          Some great songs in that list. Man in Black, Marquee Moon, Midnight Train and Motherless Child – all awesome songs. Kelis I’m not so sure about. Can I know to be cool, but am not aurally sophisticated enough to handle. In your lower list, Motorhead, MC5, King Curtis the Pixies and the Wedding Present all get my vote.

          I got R, and found it incredibly hard!

          By the way, I tagged you for another meme, on political influences.

          You did alright though Bob!

          Did “Stumbling and Mumbling” ever come up with a list?
