Overheard at the Counter: 100 Songs

MR steps up to the counter and says, "If Lou Reed can list his 100 songs, then so can I."

Niall Carter says, "Yeah, but Lou Reed was Lou Reed and you're, well ... you."

John Steppenwolf says, "Don't listen to him.  Whatcha got?"

MR slaps a list down on the counter ...
