Here’s their list.

2. Wish You Were Here – Pink Floyd (#324)
3. Alison – Tufts Beelzebubs (orig. Elvis Costello, #323)
4. Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood – Elivs Costello/Santa Esmerelda (orig. The Animals, #322)

10. Heart Of Gold – Neil Young (#303; also a cover by Johnny Cash)

Song I used to have but don’t any more: “Comfortably Numb”, Pink Floyd (#321). Again, I once had “The Wall” on casette. That was a long time ago.
Song I don’t have but should, part 1: “Iron Man”, Black Sabbath (#317). To remind me that I didn’t waste nearly enough of my youth on heavy metal.
Song I don’t have but should, part 2: “One Way Or Another”, Blondie (#305). Am I the only one who sometimes thinks this is a Pretenders song? Because it would have worked well as a Pretenders song.
