I love a song that tells a story. Here are a couple:
First, a Scottish/Irish collaboration from The Waterboys:

and then Chris de Burgh, who usually manages a good story:

Rod Picott performing Welding Burns--about his
"Pa", broken dreams and the ol' hometown...love it.

Try this DT...ROD PICOTT--the storytellers storyteller...

And Slaid Cleaves' Rust Belt Fields..."no one remembers your name just for working hard"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-QlobN5pwRw

By the way, before Slaid & Rod became Americana legends they grew up together in the rust belt fields of South Berwick, Maine, best friends through high school and still today...

as teens writing songs and dreaming of better days.

Been too long since Ive listened to Waterboys, thanks for the reminder of what a great band they were! My favourite Waterboys song is Red Army Blues, but such a sad story, especially when we know this happened to a lot of red army soldiers when they returned to Russia.. This 17 year old boy joining the red army at the end of the WW2. When the war is over he is sent directly to Gulag instead of what he believed Kiev.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aupn-91BNwU

Blackmore 1965 with the Lancasters. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3yCZdh2KRJI In doveregubbens hall by Edvard Grieg. Surf/garage version . The year of Beatles Help, also the year classical music in rock was more than a riff or reference.

So sixties - I used to like this band, though at least among my crowd it was not fashionable to do so! Love the dance moves...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IP8G4clUJBY

Though their dancing is as nothing compared to this lot:

I confess to have loved them both!

Paul Revere's drummer taught this fledgling drummer some licks -- through their records.
KICK"S was originally meant for The Animals...I can hear The Animals doing that one.

In 1967 they were Columbia's top selling act...over Dylan, The Byrds, etc...!

Hungry was a fave....
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dnxa6QUqrOQ

And Just like Me...a pretty great one from 1966. It rocked.

And of course theirs was the first version of "(I'm Not Your) Stepping Stone". Better than The Monkees?

Here's a sample (well, a medley) of another of the better British bands of the 60s:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ChKZC0D0qS0

Oh, and not at all hip, but I loved this one (still do,in fact). What a terrific voice this girl has:
