Gee, we have a video for every song; that's a first! Well, the video for #6 isn't of Neil Young, 'cuz all they have on the Yootoobes are covers, but I chose the cover version by Supergrass, in which the music is note perfect! And I'll warn ya, the video for #3 is kinda creepy. #4 is a live, record store performance by two former members of The Nerves, including the guy who actually wrote the song. I've always liked the Nerves' version better than Blondie's, although Blondie's is good, too. It's just a great song! I dedicate #5 to Tengrain, Fran, and PJ, who luvs dem dat '80s stuff. Oh yeah, be sure to listen to that Big Fat Glam Guitar solo on #7!

So, wadda you listening to? Please post your lists in the comments.
