    Not the most obscure thing here, but “You Can Be So Cruel” by Royal Blood. While they’re on the rise, which is beautiful to see, this band (well, duo) is still sorely underrated as is, and if a listener has encountered them, it’s normally “Figure It Out” or “Lights Out” that gets the glory–and they are absolutely fantastic songs, don’t get me wrong. Their short discography is near-flawless. But that’s my nomination.

    Lover, You Should’ve Come Over by Jeff Buckley. Most people only know him for Hallelujah, but the mind-blowing lyrics, structure, and overall momentum of this song just make me stop and listen whenever it comes on my Spotify.

    What the Water Gave Me – Florence and the Machine

    Check out the non singles on Lorde’s *Pure Heroine*. Highly underrated debut album. She wrote the album at 15. I recommend Buzzcut Season, Bravado and Ribs.

    Carly Rae Jepsen – Boy Problems

    I feel like too many people gave up on her after Call Me Maybe. The entire Emotion album is fantastic and I love it.

    Heaviest Matter in the Universe – Gojira.

    “Goodbye” by Kesha. Everyone knows her as a dumb pop artist, but if you’re ever curious about hearing her real voice and having your heart ripped out, there ya go.

    I mean, it’s not unknown at all, but it gets overshadowed.

    I think **Ten Years Gone** by Led Zeppelin is a perfect 10/10 song that gets overshadowed by Stairway to heaven and all the other Zeppelin classics

    My Body is a Cage by Arcade Fire. I could listen to that song for days and days and never get tired of it

    [Acid Tongue by Jenny Lewis](https://youtu.be/2Qu11pBpRXw)

    Absolute favorite song and I’ve only met two other people that know of her, but everyone I introduce to her music ends up loving it. Truly great singer with really good story telling in her songs.

    I don’t know if it’s little known, but I started speaking the lyrics of It Wasn’t Me by Shaggy when I was out with my friends the other week, and they had no idea what I was talking about. Which is weird because I grew up hearing it a lot.

    You Know I’m no good by Amy Winehouse.

    Has a dope classy noir feel to it and great lyrics, yet is sadly overshadowed by Rehab. Don’t get me wrong, Rehab is a good song. It’s just that I feel You Know I’m no Good doesn’t get enough love.

    The old CBS golf theme. I have never watched golf on television, but I was pleasantly surprised when this popped up in my Spotify discover weekly playlist. Still have no idea how it ended up there.

    Also, most of Adam Young (owl city undercover)’s stuff is great, especially on Project Excelsior and Apollo 11.

    Also also, the version of While My Guitar Gently Weeps from the Kubo and the Two Strings credits was pretty great, but that movie bombed, so the cover was never big.

    Only a niche song but The Best is yet to come – Metal Gear Ending Song (all I know it as) the woman (now deceased I believe) is absolutely angelic.

    Step by vampire weekend is a 10/10 for me, it’s a decently well known band but I’m sure there are plenty of people who haven’t heard them

    “Blackbird” – Alter Bridge.

    Epic 8-minute journey. Also has a guitar solo that was voted the top solo of all time by some Guitar Magazine*, can’t remember which one at the moment.
