    Well, when you're born in 1982 and have only vague memories of the 1980s, it's somewhat obscure

    Blimpie's suggestion of "Ava Adore" by the Smashing Pumpkins isn't obscure to me, and is even on their greatest hits album. But I'm guessing it'll be obscure to some people reading.

    "Green Mind" by Dink, featured in the "club scene" in the movie Fear with Marky Mark and Reese Witherspoon.

    Unfortunately, a soundtrack for the movie was never released and that song is not on any Dink CD.

    Great song, though.

    The term "obscure" is pretty subjective. I was mostly thinking about songs that were not played frequently on the radio.

    To be precise, anything that you bought in a store couldn't really be deemed "obscure"...so,

    Million Miles Away-Plimsouls, from the movie Valley Girl. Actually the whole Plimsouls album "Everywhere at Once" was great
    More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.

    True... I'm more of a Gish fan myself.. Rhinosaurous...

    1982 was a good year... thus I nominate Joe Jackson's "A Slow Song" and Squeezes "Black Coffee in Bed" as my anglo songs of the year.

    Anybody remember the song "Hey Mister" by some group (might have been one dude) called Custom? That song cracks me up everytime I listen to it.

    Hey Mister I really like your daughter.

    Good songs listed. 8Stops7 is a group I completely forgot about until reading your post. Metallica's "Low Man's Lyric" is one of my favorite songs by them, period. I thought there were lots of good ones on that Reload disc, I liked "Where The Wild Thigns Are" and "Fixxxer" a lot too, also songs toward the end of the disc like "Lyric". I thought "Spoonman" was a fairly highly regarded song by Soundgarden, their signature song until "Black Hole Sun", but again, I realize this is all subjective. Good picks also from Nickelback (that was the song I THOUGHT was well-known a few years ago, then I discovered everyone who liked that 'new band' who did "How You Remind Me" had never heard "Breathe"), 2Pac and Staind.

    And yes, I remember Custom... it was a solo guy by that name. That song was ludicrous. Ludicrously funny
