Hearts_cover_image#4 – America – “Sister Golden Hair” – (1975)

The twang of the the guitar on this track is what sells me on it. Every. Time. I. Hear. It. This song would’ve been successful five years earlier if it had been written and released then. It has that folky country rock feel that the late-60 and early-70s perfected. It’s America’s best song and one of their most popular. It was also their second #1 single on the Hot 100.
