    Outstanding song by the Pumpkins, and I'd add probably "Eye" and "Perfect" on that list, too, but I'm not sure how well known they are. I'm fairly certain the other half dozen or so songs I like are pretty well known, stuff like "Disarm" and "Tonight, Tonight."
    "Eye" is a great song that I only discovered when I bought the Smashing Pumpkins greatest hits. It's quickly become a favorite of mine.

    There's a differnece between an obscure song, though, and a song that was just a really good "B-Side" (non-radio or big airplay) track on an album.

    None of these are really "Obscure" per-se...I'd term them "Hype Challenged," but I really like them anyway:
    "Prisoner" - The Last Emporer (great underground hip-hop artist)
    "Breakin'" - The Music (great british band -- got a little bit of Rush in them)
    "Free" - VAST (good 90s sound)
    "It's Nuthin'" - Sly Boogy (I can't figure why this guy isn't bigger than 50 Cent. Seriously great wordplay from this guy.)
    "Please Stand Up" - British Sea Power (this band should be big pretty soon)
    "Consequence Free" - Great Big Sea (These guys should've taken off, but never did. A little bit of Barenaked Ladies to their sound)
    "Silverbacks" - Masta Killa ft. Inspectah Deck and the GZA (The last of the original Wu-Tang clan single albums -- obscure because it didn't get released until last year, over a decade after the first Wu album)
    Championships Matter.

    "Mighty KC" by For Squirrels. A brilliant, moving tribute song to Kurt Cobain. Unfortunately, the lead singer died in a van accident as the band was returning home to Georgia after touring.

    Re: Favorite Obscure Song

    Oh yeah, while we're on the topic of Power Pop.

    Howsabout "Starry Eyes" by The Records.

    Oh good gravy ifiwasntatworkidbeplayingthatsongRIGHTNOW!

    And please folks....No more Pearl Jam mentions. My brain has finally stopped bleeding from alla that Ethel Mermon doing an Eyore impression caterwaul Eddie Vedder, and a million other copycats subjected us to for nearly a decade.

    I can still remember the pain.

    Ohhh Gawd! "Heee Haye, Heee Harwrrrrr...I'm still Alyrrrveee Ohrrrr..."

    Oh god please make it stop.

    You know what?

    If Pearl Jam hadn't spawned Candlebox, Collective Soul, and that religious band with the lead singer who's hooked on painkillers that's name escapes me...Well, it wouldn't be so bad.

    I'd just not be into them and everything would be okay. Problem is, it seemed like every band that had a couple of guitars in the nineties and early oughts had singer that spewed the same feaux wounded white guy growl howl. We were all supposed to swoon and revel in that stuff. I, for one didn't drink the cool aid. I drank alot of beer and started buying Curtis Mayfield and Sam Cooke records instead. Now THAT'S what I call Soulful.

    So it's not really Pearl Jam that I despise.

    In fact, I chaperoned my cousins to a Pearl Jam show around 1993. The Frogs opened, and that was awesome, and I also thought Pearl Jam were kinda okay.

    It was alot better than when those same cousins made me take 'em to a Paige/Plant concert. Yeeeccchhhh. But that's another story.

    I'm totally off topic.

    Anyone heard "Just Head" by The Nervous Eaters. Greatest song ever written dontcha know.
