Do you have a song that you reckon most people won't have heard but that you love and would recommend to others?

Mine is Wickerman by Pulp.

Thanks everyone, I'm hoping to spend some of the bank holiday relaxing and listening to some of your choices smile

Any more out there?

Duel, by Propaganda "the first cut won't hurt at all...the second only makes you wonder...."

I would have to say something from the album 1 Giant Leap - beautiful and inspirational, weaves together music from around the world, every track makes my hair stand on end, but this one is a good place to start: Braided Hair

MarisCrane Mon 30-May-11 08:22:45

I have another one actually: Ceiling Poem by North Atlantic Oscillation

LOVE Duel - good one.

Another one I like that not many people know is 'Nowhere Girl' by Anemotion.

Love this

It's by How to destroy angels and it's a relatively new track.

H2DA is Trent Reznor's project

My tastes are mainstream- 60/70s pop plus a couple of outliers- have to turn to Kate Bush.

One of my favourites by her is Heads We're Dancing, of all the songs!

Heads We're Dancing

And Nina Hagen, not sure if she's so much known over here:

Fisch im Wasser

Garage girl group from the 80s. Just brilliant

DarkVictory Fri 10-Jun-11 19:29:18
