Currently listening to Otis Reading, A change is gonna come.
You forgot "Seamus" by Pink Floyd off of the album Meddle. If you haven't heard it, give a listen, you'll understand why I would include it with your mix.
I haven't heard Seamus, but I did include Waiting for the Worms off of The Wall in my section on insects.
Juan is right on.. Seamus is a bluesy song and is quite excellent, providing you enjoy Mr. Floyd or, as his friends call him, Pink.
I'll have to pay a visit to the iTunes Store -- they pay me to say that -- and check it out.

Right now, I'm listening to old radio shows (currently an episode of X Minus 1 titled A Pail of Air.)
Been getting only one station at work, an oldies station. My mind has droned on with same Neil Diamond, Three Dog Night, and Elvis songs day after day after day.
BUT THEN...Just last week, the station changed formats! Now listening to Contemporary Alternative Rock!
Change is good... sometimes !
ah lum and abner, Jack Benny, Gunsmoke, the shadow, the green hornet, dragnet... we get them every Sunday evening from 7-11pm...my kids usually fall asleep reading...but on Sundays they fall asleep listening to oldtime radio...
Ah, Gunsmoke, Jack Benny, The Lives of Harry Lime and Suspense were on also (as well as one I personally wasn't that thrilled with, Frank Merriwell.) Where do you listen to the old radio shows?
THE BICKERSONS starring Don Ameche and Frances Langford. Unsurpassed in hilarity, and don't forget Fibber McGhee and Molly on the Johnsons' Wax Comedy Hour. I also really enjoyed Amos 'n Andy, even though it was racist in some respects.
I believe that most of the mystique of the olde radio programs was that they allowed us to imagine what the realities of the characters were without it being imposed upon us as it is in films and on television. This passive observation of the realities of others based upon someone else's subjective judgement is a lot less healthy for our minds and psyches than exercising our imaginations as old radio forced us to do.
Just another old-timer spouting off.
I'm listening to Neal Morse - ?, Spock's Beard - Day For Night and Transatlantic - Bridge Across Forever in heavy rotation.
88.5 WAMU in Washington DC has been doing old radio shows on Sunday. I just googled em and get a load of this, you can listen online to the "Big Broadcast by Ed Walker" wherever you are! Gotta love technology! They got more real audio and podcasts so if anyones flavor is bluegrass, jazz or folk...you too can download away.
I listen to Old Time Radio on WPR (Wisconsin Public Radio) 90.7 WHAD (they also webcast at http://www.wpr.org).
Here's the entire schedule through July (for anybody interested): http://www.wpr.org/otr/otrdarchive.cfmv
Sorry for posting the entire address, but I'm not tech-savvy.
Mary J. Blige, KRS-ONE, Tu-Pac, Run DMC, Kanye West, Public Enemy, Phil Colins, NPR News, Just to Name a few.
