    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.

    ahahhaha I pretty much loathe every song you listed. But! Here are some of my Less Popular Faves:

    China (I have a soft spot for China. )
    A Silent Night With You (this one got to me after my husband and I had an argument and I was walking to work in the snow)
    Goodbye Pisces (i think the production is a bit twee but I like the lyrics and the layered vocals at the end)
    Rose Dover (come at me I love it)
    Wings (this song grew on me like mold and I love it now)
    Flicker (its fine! And the live performance really rescued it)

    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!

    Let's see, on the "tolerate" pile: "500 Miles" is a pretty and inoffensive pop song, "Big Wheel" is a guilty pleasure but a lot of fun, "Not Dying Today" is not especially good but it tries to have some fun in the middle of the joyless slog that is Abnormally Attracted to Sin, I hate most songs on American Doll Posse but "Secret Spell" and "Dark Side of the Sun" are not among the worst offenders.

    On the "love" pile: "Promise" is a genuine, moving song about a parent-child relationship, there is nothing schmaltzy about it, and it's the only Tori song where Tash's presence is absolutely irreplaceable and completely justified.

    Also, who the fuck hates "Snow Cherries from France"? Both that song and "Angels" are miles above the triple-A dreck of The Beekeeper.

    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.
