        Like the previous disc in this series, lots of big name bands with big
hits from the top 40.  The only exceptions are the "Empty Garden" song by
Elton John and "Ain't Going Down" by Eric Clapton.  Neither one of these songs
were really big, the explanation for them being on the disc is that the Elton
John song was a tribute to John Lennon's assassination, since it was a big
event and the Eric Clapton tune was because it was the first song that was a
hit for him in the eighties.  Both artists had bigger and better songs that
could have been represented here, and the explanations just don't hold for a
disc you're supposed to listen to, not study.  This disc is cool for the fact
that it had George Clinton on here too, whose music I hardly ever see on
