A thread for those songs that weren't necessarily huge or iconic (though they may have been "hits" with genuine radio airplay back in the day), that you will still hear in the bank or a supermarket or a Sirius station in your rental car, and go, "goddamn, that's a good pop song."

I'm always putting The Outfield - Your Love on the jukebox at the local pub. I love hearing everyone sing along.


This song always gets me dancing. I'm dancing in my chair at work right now.

I don't think some of you understand what "huge or iconic" means.

I love Spacehog and Placebo, and therefore "In the Meantime" and "Pure Morning" qualify for me.

I love the hell out of this song. It was pretty big in 1995.

Definitely one of the more under appreciated songs of Electro Shock Blues that was a sleeper of a 2nd single
