River Deep Mountain High Should Have Been a Bigger Hit

Every year Rich Appel, seen above with radio legend Harry Harrison, compiles a list of records that should have been in the Top 10 years ago.  Very often records are more popular many years after their original release.  He calls this the IRS 104 and plays it just before the Internal Revenue Service requires us to file our tax returns.  He and Bob Radil play the list on Rewound Radio on Friday Night and on the Rest of the Week show heard Saturday 6 AM - 1 PM and Sunday 10 AM - 3 PM on WRNJ-Hackettstown, NJ.  I am not fussy about what song made what number, but I did submit a list to Rich. On the top of my list was River Deep Mountain High by Ike and Tina Turner.  It was strange that it reached #3 on the British chart but only #88 on the Billboard Chart in the USA.  Thanks Rich for your efforts.
