David Cassidy's 10 Best Songs: Critics' Picks

David Cassidy is best known for his role on the 1970s television series The Partridge Family, but the late singer/actor had a musical career that stretched over a few decades.

The pop artist and former teen heartthrob notched his first hit when "I Think I Love You," the debut song released by the made-for-TV musical family act (in which he played Keith Partridge), reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1970. He went on to release several solo albums in addition to his Partridge Family recordings.

His final album was released in 1998: Old Trick New Dog brought things full circle with several new versions of Partridge Family tracks, including the classic "I Think I Love You," plus new songs.

Below, look back at 10 of the best David Cassidy songs -- a mix of his solo and Partridge offerings.
