R&P~Why was the song "Fearless" not very popular back in the early 70's?

If your talking about the Pink Floyd tune Fearless, PF really wasn't that popular before DSOTM, after that they just kept coming up with better stuff and Meddle was water under the bridge, although Fearless has its merit and really shows the Gilmore influence on the band it's more of a found treasure rather than a song that got a lot of air play, Generally most got hooked after DSOTM and went back and discovered the early stuff, If you like that one you'll probably like this one, early Gilmore solo stuff, not to take away from Waters or the rest of the band but after Barret Gilmore was the sound of PF. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ewq73ADlEg
if you listen to his 78 solo album and PF Animals you'll see what I'm talking about

It's from the album Meddle, which had a large underground following but didn't receive airplay. Now in hindsight it's recognized as a great song along with "One Of These Days". This was the first release by PF that harnessed their signature sound.
Dark Side Of The Moon was next, and that sent PF from barely known to superstar status.

Do you mean the Pink Floyd song?

Certainly not that popular with Everton football fans on Merseyside at the time.The "You will never walk alone" sample chant was the "kop" singing.Kop meaning the hardcore part of the Liverpool football crowd.Often used by them
Also it's a below average repetitive song.
