    The Fall: Blood Outta Stone (A side = White Lightning)
    _

    Tones on Tail: Twist (a lot of people's favourite Tones on Tail song, including mine, and even its creator Daniel Ash, yet it was a B.
    (A side = Christian Says)
    _

    Bauhaus: Boys (A side = Bela Lugosi's Dead)
    _

    Love and Rockets: Holiday on the Moon (A side = Kundalini Express)
    _

    David Bowie: Velvet Goldmine (A side = reissued Space Oddity)
    _

    Adam and the Ants
    : Beat My Guest (kiddies favourite puts fearsome S&M sex song on reverse of novelty hit. Ha! A side = Stand & Deliver)
    _

    John Cale: Rosegarden Funeral of Sores (very, very dark, and very influential. Often forgotten in the shadow of the slightly earlier Iggy The Idiot and Bowie "Heroes" albums as an important part of what immediately preceded and partially led to the soon to be thriving UK "post punk" / goth "movement". Bauhaus covered it not long after Cale's original was obscurely released on a 45 that bombed. A side = Mercenaries).

    I've seen quite a few mentions of Erotic City and She's Always in My Hair by Prince, but not too many people have said 17 Days. The Purple Rain sessions, hell 80s Prince in general, were just full of great music.

    I've been listening to a lot of Petty recently. (RIP, Tom.) The other one that immediately came to mind was Gator On The Lawn. I don't think Petty and The Heartbreakers ever cut a more fun song!
