5 Underrated Songs By Music Legends Born In The Year Of The Dog

By  January 10, 2018

2017 might not have been the best year for some of us – concerts got cancelled, pop icons released seemingly disappointing singles, and lastly, we lost American musician Chris Cornell and Chester Bennington of Linkin Park.

But since we’re approaching the year of the dog this coming Chinese New Year, it’s high time to reflect on music legends who were born in the year of this Chinese zodiac.

Known for their good character and ability to empathize with human emotions, like all dogs do, these music legends have made their mark in the music industry during the past few decades. Certainly, music that we’re listening to now would not be the same if not for these icons.

Let’s listen to some overlooked songs by these 5 music legends born in the year of the dog.

 

Elvis Presley (January 8, 1935) – A Mess of Blues

The King of Rock and Roll proves that he also got the chops for the blues in this mellow underrated song.

 

Freddie Mercury (September 5, 1946) – Let Me Live

This underrated Queen track opens with hair-raising harmonies and leads the listener to an awe-inspiring adventure from start to finish.

 

David Bowie (January 8, 1947) – Moonage Daydream

I first discovered this song in the film Frances Ha and it has been my one of my go-to dance anthems, despite its dark lyrics.

 

Prince (June 7, 1958) – Darling Nikki

The song might not have topped the charts allegedly because of its sexual lyrical content, but Darling Nikki remains to be a well-loved track with Rihanna even covering the song during her 2011 Loud tour.

 

Michael Jackson (August 29, 1958) – Speechless

Give this sentimental ballad the listen it deserves this year and indulge yourself in a stirring 3-minute wonder.
