    Favorite Obscure Song

    I was moping around the office today mourning the loss of political and religious threads while my employers were paying me to work when I came up with what I thought was a good thread idea.

    I was watching Silence of the Lambs the other night when the infamous cross dressing scene came on where the serial killer is putting on his makeup etc in front of the mirror and I was thinking that the song playing in the background was really cool. It is called Goodbye Horses by a group called Q Lazaruz by the way. At any rate, I was thinking that had it had a more mainstream musical release it could have been a real hit.

    So now I pose the question to you fellow RZers, what are some of your favorite songs that are buried in obscurity? Were they featured in a movie? Were they just the product of lesser known band that didn't get the exposure they should have? I'm looking forward to some of your responses so I can dig up some of these hidden gems.

    Probably the greatest cover of all time is totally unheralded: the 13th Floor Elevators's version of Bob Dylan's "Baby Blue." It's better than Dylan's.

    Great line--but, unfortunately, it barely makes the top two or three from that movie alone:

    "IT will put the lotion in the basket...or IT will get the hose..."
    "Booing on opening day is like telling grandma her house smells like old lady."--WOY

    I remember the "Spellbound" video--"running" through the "woods." Good stuff.

    Another great video was "Hungry Wolf" by X--cool fake bats hanging from the fake cave ceiling.

    LOL, I have no idea what that means but it sounds really groovy. Do I have your permission to just spit out that sentence at the next female I meet at a bar?

    Sure... then tell her that Thunderclap Newman was misunderstood.
