Pick up Oasis' The Masterplan CD. Many of those B-sides are crackin' tunes, and better than some bands' A-sides.

Oasis - Talk Tonight, Going Nowhere, Listen Up, Rockin' Chair, Half The World Away, The Masterplan
Radiohead - Cuttooth, Fog
Coldplay - Gravity, Sleeping Sun, Crests of Waves
The Beatles - Rain, The Inner Light
Led Zeppelin - Traveling Riverside Blues (may not be a b-side but it is my fav non-album song of theirs!)
U2 - Love Comes Tumbling, Deep In The Heart, Luminous Times, Walk To The Water, Spanish Eyes, Lady With The Spinning Head, Satellite Of Love, Even Better Than The Real Thing (Perfecto Mix), Holy Joe (Guilty Mix)....... too many to list

This is the second song on News of the World.

I was under the impression we were talking about songs that aren't on actual albums...

PJ Harvey's 'Memphis' is complete and utter brilliance.

A recent discovery that I've liked a lot is 'Gates of the West' by the Clash. It's sung by Mick Jones and has some very neat guitar work.

And Belle and Sebastian have some lovely songs on their singles, but they're not necessarily B-sides I guess 'cos most of them are on EPs and stuff. 'Your Cover's Blown' is a particular favourite.

That's a B-Side?! But that was (and is) my favourite James song! I've only got their 1998 Best Of (I know, I hang my head in shame) you see so I didn't realise.

As for my other favourite B-sides I'd go with Snowed Under by Keane (best song they've ever done in my opinion) and I'd agree with Bonomaniac, all 14 tracks off Oasis' The Masterplan B-side album are worthy of inclusion as would be Idler's Dream one of their later B-sides.
