No, I'm sorry, this will not do. The whole POINT of picking 20 is that it's just 20...although I will permit you the Specials, the Zombies, Moondance, Remain in Light, and Summerteeth. But Born to Run? Go stand in the corner...

Okay, I just noticed Good Old Boys, that gets you off the hook. Randy is the infallible touchstone of all musical taste.

All right, all right. I know it's against the rules, but I couldn't help myself!
As punishment I have listened to Cat Stevens "Tea For The Tillerman" 12 times in a row.
