Wichita Lineman - Glen Campbell (1968)
Every song Jimmy Webb wrote for Glen Campbell is a stone classic of melody, lyric and production. I am giving the edge here to Wichita because of the unique sounds of the wire, the loneliness that permeates even stronger than in "Galveston" or "By The Time I Get To Phoenix" and the everyman scope that made this song a deserving smash. Listen to it again, and see how much, like a fine wine, it has aged.
And then Johnny touches it.....wow! That man could cover the phone book and make it his!
