good grief. I may or may not scrounge up the CDs and mp3s to create this...but I wanted to try the formulation again, using as few of the artists I used before as possible (I decided the ubiquitous Mr. Dylan would not be worked around). What shocked me was the Ben Folds Five cover by Bette Midler (on Bathhouse Betty)...that's bizarre. The shakiness referred to in the title comes from the fact that "Sister Morphine" was co-written by the Rolling Stones and Marianne Faithfull, but Ms. Faithfull recorded it first, on 1965's "Come My Way" - 6 years before the Stones supplied a version, on "Sticky Fingers". So I counted it. If that (or anything else) nullifies the mix, you have my apologies. And a keener sense of the word "technically" than i do.

Eh, I don't think I'll complain about the Marianne Faithfull thing. Me, I'm just trying to conceive of the Everly Brothers doing a Dire Straits song...
