Of anything from the rock/pop genres, what do you think the most underrated song is? There are many candidates in my mind, but I would have to pick Sarina Paris' "Look at Us".

To me the most underrated artist is Nelly Furtado. Certainly, everyone has heard of her, but I cannot figure out why her album Folklore wasn't a bigger hit. In my opinion, if you haven't listened to "Try", you should. "Forca" is also superb. They both made my "perfect songs" list.

Most under-rated artist is Mos Def man. He gets alot of credit from people in the Hip-Hop industry, but almost no one who doesn't listen to alot (and I do mean alot) of hip-hop has ever heard of him (except as an actor (ALSO underated!))

To be honest, I'm not sure that I ever heard of that artist before now, which goes to show how little I know about rap music.

That's a tough one. I'll have to say 'Hallelujah' by Leonard Cohen. Actually, just about any song by Cohen -- or perhaps 'The Mercy Seat' by Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds.

BTW: Johnny Cash does an AMAZING version of 'The Mercy Seat'. It's on the 'Unearthed' box set. And it's interesting too that Cash had such affinity with the darkest music of the 80's & 90's pop underground.
