        It seems like each of these discs has a least two real clinkers and a
token artist who was just outside the mainstream.  In this case, the clinkers
are the Los Lobos song (their only real hit was their remake of "La Bamba")
and "I Love L.A." by Randy Newman who really never made it that big in the
eighties (more of a 70's artist with "Short People").  The song outside of the
mainstream in this case would be L.L. Cool J's "I Can't Live Without My Radio"
which was on the forefront of the rap music scene of the early eighties.
Personally, I never cared that much for rap music, but it's nice to have for
perspective (plus they put it near the end of the disc so I don't usually
notice it (grin)).
