Do any of you have a favorite B-Side, that out-shines the single ? For me it's " Halo " by The Cure. ( B-Side to Friday I'm In Love )

Yellow Ledbetter - Pearl Jam

There has been a thread before on this, just an FYI.

"La, La, La, He, He, Hee" b-side to "Sign 'O the Times" by Prince.

Practically any b-side by the Wildhearts and the Hellacopters. I think it's a sign of a great band if they can write strong b-sides.

"Singular Girl" from the Old 97's was released on a bonus ep that came with initial pressings of Satellite Rides. It's one of my favorite songs they've ever done.

:thumbsup: "Rain" is my favorite Beatles song.

Also "Strawberry Fields Forever" is far more engaging and superior to "Penny Lane." Although that single was billed as a "double A-side," it was Paul's song that more or less considered the real "A" and received more airplay.

17 DAYS was nearly as good as WHEN DOVES CRY, when it first released as a single.

Yellow Ledbetter gets my vote as well. It's in my top 3 for favorite Pearl Jam songs too.
