I was asking for criminally underplayed great songs, not just things we'd like to hear, or songs that could be played a bit more than they have.
- She Smiled Sweetly - something we'd like to hear, only played once, but not a great song.
- Beast of Burden - a great song, but been played 241 times, their 22nd most played song.
- Lady Jane is a great song, and played only 36 times. I think that's extremely underplayed.
- Little T&A, not a great song (IMHO), but played 103 times, to my surprise.
Any further thoughts?
Well it's been pointed out that "criminally underplayed" is questionable wording. Like how many warhorses can they get away with as a minor offence, at which point does the FBI get involved? You get what you ask for

anything off of disc two of Some Girls deluxe
Rip this Joint is not underplayed overall, since it’s been played 155 times, but 0 since 2003 is surprising.
Similar to Love in Vain - 161 times, but only 2 since 2003.
Also, Mixed Emotions — 118 times, but only 2 since 1990.
Some stats from [www.setlist.fm].
Memory Motel - 54 times, 3 times since 1999.
If You Can’t Rock Me - 45 times, 0 since 2003.
Lady Jane - 36 times, 1 since 1967.
Sway - 25 times, 4 since 2007.
As Tears Go By - 22 times, 1 since 2006.
Loving Cup - 22 times, 1 since 2006.
No Expectations - 20 times, 2 since 2003.
One Hit (To the Body) 18 times, none since 1989.
I’m Free - 17 times, 2 since 1969.
Tell Me - 10 times, 0 since 1965 (maybe not great, but this forum named after it and would work in concert.)
Heart of Stone - 7 times, 0 since 2002.
Salt of the Earth - 5 times, 1 since 1989.
I started arguing for No Expectations, but I guess I go with Salt of the Earth.
This one's horrible! It's the wart on the nose of the sg album!
