220px-Stealersalbum#16 – Stealers Wheel – “Stuck in the Middle With You” – (1972)

Stealers Wheel, from Scotland, actually released their debut album at the tail end of 1972. This song peaked at #6 on the Hot 100 in 1973. This was a surprise hit for the band (which included song co-writer and lead singer, the late Gerry Rafferty) as it was written to sort of mock Bob Dylan’s style. Perhaps most famously, the song was used in Reservoir Dogs where Michael Madsen cuts off another man’s ear.
