    The Beastie Boys are awesome. I always thought "Girls" was hilarious....

    "Girls - To do the dishes, Girls - to clean up my room...."

    From White Castle to the Nile.

    Also, the whole "Paul's Boutique" album is very underrated.

    I've seen a couple newer artists covering this song...and doing it well. Rufus Wainwright has a very good version, and I know that Fiona Apple has done it as well.

    My favorite overlooked Elvis Costello song is "Shipbuilding", which may well be the ONLY song about the Falkland Islands War of 1982. I believe this song was also in the movie High Fidelity.

    I used to be a big fan of "Against the Wind" & "Turn the Page", but if I'm listening to Seger these days, you can't beat "Still the Same" or "Beautiful Loser."
    Love "Two of Us" and just about anything Beatles. I would probably have a different top 5 everyday. Here's some more maybe more in line with the Hidden Gems theme:

    Billy Joel
    Christie Lee
    I've Loved These Days
    Angry Young Man
    Vienna
    Scenes from an Italian restaurant

    The Beatles (Different Day)

    I always liked that song too. The story behind it (according to Paul) was that he has always been a very organized person and needs to have things well laid out and planned - nothing spur of the moment, no surprises.

    Linda use to tell Paul - "Lets get in the car, loosen up, leave it all behind for a bit, and take a drive to nowhere."

    Paul said that always scared him not knowing or having everything planned/laid out.

    Thus came the song and the lyric..... "Two of us riding nowhere"
