Featured Unknown/Underrated Song*: Badfinger's "Baby Blue"

Badfinger had three consecutive Top 10 songs before this Todd Rundgren-produced song, that should have run the streak to four.  It stopped at #14 in 1972, and it would be the last Top 40 song the group ever had:

"Baby Blue"
Lyrics and Music by Pete Ham
Guess I got what I deserved
Kept you waiting there too long, my love
All that time without a word
Didn't know you'd think that I'd forget or I'd regret
The special love I had for you, my baby blue

All the days became so long
Did you really think, I'd do you wrong?
Dixie, when I let you go
Thought you'd realize that I would know
I would show the special love I have for you, my baby blue

What can I do, what can I say
Except I want you by my side
How can I show you, show me the way
Don't you know the times I've tried?

[guitar solo (Joey Molland)]

Guess that's all I have to say
Except the feeling just grows stronger every day
Just one thing before I go
Take good care, baby, let me know, let it grow
The special love you have for me, my Dixie, dear.
