Default forgotten bands and songs

Everyone knows "Stairway to Heaven" and "Smoke on the Water" but do remember "To Hot to Handle"? It was put out by a band called UFO. Remember them? Also everyone know "Jailbreak" and "The boys are back in Town" but Thin Lizzy also did other amazing songs like "Johnny the Fox meets Jimmy the Weed" and "Black Rose" Come on you classic rock cuties and dudes, share with us some bands and (or) songs that are lesser known or forgotten and that you think others would enjoy. I always like finding new songs, even if there 35 years old.

Saga "On the Loose"
April Wine "Just Between You and Me"
ZZTop "Beer Drinkers and Hell Raisers", "Manic Machanic" and "Bailnese"
Nazareth "This flight Tonight" and "Whiskey Drinkin' Woman"
Bad Company "Live for the Music"
Boston "Something about You"
Thin Lizzy "Sha la la" and "The Rocker"
Black Sabbath "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath" and "Fairies Wear Boots"
Derek and the Dominos' cover of "Little Wing" and "Keep on Growing"
Donnie Iris "Love is like a Rock" and "Ah! Leah!"
Led Zepplin "Hey Hey What Can I Do"
Badfinger "No Matter What"
Boston "Hollyann"
ACDC "Touch to Much" and Shot Down in Flames"
Van Halen "Feel your Love Tonight"

That's just to name a few that I know. Thank you for sharing!

It was Tony Carey's "A Fine Fine Day", great song you never come across on the radio anymore.

I've totally forgotten all about John Waite's "Change", I thought "Change" was alot better than "Missing You" which I thought was heavily overplayed.

I still occassionally hear Scandal's "The Warrior" but I rarely hear "Goodbye to You"

Another song I forgot to mention that you never hear is Pat Benatar's "Little Too Late"
