    Definitely China and definitely Jamaica Inn.

    - 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. )

    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!

    OPHELIA.

    Glory of the 80s.

    (also, who the fuck hates Marys of the Sea? That song is amazing!)

    I'm really surprised to find that people dislike "Glory of the 80's" and "1000 Oceans". I think they're among her absolute best work.

    It's unthinkable to me that people hate Glory. I don't think it works live, but I love the album version and it's such a song that only Tori could do.

    Oh I forgot. Snow Cherries From France! I know most people hate it and I think it's mostly because they thought it would be something incredibly different after knowing it existed for years unreleased, and the comments from Neil about it being his favorite. I had no idea it existed until Tales came out, so I had 0 expectations.

    Honestly, I think a lot of these choices are songs that people are neutral/lukewarm about rather than hated. Or maybe they just have one or two very vocal detractors, or they were hated at release but not anymore? Mary’s of the Seas is not hated. I don’t think Jamaica Inn or She’s Your Cocaine or Dragon are either? Or Snow Cherries? They’re definitely not comparable to the actual enduring hate people have for Strong Black Vine or Maybe California or Not Dying Today

    @just owls I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone else profess love for DMMCTV! I’ve got a lot of love in my heart for that song.

    We are two three (thanks to @BrotherNamedErised) strong!

    I feel seen. I've never come across anyone else showing love for it either.

    Ooh, that reminds me - I LOVE "Don't Make Me Come to Vegas". Definitely in my 30 favourite Tori songs.

    I forgot to add Ireland, Ophelia and Maybe California. I don't mind them either. The Glory of the 80s hatred was always a head scratcher for me too.

    People hate Heart of Gold / Raining Blood / I'm not in love / Happiness is a Warm Gun? !!! There's not a single bad track on SLG in my opinion.

    my additions are Hoochie Woman and Witness. I can understand the hate, I just don't agree with it.

    I forgot VEGAS!!! I love that one too!! I didn't even think of Scarlet era because it's generally adored, but my favorite song from there is Your Cloud which doesn't seem to have a lot of fans either.

    I have always loved Heart of Gold, but I've heard people say it was noisy mess. It's the last time she ever committed crazy, panting Pele-style vocals to a record.
