Jam up and Jelly Tight is one of my favorites! I also LOVE Pillow Talk.

Some great stuff!
Frijid Pink, "House of the Rising Sun" (A GREAT version of the classic)
Runt (Todd Rundgren), "We Gotta Get You a Woman" (Loved his early stuff)
You probably own more music than anybody this side of anywhere. {{{envy}}}

Twenty? Bah, how about requesting iTunes to generate a 699MB random playlist to burn to a CD?

You know, like this one. :)

(My new car plays MP3 discs in the six-disc changer, so I'm amusing myself)

Ahh...but Andy....Chaz has probably that many tunes in a spare drawer.

Actually, since I have about 16 GB of tunage scattered among various drives, I could presumably fill up about twenty-three such discs.

Assuming, of course, that I don't rip any more vinyl or any CDs between now and then.
