6) “Mississippi Queen,” Mountain (Billboard #21)

Mountain was a hard-rock band formed in 1969 featuring guitarist extraordinaire Leslie West and producer and bass player Felix Pappalardi as the band’s two most notable principals. The band was fortunate enough to play at Woodstock during their inaugural year, and after altering their lineup a bit, they released their first album, Climbing!, in March 1970. Both the featured single “Mississippi Queen” and the album sold well, as did their second album, 1971’s legendary Nantucket Sleighride. But everything wasn’t well within the band, and plagued by problems from drug use to Pappalardi’s hearing problems, and after releasing their third album in late 1971, the band broke up in early 1972, leaving many music fans feeling as if they hadn’t lived up to their potential for greatness. “Mississippi Queen” has remained an iconic song and one of the most famous rock songs of all time, despite the band’s failure to rise to the level of greatness enjoyed by many of their contemporaries..
