Short post, mostly because there’s not really much to find about these guys (i.e. wiki falls short)
Rare Bird was a progressive rock band from the 60s who have mostly faded into obscurity save for their one hit: Sympathy.
Sympathy’s main message is that we need sympathy, because “there’s not enough love to go round”. The song is slow, with the obligatory 60s church organ and a dull beat. The vocals and lyrics however are simple yet powerful. The song grows on you after repeated hearings and in the right (or wrong) mood it can in amplify your (sad) feelings.
Worthy to check out!
