Gerry Rafferty, "Baker Street"

The first of two lasting hits from Gerry Rafferty's AOR smash City to City, "Baker Street" marries a melancholy folk rock narrative of yuppie despair with gold standard production that includes a Godzilla-sized saxophone riff and enough overdubs for twelve Supertramp albums. The lyrics about hoping to ditch the rat race came true, as constant royalty checks allowed the talented, troubled Scot to pack it in for the countryside until his premature passing in 2011. – Nick Dedina, Google Play
