Thanks again for a great comp! I love that you included my all-time favorite gospel song (Fugs). I've always enjoyed Joe Cocker's rollicking version of "Cry Me a River". If a sequel ever happens, I've got some suggestions: "Yellow River" by Christie, "The River" by Bruuuuuuuuce!, "Somewhere Down the Lazy River" by Robbie Robertson, "Rivers of Babylon" by the Melodians, "River of Dreams" by Billy Joel and "River Deep, Mountain High" by Ike & Tina. Can't wait to play this songlist while I sit down on this bank of sand and watch the river flow.
