Yeah, "In my Body" is way overlooked. And I don't think that "My Mistake" has gotten enough attention, either.

James has some really good songs. I think The Boy is a great song that is often overlooked. But I definitely agree with what you said about The Bells... in fact, I might even go as far as to say that it's my least favorite SP song.

edit: Oh wait, I forgot about Le Deux Machina. Okay, The Bells isn't my least favorite SP song afterall. http://www.netphoria.org/wwwboard/smile.gif

I think In My Body is the kind of song that you either totally love, or you can't stand it. Personally, I think it is a very unique song... it's hypnotizing like Obscured, but has that sort of haunted feel of Blue Skies Bring Tears (album version) and Speed Kills (b-side version). But I think it pulls that feeling off better than any of those songs. It's one of the few long songs that I can listen to on repeat and not get tired of (Drown would be the other one).

But I also think it's an acquired taste... at first, I didn't know what to think of In My Body. I had to listen to it for a while before I realized what a great song it is. I guess some people aren't willing to give it the chance it deserves. http://www.netphoria.org/wwwboard/tongue.gif

Anyway, it's my favorite song on Machina 2. Well, tied with LMGTWTY.

No, No and NO! *******Stars Fall In******* Rocks so hard! My God, the SOLOS make you want to jump out of your seat and air guitar. The words are so good they can only be described as "Billy's". The line,"once my words were dangerous, now they just seem blastphemous" that is off the charts in describing the perils of growng up and finding your way thru this world...and I could pull like 10 more. And the oooh oooh oooh ooohhs!! Coolest thing ever!! You gotta love it! I've loved this song since I first heard it in Real Audio on the S-P.net like 4 years ago...and it still rocks justs as hard!

The song has a quality that I think usually makes into some of the best SP songs...songs like on Siamese and Gish where the songs are serious but they're fun too! I can't understand why this song (and way too many of the pre-gishers) just sat and collected dust...This could've been a finalle song live!

And this song never gets talked about.

I agree with most of the songs mentioned, especially Cupid de Locke and In My Body.
(While I really love Blissed and Gone, I don't think that song is overlooked. It seems to me that it gets a lot of recognition)

Anyway, I'd add to the list

-To Forgive
-The Last Song (I don't think anyone really dislikes that song, but it sure isn't discussed often...)
-TCTOM (yes, I do like that song!)

Cecil

Most everyone here likes the acoustic Blissed and Gone, but this board is mostly made up of Offical Release Haters.

In the same vein of B&G, I haven't heard much talk about Waiting since the sampler came out. I fucking love that song.

I also really like Soot and Stars, alot more than most of the rest of Judas O. Most everyone else dislikes it, but then again, alot of people like Winterlong too.

Only if it was officially released during the Machina era. And in many cases, they're perfectly justified in doing so.

I was refering to Blissed and Gone. I agree with you about the Machina stuff. I think they ruined Home, my favorite Arising song.

Yeah, I'm not fond of `Believe', it sounds like an ad for a bank or something. I don't mind some of his other SP songs - especially The Boy.

http://www.netphoria.org/wwwboard/biggrin.gif to Appels + Oranjes and Pug, especially Pug! I could also say For Martha - not because it's neglected necessarily, but because it doesn't seem to be recognised as one of Billy's all-time finest pieces of songwriting, which I think it is! Would have made an incredible single.

Right now, my favorite semi-underated songs are Pennies and Jennifer Ever. Also, (sorry to mention Zwan on the SP board hehe) I'm really loving Revolve but I never hear anyone else mention it when talking about Zwan.

Here's an interesting thought: Pug, but with the video for Ava Adore. I think it would have suited it quite well. During the choruses they could have opened the door and walked into an outdoor space - a little like Crowded House's video for `Don't Dream It's Over'.

Just a thought http://www.netphoria.org/wwwboard/smile.gif

Underrated song #2: Billy's version of `My Blue Heaven'. That's beautiful.

How did they ruin it? The m2 and Arising versions aren't very different from each other at all.

As for overlooked... I'd say a lot of the Judas O stuff i.e. saturnine, waiting, winterlong and the like. Also ascendo, siamese dream, transformer and the last song. And dammit, I love parts of Machina. Mmm... virex...
