    2. The Beatles - Yesterday
    3. U2 - Streets
    4. Leonard Cohen - Hallelujah
    5. What A Wonderful World (which OneRepublic performed).

    Not a bad list!
    Ah, Jeff Buckley's cover of Hallelujah is definitely up there as is Johnny Cash's cover of Hurt.

    Hey, is it time for a top 100 list this year? It seems to happen every two years, no?
  2. 1. Get Out of Your Own Way ft. Wind
    2. Get Out of Your Own Way ft. No Wind
  3. stairway to heaven -led zeppelin
  4. The Smiths - There is a light and it never goes out
  5. Well, if we are being completely objective this might very well be the one.

    (Or one of a bunch of tunes by The Beatles).
  6. Obviously it’s The Best Thing
  7. what mix remix submix?
