    Speaking of Dr. Hook, how about "Sharing the Night Together"? Sappy, but when you were young and in love ... ::)

    Speaking of Exile, "Rocks Off", "All Down The Line:" and "Rip This Joint". Some of the best Stones songs ever.

    Some other great Stones semi-obscurities: "Dandelion", "She's A Rainbow", "Little T&A"

    Plant - "Burning Down One Side"

    Rod Stewart - "Sailing"

    The Kissers, a Celtic rock band from Madison, Wis., do the most ass-kicking live version of She's a Rainbow, complete with strings, a kick-ass performance by their female vocalist and damn fine version of the piano solo. But copyright issues prevent them from releasing it, dammit.

    Lots of hidden gems in Who, Stones and Kinks catalogs. Even the freaking Hollies, hell yes. Recently I've been getting back into the Animals...a ballsy alternative to the cutsier British Invasion stuff. "It's My Life," "Don't Bring Me Down"...even the Hendrix-esque "Sandoz."
  9. Odd, because it's a signature hit record, but...
    The Thrill Is Gone - BB King.
