A fine, eclectic selection velvetoneo, but I must point out that...

3. "Wuthering Heights" by Kate Bush actually from 1978...

(Unless you're thinking of the inferior remake she did of it in 1986...)

I'll replace it with "Atrocity Exhibition" by Joy Division, then. Thanks! I actually liked the remake alot, though, from a vocal standpoint, anyway. Kate Bush's whistle register is intriguing but sort of makes it grating and distracting for me at times. I can only take so much of it.
