Marshall Tucker Band's hit "Can't You See" has been named the No. 1 greatest southern rock song ever recorded by Ultimate Classic Rock.
"We are over the top with this announcement from Ultimate Classic Rock," raves Marshall Tucker Band lead singer and founding member Doug Gray. "It certainly lets us all know that 'Can't You See' is and will continue to be appreciated for a very long time."
"Can't You See" was written by the late Toy Caldwell and was originally recorded in 1973. It was later released as a single in 1977 and soared to the top of several national music charts.
Ultimate Classic Rock writes, "Next time you hear this song in public, take notice and you'll make the strangest observation, especially if there is booze involved. There seems to be something about this particular song that makes the majority (very ironically) close their eyes and sway their head from left to right while singing the song's famous 'Can't you see' line. That universal connection earns this song the top spot on our southern rock songs list."
