I really liked Joe Cocker's version of that song as well. Really tugged at my heartstrings.
For me it was a couple of Radiohead albums, The Bends and OK Computer. At the time I was well into my grunge and alternative music and considered Radiohead a bunch of poppy middle class twats from Ocfordshire.
It took Pet Sounds for me to get the Beach Boys. Back then I thought they were like Mike Love's version of them is now.
George McCrae's "Rock Your Baby" I hated because it signaled the end of the guitar's dominance and the beginning of disco. Now I recognise it as an incredible piece of music - absolutely wonderful syncopation arrangement in a small-room live-sounding session, sparkling tones and actually a very nice guitar part.
When it came out, I was too immature to understand the absolute brilliance of this song.
Now that I'm older and wiser, I understand it.
"Since I Been Loving You"..."Miss You"..."Anticipation"..."You're No Good"...stuff by Brazil 66 I rediscovered later after hearing it on grown-up radio as a kid. Live, un-digitized voices, real instruments, real squeaking drum sets and the sound of the air in the room, almost. I think I emerged from a gee-whiz phase of digging everything the Beatles ever touched, all the studio experimentation, and had to rediscover less processed and clever stuff.
"I repeat myself when I'm under stress. I repeat myself when I'm under stress..."
Bohemian Rhapsody, I’m very ashamed to admit. When it came out, I thought of it more of a novelty than a serious song. Now to me it’s a masterpiece — a fun bit of musical genius.
Back when I knew it all, you wouldn't catch me dead listening to KC and the Sunshine Band. I volunteer now at the local county fair where they played a couple of years ago, so, I grabbed the wife and we went. This was the tightest band I have ever seen. The horn section was incredible and the lead guitar player was the ghost of Jimi, even enjoyed the drummer, who was great by the way. KC is a showman, grabbed the audience and didn't let go through one song after another. I'm a fan now, fun music from a kick ass band.
It seems heretical for a member of my generation to admit this, but it took ages for me to love this.
Alice Cooper's "Eighteen."
Iconic and has stood the test of time.
Almost 50 years old:
I think you’re one short...
Almost anything from The Eagles or Doobie Bros.
Nice story, I think this tops it!
Anything from Queen. Especially Bohemian Rhapsody.

The first thing that comes to mind:
I used to not notice or care for this song, and now it just sends me.
