Memo from Turner came to my mind immediately but it's a Mick song, right?

You’re right! I have it on a Stones compilation, so of course they didn’t attribute it to Mick alone.

Ya learn something new every day.

You should watch _Performance_ if you haven't seen it. Great movie. Keef got pissed at Mick for the nude scenes he did w/ Anita, who was Keef's squeeze at the time. Nicolas Roeg is a great director.

Neil Young:

Mogwai (i guess it's debatable about how well known they are, but this song is one of their best and has only appeared on a record label compilation)

Radiohead (they have tons of great b-sides)

This might sound stupid but I think that’s my favorite Who song.

I am glad someone else has it as their favorite. I always played it when I was a kid. Never thought I would hear it Live...until the went out and toured Quad again. Since then, I have heard it a few more times and always sang as if I were back as In my teen years: “Why do I have to move with a crowd of kids who hardly notice I am around. I work myself to death, just to fit in.” Great lyric, Pete.

The whole album is one great lyric!!

Yeah, I found those on Youtube. Good stuff....and reminds me that "Sun Maid" is another great obscure song. And that "Close" is a really wonderful song.

Candy From a Stranger gets sort of a bad rap, but there are great songs on that record indeed.

I love Wooden Nickles, Saturday Morning, Fresh Feeling it’s all good! Beautiful Freak is also a quality debut!
