I don't hate or love these songs. I've never heard them.

I LOVE Tuxedomoon and particularly "Pinheads on the move", though I think the live version from Berlin from "10 years in one night" is best (but then I'm biased - I was at the concert). In fact, most people I've played Tuxedomoon to seem quite easy to convert (check' em out Cal!)
I recently went through a John Fahey phase and although he seemed absolutely accessible to me, nobody I know likes anything of his.

my favorite song of all time is Marquee Moon by Television...I've listened to that over and over and over...that and Bob Dylan's "Don't Think Twice, It's Alright"....I don't even know why, but I guess thats the point.

I love the recording of Oh No with Collins that was put on Weasels Ripped my Flesh. I find it beautiful in fact. Everything from his voice, to the words, the sound of the bass and short bit of sax towards the end.

Others however have been revolted by it and were almost violently sick thinking that I must have been insane for liking something so shit by someone who couldn't even sing....!

I don't know how anyone could feel that way about the glorious Ray Collins... The same people who think Bobby Martin is a great singer?

One song that I really like that hasn't been mentioned here, is Television's Little Johnny Jewel. And of Zappa's less popular tunes, I quite like I Don't Even Care and H. R. 2911 from the European version of Meets The Mothers of Prevention.

Kevin Coyne's collaboration with Dagmar Krause is probably not very popular either, but I liked those songs the last time I heard them, about 30 years ago 8)

Blame It On The Rain by Milli Vanilli. People that say it doesn't rock are just jealous.

OK. This probably isn't quite what you mean but I'll choose 10CC's "I'm Not In Love". I think most people do get this but I've come across a few people that totally miss the point (usually women). The people that don't get it think it is an assertion that they indeed "are not in love". Most people, I think, do realize that the singer really is in love and that he is in denial.

Yup, that's exactly it! He's only keeping a picture of this girl to cover a spot on the wall. Suuuure.... :mrgreen: I've always loved the song, but when it came out ('74?), I was in junior high and the part when the woman says, "Be quiet, big boys don't cry, big boys don't cry, etc...", made many girls cluck their tongues and say how DUMB it was. Ah phooey. It added more to the song, maybe a memory from the guy's past. Mysterious and lovely.

Two songs on the soundtrack from The Sting (the movie)
both written by Marvin Hamlisch.

"The Glove" and "Little Girl".

Check them out.

I really like Money Changes Everything by Cyndi Lauper. She did make a couple of good songs.
