“Can’t You See” Named #1 Southern Rock Song. Townsquare Media’s Ultimate Classic Rock recently unveiled its list of the greatest Southern Rock songs ever recorded. The Marshall Tucker Band holds the the top spot with “Can’t You See.” Every year the song is included in new major motion picture soundtracks, TV series and commercials and is played thousands of times on Classic Rock radio stations all around the world. “We are over the top with this announcement from Ultimate Classic Rock. It certainly lets us all know that ‘Can’t You See’ is and will continue to be appreciated for a very long time.” -Marshall Tucker Band lead singer and founding member Doug Gray “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. The iconic southern anthem has been covered by some of the biggest names in the Country and Rock music genres, including Waylon Jennings, Alabama, Poison, Hank Williams Jr., Kid Rock, the Allman Brothers Band, the Charlie Daniels Band and the Zac Brown Band. “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.” -Ultimate Classic Rock ULTIMATE CLASSIC ROCK TOP 10 SOUTHERN ROCK SONGS: 10. “Mississippi Queen” – Mountain 9. “30 Days In The Hole” – Humble Pie 8. “Ramblin’ Man” – The Allman Brothers 7. “La Grange” – ZZ Top 6. “Flirtin’ With Disaster” – Molly Hatchet 5. “Long Haired Country Boy” – The Charlie Daniels Band 4. “Highway Song” – Blackfoot 3. “Green Grass & Hight Tides” – The Outlaws 2. “Sweet Home Alabama” – Lynyrd Skynyrd 1. “Can’t You See” – The Marshall Tucker Band
