    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.

    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.

    Ireland - I've always wanted to visit Ireland and finally did. This song played in my head the whole way there.
    Sweet the Sting - Love the choir and melody.
    Pink & Glitter - Unique to Tori's discography and appropriately cheesy. A bit too loud, but the sound's quite nice.
    Big Wheel - Fun. MILF and all!
    My Posse Can Do - The accent's a little grating, but it kind of works? Very catchy.
    Maybe California - I love this one - especially the Gold Dust version.
    Give - This one's all about those kickass drums!
    I'm Not in Love - One of my favorites off SLG.
    Your Ghost - The "Please" at ~2:07--most poignant moment in NOH imo.
    Giant's Rolling Pin - It has a lite-ADP sound but sonically doesn't feel as overbearing.
    Rose Dover - Interesting experiment... not fully realized, but with many highlights.
    Wings - Oddly the catchiest NI song for me. That chorus creeps up on you!
