"DEEP PURPLE - When a Bland Man Cries"

LOL. I think its "When A BLIND Man Cries", though I kind of like your title better!

A song about Al Gore after the 2000 Supreme Court Decision?

All time best B-side, and this is non-debatable.

My sister had the 45 of "Help" and you flipped that sucker over and "I'm Down" was right there and it was the goods! The ball started rolling in 1965.

Lots of great picks here, but I've always gone with the Beach Boys' "Don't Worry Baby" as the B-side of "I Get Around" (as previously pointed out by Robert Bykowski and Jeff "a reviewer" on this thread.) My brother had the .45 when I was a kid and I literally wore out "Don't Worry Baby" to the point that the vinyl became unplayable over time.

I like "I Get Around" quite a bit, but I agree with Jeff that I could make an argument that "Don't Worry Baby" is my favorite Beach Boys song, period, which is saying a lot.

"Don't Worry Baby" is a landmark Brian Wilson composition; two years before "Pet Sounds", he's leaving surfing and cars behind (except metaphorically), and enriching the production on the song. A return shot at the British Invasion, which was in full swing.

I see you've already listed this song, Granpa Tom, but...

"2,000 Light Years From Home" was side-B of "She's A Rainbow", by "The Rolling Stones", I'm guessing late-1960s. I do remember that correctly, right?

"It's your turn to cry" DC5 -
B side of Come Home
Didn't wanna have to do it - Lovin Spoonful

I may be wrong about some of the A sides..Don't have the 45's anymore and my memory ain't what it used to be!

What's a "45"?

Just kiddin'
This is an easy one for me. I can think of many great ones (some already mentioned) but my #1 is:

"Hello, It's Me" by Nazz (Todd Rundgren's first band). It was the B-side to "Open My Eyes".

The b side to the 45 of "You Really Got Me" from The Kinks is "It's All Right" and for a song that is all but forgotten today it's a really good one.

I guess "Don't Worry Baby" references a real race after all, though, of course, the primary subject is l-o-v-e.

I just wanted to chime in that I agree 'Don't Worry Baby' is a really great Beach Boys song and I liked it better than anything from 'Pet Sounds'. 'God Only Knows' is close but 'Don't Worry Baby' was far more emotional to my ears. :-)
