Beatles' "Don't Let Me Down" (b-side to "Get Back", what were they thinking when they didn't include this one to Let It Be)
Queen's "Soul Brother" (b-side to "Under Pressure)


Those were the first two to come up in my mind, maybe I'll remember some more

Grant Lee Buffalo - I Will Take Him.

I cannot find it on Youtube, but it's a pearl. Some of my favourite lyrics too, sinister stuff:

A flat-footed traveler came in off the street
And opened up his carpet bag of Persian at my feet
And gathering up the amaranth trampled 'neath his heels
I've come for your brother he said pointin' to the fields

Blazing now flames of blue
Brace yourself I will take him from you

On the topic of Wish B-sides I can easily say that most of the B-sides were better than the A-sides and indeed the poppier moments on Wish

The Twilight Garden (B-side of High) also belongs in my list. Why the Cure'd relegate it to B-side status is beyond me. Same with Halo, and the Big Hand.

DEVO has a couple that probably should have made it to the actual album.

Social Fools, Turnaround, Mecha-Mania Boy..
