Mammoth

Earlier this week, Pim Koopman, the original drummer and percussionist of the best Dutch rock band of all time (Kayak), died at the age of 56 of heart failure. In his memory, the second top40 hit in Holland for this band, a beautiful piece of nostalgia. And probably Mammoth is the only rock song featuring a Dutch barrel organ. Crappy 1973 video, strong song.
Art Rock score: 8/10 (great song, I'd put it on my MP3 player)
