13 good/ok.
2 channel changers:
"Last Kiss" is a horrible song regardless who sings it. Don't drive like a fruckin asshole in the rain and wear your goddamn seatbelt. Otherwise shut the fuck up about the consequences of your actions.
And #1.

Mockingbird was written by Inez Fox and her brother Charlie. Between 1963 and 1969, they released 15 singles as Inez & Charlie Foxx. Mockingbird, their first single, was their only top-40 hit, reaching #7 on the Hot 100 in September 1963. Inez also released 15 solo singles between 1960 and 1974. None charted. Mockingbird, adapted from the traditional lullaby Hush, Little Baby, has been recorded by more than 30 artists including Dusty Springfield, Foster Sylvers and Martha & The Vandellas. Aretha Franklin and an uncredited Ray Johnson recorded the song for Aretha's 1964 album Runnin' Out Of Fools. This was released as a single on November 16, 1967 and managed only two weeks on the Hot 100, peaking at #94.

25: LOVE JONES – BRIGHTER SIDE OF DARKNESS

I prefer the parody by Cheech & Chong

16: SITTING – CAT STEVENS

When asked what his own favorite song is:
Difficult, but I keep on coming back to a song called “Sitting”. It was reminded to me by a friend recently that it was a very important song in their life. And I think it describes a lot of my journey and where I am today because in the end it says “If I ever make it to the waterside I’ll be sure to write you a note”, I think that’s what I’m doing.

I didn't realize this was a remake. I remember seeing Dr. Ice's version (from UTFO) on BET. His version didn't pick up any steam.

Here is Murray Head's second single, The Bells Of Rhymney, released November 19, 1965 in the UK. (His debut single, Alberta, was released July 16, 1965.) The Bells Of Rhymney was written by Welsh poet Idris Davies. Pete Seeger wrote music for it and recorded it in December 1957 as part of a four-song medley with Sonny Terry. Seeger recorded a solo version in 1959. The Byrds recorded the song for their 1965 album Mr. Tambourine Man. It's also been recorded by Judy Collins, Cher, Chris Hillman, Roger McGuinn, Patty Duke and many others.
