good question.

the beatles - rain
u2 - always
screeching weasel - punkhouse, kamala's too nice (or at least it's my understand that they're b-sides. i could be wrong. in that case, strike them from my list. but somehow i doubt anyone in here is going to know the difference)

i'm sure i'll think of some others.

B-sides eh?

Well I love Lady With The Spinning Head and Salome.

but others:

Radiohead - A Reminder
Coldplay - Crests Of Waves, I Bloom Blaum, Animals, and a hell of a lot more other than those
Bright Eyes - Neely O'Hara (sort of a b-side since it's on an EP not a lot of people know about I guess)

  • The Beatles--"She's A Woman," "Rain," "The Inner Light," "Old Brown Shoe"
  • Oasis--too many to even know where to start
  • Pearl Jam--"Long Road," "Dead Man," "Leatherman," "Undone"
  • Radiohead--"A Reminder," "Cuttooth," "Fog"
  • Elliott Smith--"A Living Will," "Our Thing," a bunch others
  • U2--"The Three Sunrises," "Lady With the Spinning Head," a bunch others
(Edit: Oh, and I don't know if it's a B-side or just an outtake, but No Doubt has a song called "Everything In Time," and it's the only song of theirs I like.)

I really have very few B-sides apart from U2's. But yeah some of Oasis are very good. Suede also have some good B-Sides.

Acquiesce is a b-side? You're right but I'd never noticed that.

Coldplay - 'I Ran Away' and especially '1.36'...actually hearing these I wonder why the new album isn't that great...
Manic Street Preachers - 'Prologue To History'
Belle & Sebastian - 'Photo Jenny', 'Marx and Engels', 'Your Cover's Blown'
Idlewild - 'These Are Just Years'
New Order - '1963' (or this could be a double A-side)
PJ Harvey - 'Memphis'
Most of Suede's B-sides are stellar. 'The Living Dead', 'My Dark Star', 'Whipsnade', 'Killing Of A Flashboy' etc.
Blur have sevearl good one. 'Young and Lovely' really stands out.
