my turn to make one

So now that the first one had been made, it was my turn to create a collection. But how do I decide which songs, and in what order? Since my musical taste had never included disco nor rap, I always found it ironic that I liked Blondie's iconic track "Rapture". So why not completely go for broke and start off my first foray into mix-tape making by having that be the leading track?

Now my rule was there was only to be one song per artist over all the collections of EGRs. But as we see here, I've got Sting as a solo artist as well as The Police... also a Pete Townshend track as well as a song by The Who. Eh, rules, shmules, they're different artists, ok? Oh, and didn't I already have a track by The Who in the original EGR collection? Oops, nobody's perfect, oh well.
