I think at this point in the countdown I was starting to fear I would run out of blank/expendable cassettes on which to record the proceedings, so I tried saving space by waiting to see if I knew the song before hitting rec. For this reason, I am not sure of a lot of the songs’ positions in the countdown. So here is a selection from the mid-600 range.

685. Lucy In the Sky With Diamonds – Beatles
684. Ship of Fools – World Party

Low Spark of High Heeled Boys – Traffic

Terrible Lie – Nine Inch Nails
Subculture – New Order

The Drama – Erasure
Take The Skinheads Bowling – Camper van Beethoven
Such a Shame – Talk Talk

Never Take Me Alive – Spear of Destiny

The Passenger – Siouxsie and the Banshees
641. Dear Prudence – Siouxsie and the Banshees
640. Strange Attractor – I.C.E. (oh dear oh dear, this is the awesome song that cannot be found – see this forum post from 2001. if anyone has a copy, please share!)
639. Hungry Like The Wolf – Duran Duran
Do You Want To Tell Me – Grapes of Wrath
Holiday in Cambodia – Dead Kennedys
Don’t Go – Yaz

Let Love Rule – Lenny Kravitz
Misty Mountain Hop – Led Zeppelin
Tubular Bells/Theme From “The Exorcist” – Mike Oldfield
Frankly Mr. Shankley – The Smiths
Taste the Pain – Red Hot Chili Peppers

Blitzkrieg Bop – Ramones
In The Mood – Glenn Miller Orchestra (on this list most likely due to the popularity of Jive Bunny and the Mastermixers’ 1989 remix of this number, Swing the Mood)
Alabama Song (Whiskey Bar) – The Doors
The Caterpillar – The Cure
