This week in listage, my A.V. Club compadres and I take on the subjects of overlooked songs and arbitrary pop-culture guidelines. On the Inventory front, we round up 35 collections of b-sides, non-album tracks and stray songs that rival the proper albums by their respective makers. My picks include Tindersticks' Donkeys 92-97, the Walkabouts' Death Valley Days and Drunken Soundtracks, and, of course, the Who's Odds & Sods. Fake videos for choice tracks from the first two can be found below.
Meanwhile, in AVQ&A-land, we answer the burning question, "By what crackpot criteria do you pre-judge the mountain of pop-cultural product at your disposal?" (Okay, they don't pose it quite like that.) In my response, I argue against the watching of Sam Rockwell movies, much to the enmity and sorrowful disappointment of certain AVC commenters. Read away.
