    Songs you like (But most people hate)

    So I was shocked to hear that not everyone is a fan of Fat Slut, Strong Black Vine, or Sleeps with Butterflies. This thread is for those who feel they really love songs that are heavily criticized by the EWF community (especially the members of the forum) so let me start.

    Of course I adore ADP in its entirety, but obviously I won't list the whole album, so I my list is limited to just my very (unpopular) favourites :

    Big wheel
    Strong Black Vine (Especially the rant at the end of the live performances )
    You can bring your dog
    Marys of the sea (although TBK remains my least favourite record)
    Teenage hustling
    Fat Slut
    Dark Side of the sun
    Snow Cherries from France
    Heart of gold
    Flicker
    Maybe California
    Sweet the Sting
    Ophelia
    Jamaica Inn

    Interested to see what you guys think!

    Ooh... choices! Hahahaaha To each their own

    Off the top of my head, I can think of:

    The Power of Orange Knickers
    Cars and Guitars
    Witness
    Digital Ghost
    Secret Spell
    Welcome to England
    500 Miles (YES I SAID IT)

    Even if I like these songs, I'm only thrilled when TPOOK appears on a setlist. The others are more of a guilty pleasure.
    I will be safe in my frame.

    Oh yes. I forgot to mention I didn't adore Flicker that much, but after this years performance in Nashville, it hit me so hard.

    Datura
    Jamaica Inn
    Marys of the Sea
    Flicker (Live version only--I still cringe at the studio track)
    Wings/Chocolate Song/Whatever NI track people are hating on this week

    EDIT: Adding Glory of the 80s and Snow Cherries from France. When I put my list together, I didn't realize these songs were considered to be so disliked. But I love them both!

    Easy answer for me: Jamaica Inn. I totally love it, unabashedly, always have.

    Promise
    Heart of Gold
    Sister Named Desire

    I honestly can't believe a lot of songs mentioned here are widely hated (Marys of the Sea? Rose Dover? Martha's?)... China and Leather may get overplayed live but anyone who hates the album versions needs an intervention.

    Cars & Guitars has always been a favorite of mine.

    ADP in general is a solid album, and the last time she really blew me away with her lyric writing.

    Ireland never offended my ears the way it did with most people. I enjoy the vibe.

    As for China I think the lyrics are lovely, and the song would be too, if it wasn't boring people to death.

    - Ribbons Undone (KIND OF. I played it for my mom years ago as an example of Bad Tori Amos, but it brought her to tears and she told me how it reminded her of watching me grow up, which killed me a bit and now I am very protective of it. Also, it's pretty lovely live in the last few years.)

    - 1000 Oceans, but only after losing my mom. I always found it gave me a toothache, but jesus now..

    - Dragon (I'm not sure if this is hated by most, but almost every time she plays it live, I see people bitch in the setlist threads and I LOVE this song.)

    - Jamaica Inn (which is getting a decent amount of love in this thread, so maybe it's grown on us. )

    - Don't Make Me Come To Vegas (I genuinely love this song and when I found the forumz back in 2005 or so, I was horrified to learn not everyone did. )
