Reflections From the Looking Glass - 1910 Fruitgum Company (B side of Simon Says). I know it sounds corny, but it's actually a pretty good song.

The Boat That I Row - Lulu (B side of To Sir With Love).

Mississippi Delta - Bobbie Gentry (B side of Ode to Billie Joe). I think Mississippi Delta was supposed to be the A side.

My votes for best title ever -
The Birdman of Alkatrash - Strawberry Alarm Clock (B side of Insence and Peppermints) - followed closely by
Ah-Ah, Yawa Em Ekat Ot Gnimoc Er'yeht - Napoleon XIV (B side of They're Coming to Take Me Away, Ha-Ha)

Pretty Trippy.

"Since You're Gone" on the flip side of "Shake It Up" ~ The Cars

Posted on Aug 7, 2012, 8:26:37 PM PDT
"Far Post", the non-LP b-side of Robert Plant's "Big Log" single. Great, great song.

"Polly", the b-side to the Kinks' 1968 single "Wonderboy". In fact, I could probably list most of the Kinks' b-sides between 1966 and 1970 here.

And an obscure one, but one of my favorites -- the b-side of Dutch band Earth and Fire's 1971 single "Invitation" was a 4 minute re-recorded, condensed, more powerful arrangement of the 18 minute title track of their 2nd album, "Song of the Marching Children".

"Without You" - Manfred Mann
B side to " 5-4-3-2-1"

Numerous DC5 B sides:
Good Time Woman
Move On
I Need Love

All For My self - Them, B side to "Here Comes the Night".

Don't care if no one's ever heard any of them, they're great! You don't know what you're missing!

One of my favorites: Dandelion by the Rolling Stones - it was a B side in the UK, but in the US the single had it as the A side.
