Last weekend, in the midst of putting together a dinner-party playlist, I noticed something surprising: There are several hundred songs that I’ve never played on my iPod (which I’ve had for a year and a half) or the iTunes on my computer (which I’ve had for more than two years). And these ignored tracks don’t just include album filler that I haven’t gotten around to deleting; dozens of favorites have been sitting dormant for the last 24 months, just waiting for me to press play. Here’s my top five:

Groove Armada’s “At the River
The Jimi Hendrix Experience’s “Manic Depression
Kelli Ali’s “Psychic Cat
Madonna’s “Don’t Tell Me
Sade’s “Like a Tattoo

How about you guys? Give your music library a good, thorough once-over and then share with your fellow PopWatchers: What are the five best songs you never play?
