73. Shelley Plimpton and the Original Broadway Cast (Hair), "Frank Mills" (1968)
Lodged like a daisy within the tangle of Hair's hippie-shaking list songs and protest numbers, "Frank Mills" is an unrhymed, fetchingly simple ballad about looking for love in the city. Shelley Plimpton's lovably artless version on the Broadway cast album is definitive, but the Lemonheads' deadpan 1992 cover proved that the song remains a waif-naf treat.
