    It’s no good in the outside world, hopefully the space between my ears filled by the headphones will be better:

    1. Take Me As I Am (The Specials)
    2. Double Dragon Theme (Nintendo… really)
    3. Sum of Us (Jurassic 5)
    4. Love 24 Hours a Day (The Blasters)
    5. Sleeping on the Roof (The Flaming Lips)
    6. Mad Man Blues (John Lee Hooker)
    7. Honky Tonk Train Blues (Meade “Lux” Lewis)
    8. Lady Friend (The Byrds)
    9. I Can’t Explain (David Bowie, covering The Who)
    10. Love is a (Doggone) Good Thing (The Melodians)

    Sorry, my variety on the portable player is about one-third of what you might get on the master control jukebox. BTW, your #6 was from the Charlie Brown Xmas Special, right?
