  1. The best song on the list is SO YOU WANT TO BE A ROCK ‘N’ ROLL STAR by the Byrds from their underappreciated fourth LP, “Younger Than Yesterday.” According to co-writer, Chris Hillman, the song was a “good-natured” swipe at manufactured bands like the Monkees who were enjoying great success at the time.
