Although I think there has been another thread about this topic, I'm going to jump in again! I wonder if any of my choices stayed the same?

2. Two out of three ain't bad - Meat Loaf

3. Year of the Cat - Al Stewart

4. Cruel to be Kind - Nick Lowe

5. I Don't Like Mondays - Boomtown Rats

7. (What's So Funny About) Peace, Love and Understanding - the Elvis Costello version

8. Maybe I'm Amazed - Paul McCartney

9. Theme From Shaft - Isaac Hayes

10. Mr. Big Stuff - Jean Knight

(figured I'd avoid EC/Rasp. stuff)
