99: Afternoon Delight

Assembled shortly after the Boston Red Sox won the 2004 World Series:
  1. Let's Get It Started - The Black Eyed Peas (this song was used in one of the many montages of baseball excitement on TV.)
  2. Staring At The Sun - Simple Kid
  3. Life Less Ordinary - Carbon Leaf (Worst band name ever. The song is good- they sounds like Mr Mister for the 21st century.)
  4. Old Days - Chicago (from the Starsky & Hutch movie soundtrack.)
  5. IGY (International Geophysical Year) - Donald Fagen (I see Donald Fagen's The Nightfly album in yard sales and used record bins all the time!)
  6. Mr. Blue Sky - Electric Light Orchestra (from the theatrical trailer for Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.)
  7. Ride - The Kleptones
  8. Float On - Modest Mouse
  9. The Spirit Of Radio - Rush
  10. Gimme All Your Lovin - ZZ Top
  11. Love Song - 311 (An inventive cover of the Cure song)
  12. Sleepwalker- The Wallflowers
  13. Look What You've Done - Jet
  14. History Repeating - The Propellerheads featuring Shirley Bassey
  15. Afternoon Delight - Will Ferrell & The Channel 4 News Team (I love the scene in the movie where they spontaneously sing this song a capella!)
  16. The Waiting - Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers (also used in Red Sox montages.)
