He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother: Hollies, Neil Diamond, others.

After reading MaVolta’s excellent Bridge Over Troubled Water post, I was struck by a similar theme in He Ain’t Heavy: the quiet, everyday heroism of people who help and support their fellow humans, motivated by love and not by a desire for recognition or praise.

Bridge Over Troubled Water - S&G   

 

The hero is actually singing the song but probably would not consider himself such.

Teen Angel:  Mark Dinning (that fateful night the car was stalled upon the railroad tracks, I pulled you out and we were saved [but you went running back]).

His heroism was genuine, although its effects were not long-lived, due to her decision to return to the car to retrieve his high school ring, a ring that could easily have been replaced.
