    What are your personal favourite B-Sides? B-Sides are very underrated I find very often eclipsing the A-Side, but still not getting the same exposure.
    Some of my favourites:
    Kate Bush-Kite
    The Beatles-Rain(Pretty much all of their B-Sides tbh)
    The Clash-1977
    The Clash-The Prisoner
    Suede-The Living Dead(Pretty much all of their B-Sides tbh)
    Bowie-Queen *****
    The Who-A Legal Matter
    Blur-La Comedie
    Dead Kennedys-Police Truck
    I've missed loads but nvm.

    Lilys- Hark The Open Energy Channel Is Icy Water Water Everywhere (one of the songs on the B-side to A Nanny in Manhattan).

    Bjork - Sweet Sweet Intuition (one of the songs on the B-side of It's oh so quiet)

    Kate Bush - Be Kind to My Mistakes (one of the songs on the B-side of 'This Woman's Work')
    Burning Bridge (B-side of 'Cloudbusting')

    Oasis - Round are way , The Masterplan (2 of songs on the B-side of Wonderwall).
    Oasis - Half the world away (B-side to 'Whatever', which itself was a stand alone single)

    The Stone Roses- What the World is Waiting For (technically a 'double A-side' but the other A side , Fools Gold , is more famous).
    The Stone Roses- Mersey Paradise (one of the songs on the B-side to 'She bangs the drums')

    The Beatles - I saw her standing there / This Boy (alternative B-sides to I Want to Hold Your Hand)
    The Beatles - Baby you're a rich man (B-side to All You Need is Love - both featured on the Magical Mystery Tour album)
    There are other good Beatles B-sides but they're either presented as double A-sides or extremely well known as songs in their own right.

    The Smiths - How soon is now (although released as a single a year later, originally a B-side I am reliably informed, of 'William, it was really nothing').
