I would disagree on "Sweet Dreams", which for whatever reason I'm just over, but I know how you are about AL. I would also submit "(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love, and Understanding" (a current fave) and "Blister in the Sun" (a longtime fave that I discovered when I was actually in college).

Holy fucking shit! A cogent and relevant commet with valid suggestions and admirable taste! What's more, I know these are truly your opinions. I am stunned and impressed. I am really not trying to mock you, I am just in awe. Kudos, Red.
