    I love a lot of 'em, but here's a few huge favorites that immediately come to mind:

    The Cure- "A Few Hours After This" (probably my all-time favorite Cure tune; even the very-different demo version is outstanding)
    The Wedding Present- "Niagara," "Gone" and "Up" (I hope all TWP fans are aware of this fantastic little tune)
    Pearl Jam- "Down"
    The White Stripes- "Honey, We Can't Afford to Look This Cheap"
    Guided by Voices- "Isolation Drills"
    The Jam- "'A' Bomb in Wardour Street" and "The Butterfly Collector"
    M. Ward- "Headed for a Fall"
    Sebadoh- "Say Something/Plate O' Hatred"
    Pavement- "Kris Kraft" and "Raft"

    I'm sure I'm overlooking plenty of Jam, Cure and GbV gems, but I'll stop here.

    My favorite B-side is "Why Does It End?" by the Flaming Lips. It was the b-side to "The Yeah Yeah Yeah Song". It is also my favorite Flaming Lips tune.
