Five Best Songs: Three Dog Night

It's tough to come up with the five best for one of the top groups in history, and any "Best of" list has to include songs like "Eli's Coming", "The Show Must Go On" and "Easy to Be Hard".  One thing leaving those songs out of a Five Best tells you how great this group was.

For years after they broke up as a recording group, Three Dog Night was one of The Top 15 Artists of the Rock Era*.  Several acts have since passed them now, but, and I'm speaking to the younger generation now because everyone in my generation knows how great they are, this is a very special group.  Listen to the great lyrics that matter:

1.  "Joy to the World"

2.  "Shambala"

3.  "Eli's Coming"

4.  "Mama Told Me (Not to Come)"

5.  "One"

6.  "Easy to Be Hard"

7.  "An Old Fashioned Love Song"

8.  "The Show Must Go On"
