By this I mean songs by an artist that don't really fit into their typical style or genre.
I thought I'd start this thread with the Art Garfunkel song "Take Me Away" (Linked at the bottom)

I always thought that this song wouldn't sound out of place on "Pacific Ocean Blue" especially the backing track which has melodic guitars and booming synthesizers and multiple sections, in my opinion it is the best song that Garfunkel done in his solo career.

"What Do You Know" by Left Banke. This is band with baroque, upper class, intelligent, mainly mid-tempo songs with intricate key changes. Then bam! - simple country-tinged tune sung in such way as if they'd been singing songs like it since beginning.

Short notice: the cat you see to the left is the best. Not counting your indoor cat who might have habit sitting at your left side when you post at SmileySmile.

Boy dislikes girl. The girl dislikes that boy. People dislike the boy AND girl. Question - WHO dislikes these people?

Pom pom generation thinks The Baby boomers can't hopscotch into admitting that they're ANYthing BUT cool & the boom they represent is archaic thing by now.
