angel
3. Love In An Elevator
4. Crazy
5. Rag Doll

All cookie cutter songs, with a benign design.


Underrated (in no order)

1. Hoodoo Voodoo Medicine Man (Pump)
2. Think About It (Night In The Ruts)
3. The Hop (Done With Mirrors)
4. Joanie's Butterfly (Rock And A Hard Place)
5. Let The Music Do The Talking (Done With Mirrors)
6. Chiquita (Night In The Ruts)
7. Flesh (Get A Grip)
8. Fever (Get A Grip)
9. Simoriah (Permanent Vacation)
10. My Fist Your Face (Done With Mirrors)


I don't know if you can really call these songs 'underrated' as much as you can call them 'really great Aero songs that you're only gonna hear if you're a big enough fan to own these albums'

You'll note majority of these songs are from their 'transitional' phase. NITR, they were falling apart, RAAHP, Jimmy Crespo & Rick Dufay on guitars. Crespo wasn't bad, but Dufay was more interested in being pretty thatn playing guitar. DWM, the band is back and feeling one another out.

Night In The Ruts, to me, is easily the most underrated album in Aero's extensive catalog.

I know they were already done, but my take on the beatles-- this is one I would be interested in hearing people's opinions of my list because well its the Beatles, would be cool to see which songs people agree with, disagree with on my 2 lists. I put the album that each song is on as well.

Underappreciated
1. Golden Slumbers/Carry that Weight/The End--Abbey Road (Consider them 1 song-- hope you agree)
2. Within You Without You- Sgt Peppers
3. I'm Looking Through You- Rubber Soul
4. Two of Us- Let It Be
5. Rain- Paster Masters II
6. I Saw Her Standing There- Please Please Me
7. For No one- Revolver
8. Money (That's what I want)- With The Beatles
9. Mother Nature's Son- White Album
10. I'll Follow the Sun- Beatles for Sale
11. Its Only Love- Help
12- Don't Let Me Down- Past Masters II
13. You Know My Name (look up the number)- Past Masters II

I know I cheated I put 13(and you could even argue 15)..

Overappreciated
1. Yellow Submarine- Revolver
2. Yesterday- Help
3. 8 Days a Week- Beatles for Sale
4. Love Me Do- Please Please Me
5. Hey Jude- Single
