Some Tunes

I recently got a gift of 10 free songs via an internet deal (we regularly do surveys, and this was one of the rewards for doing the surveys). I have already picked the following songs:
  • Midnight Star: No Parking on the Dance Floor
  • Midnight Star: Freak-a-Zoid
  • Newcleus: Jam On It
  • Iron Maiden: Rime of the Ancient Mariner
  • Stryper: To Hell With The Devil
  • Social Distortion: Ring of Fire
  • Styx: Mr. Roboto (which, incidentally, was the first 45 I ever bought)
  • Warren Zevon: Werewolves of London
What should be my final two choices?

Mark votes for his new favorite song, Taking Care of Business. Which he likes to sing.

Since you are obviously an 80's funk impresario, for our first choice, how about "Heartbreaker I and II" by Roger and Zapp (alternate selections could include "Emergency" by Kool and Gang, "Electric Kingdom" by the Professors of Funk, "Flashlight" by Parliament, or "Brick House" by the Commodores).

Then, for an unexpected swing in another direction, here are ten more possibilities:

"Jungle Love" (Steve Miller Band)
"Love Stinks" (J. Geils Band)
"Blue Collar Man" (Styx)
"Like To Get To Know You Well" (Howard Jones)
"We Are Family" (Sister Sledge)
"God Save The Queen" (The Sex Pistols)
"Call Me" (Blondie)
"My Ex" (All)
"It's The End of the World As We Know It" (REM)
"Grey In LA" Loudon Wainwright

A few more suggestions (I can't help it... I have no life)

"Alexander The Great" (Iron Maiden)
"American Mall" Hoag
"Birdhouse In Your Soul" (They Might Be Giants)
"Valley Girl" Moon Unit Zappa
"Pop Muzik" M
"Night Boat to Cairo" Madness
"Let The Music Play" Shannon
"Tack" Descendants
"Nuthin' But a G Thang" Snoop Dogg
"Such Great Heights" The Postal Service
"The Grand Illusion" Styx
"Tempted" Squeeze
"Dream Police" Cheap Trick
"Canned Heat" Jamiroquai
"Thriller" Michael Jackson
"The Bird" Morris Day and The Time
"Mo Money, Mo Problems" The Notorious B.I.G.
"Typical" Mutemath
"Precious" Depeche Mode

My wife says I'm exceedingly pathetic, so I need to stop now. Good Luck!

If I were going for Iron Maiden, I would have used "Run to the Hills," but so be it.

I would add Ozzy, "Crazy Train," and LL Cool J, "Momma Said Knock You Out."

How about "Hip to B-squared"...by Huey Lewis and the News.
