    Never heard of it, but after reading about it, it sounds fascinating. I'll probably spend the rest of the day thinking up my list ...

    Who - Who Are You?
    Iron Butterfly - Indagadadavida (sp?)
    Eric Clapton - Layla (original)
    Youngbloods - Let's Get Together
    Darude - Sandstorm
    Dirty Vega - Days Gone By
    plus a really long classical piece (Beethoven?) to cleanse the palate
    This was my list in 2004 (post #2, as 'guest', before the days of registration) and here, 15 years later, only the top 4 would still be on my list, and it would be too difficult to even name 6 more that I would have any confidence would remain on the list for long, even at my advanced antiquity.

    I seem to recall hearing Desert Island Discs (or perhaps a promo for it) on NPR back in the '80s.

    July 4 TV brought some nitwit beach party movies and I caught a few sec's of Eric Burdon and "We gotta get out of this place." It was written by Mann and Weil that superstar team so the Animals must have covered it, but I don't know any other group that sang it?
    It was a perfect Vietnam song.

    It was also the theme song to any all-boys boarding prep school.

    The tune was first recorded by The Animals. Thanks to my sister, I heard the song by The American Breed as a version was on an album of theirs. This was prior to "Bend Me, Shape Me" and the group morphing into Rufus prior to Chaka Khan joining.

    Great list ... although my Beatles song would be Golden Slumbers/Carry That Weight medley, and my Clapton (Cream) song would be Crossroads.
