I've always had a fascination for songs that no one mentions.
To me it´s quite the same are songs mainstream or not, only what matters is the quality of songs. Of course it´s not very interesting to choose Kool Thing although there is nothing wrong in that song. In my opinion Society is a Hole and Kim Chords are not great songs although they´re as good as the most of the Sonic songs.

I'm a bit odd I know. I copied and pasted everyone's lists (off all 9 pages) into a spread sheet. I tallied them up. This is what happened. Of course "votes" aren't really votes, they're "mentions". Forgive me.

Some of them aren't songs, I have shied from listing the three piece from SYR6 as the band are accompanied by another musician and there's nothing from my favourite SY LP, Murray Street. Well, joint favourite with NYC Ghosts & Flowers, but really I prefer the live instrumental version of NYC G&F because I prefer music without vocals on the whole.

Remember that early instrumental jam version of the Sleepin Around Music that was put on the website at one point, sometime before the song's release? That was great.

yeah that was used as backing on a doc i saw on youtube

i'd never really got into Sleepin Around because of the vocal, some sy lyrics can be painfully bad, and that one is definitely up there. But the music was rocking!

still cant listen to the song though....

I'm not as down on the lyrics for 'Sleepin Around' as you, but I was nominating it largely for the music. It's a great intro, I think.

Funny, I was sure I had downloaded that version as mp3, but I can't find it, and I can't remember where it was downloaded from. Any help appreciated.
