Where can I find obscure music tracks online?

So, now that napster and audiogalaxy are long dead, where would you go online to find a really obscure song (like "Softcore" by Maurice and the Cliches, for example)?

Emule has a lot of content, but can be very, very slow (queues stretching into the thousands).

Soulseek is a secret.

Soulseek is probably the best place left for seriously obscure stuff like that, but it doesn't even seem to be available there. You might try ebay, perhaps.

Acquisition. I believe its just a Limewire connection, but it works well.

I tried soulseek before I posted, and now I've tried eMule. I guess I'll give Acquisition a shot.

Directconnect++ can alos be amazing if you find the right hubs.

Yeah, I was going to suggest DC++ too, but you need to share a lot to get in the hubs that have the really obscure stuffs.
