Marooned - Klaus Schulze
Dungeon - Klaus Schulze

these two instrumentals, I listen to in the dark nearly ever night. I just "YouTube" them and play them. They really challenge my speakers, but most importantly....

....they take me away! Have you ever drooled while listening to music?

(edited - apparently my original comment, now removed, was taken to be somewhat derogatory, but that was not intended.)

I'll try not to be too obscure; I offer a baker's dozen:

The Bears: Figure It Out
Indio: Hard Sun (but some months ago I was in a restaurant and heard a cover version on the in-house music system)
Tonio K.: Stuck (a song from the 90s that's just right for today)
Daniel Lanois: Still Water
Dave Mason: Only You Know And I Know (ok, maybe some others know this one)
Elvis: Cotton Candy Land
Rutles: Joe Public
Spirit: Why Can't I Be Free
Steppenwolf: Berry Rides Again (how many song references do you count?)
Ten Years After: Choo Choo Mama
Pete Townshend: Second Hand Love
Waxing Poetics: Baby Jane
Neil Young and the Shocking Pinks: Payola Blues

Keen,

A few factors. However you define "obscure" or lesser known and it should be what you consider a pretty great song. I left those things up to the poster to decide... and so far I just see each persons own interpretation.

I live in the US as well but sometimes you get better deals on the UK site. I always check there and compare pricing (including the shipping) and I find many times I wind up getting a better deal on box sets on the UK site. I think I saved about 10-$15 on a Smith's boxset compared to the US site.

R&RS...Radio Birdman kicks azz. Their 2007 gig @ the High Noon Saloon in Madison is one of
the best shows I've seen thus far in the 21st century!

Edit: Two Tub, (Re:Radio Birdman kicks azz.)

Indeed they do. I was gonna put in that post that everyone should at least have The Essential Radio Birdman (1974-1978) but I didn't want to seem pushy. :)
