220px-It_Never_Rains_in_Southern_California_(album)#9 – Albert Hammond – “It Never Rains in Southern California” – (1972)

This song, which was actually released in 1972, sounds like it should’ve come out in the late 1960s. Maybe that’s because it’s about California, a state strongly associated (musically) with the 1960s. It was a top five single on the Hot 100. Interesting note: Hammond’s son, Albert Hammond, Jr., is a member of The Strokes.
