That is, if one of your friends was ridin with you in the car, what song would you play for them if you knew they hadn't heard it? Any song will do (even if you think it's relatively popular). My recs are:

Tori Amos - Raspberry Swirl
Massive Attack - Teardrop

Anyone else?

Josh Ritter - "Bright Smile". This is the opening cut from one of the best records I've bought in the last year or two. The album ranges from Cohen-esque folk ("Bnne of Song") to Steve Earlish alt.country ("Man Burning" [with opening guitar torn from early Byrds]) and the occasional Dylan-style bitter tune ("You Don't Make It Easy Babe"). But this cut has a really warm feel to it that really opens things up nicely. I don't remember the last time I found such an evocative singer-songwriter.

Johnny Cash - "Hung My Head". Who knew that Sting could write a good morality story song set in the Old West? After hearing this I hunted down Sting's original and discovered he couldn't SING it. But Cash puts all his years, regrets and guts into this song. And wow, does the opening guitar strumming sound rich. An unassuming but grand song (and for kicks, skip next to "Sam Hall", an incredibly UNrepentant tale of murder -- would'a made a killer 45).
