Festive Fifty Wondrousness

Yup, folks, a wonderful 17 Seconds reader, David, has sent me all the tracks I was looking for yesterday. Great stuff, thank you, kind sir.

Orbital - 'Style.' mp3 (1999 Festive Fifty no.15)

Sonic Subjunkies - 'Do You Even Know Who You Are?' mp3 (1999 Festive Fifty no.16)

Kraken - 'Side Effects.' mp3 (1999 Festive Fifty no.26)

Plone - 'Be Rude To your School.' mp3 (1999 Festive Fifty no.38)

Miss Mend - 'Living City Plan.' mp3 (1999 Festive Fifty no.48)

Wheat - 'Don't Hold You.' mp3 (1999 Festive Fifty no. 50)

Cowcube -'Popping Song.' mp3 (2000 Festive Fifty no.30)

Lab 4 -'Candyman.' mp3 (2000 Festive Fifty no.35)

Mighty Math -'Soul Boy.' mp3 (2000 Festive Fifty no.39)

Meanwhile, I remember the film of The Beach being received somewhat disapppointingly in 2000, but the soundtrack featured two festive fifty entries that year, New Order's 'Brutal' (and not as you might have expected the soundtrack to contain, 'The Beach') and Orbital and Angelo Badalamenti's 'Beached.'

New Order -'Brutal.' mp3 (2000 Festive Fifty no.26)

Orbital and Angelo Badalamenti -'Beached.' mp3 (2000 Festive Fifty no.45)

Meanwhile (heh heh...) yet again, having difficulty tracking these tracks down, so if anyone can help that would be appreciated please:

From 1976:
Wild Man Fischer -'Go To Rhino records.' [Thanks Craig]
Matching Mole -'O Caroline.' [Now have it, thanks!]
Allman Brothers band -'Jessica.' [Now have it, thanks, Laurent]
Legendary Stardust Cowboy -'Paralysed.' [Thanks Craig!]
Racing Cars -'They shoot Horses Don't They?' [Thanks Steve!]

and from 1985:
Three Johns -'Death Of the European' [Now have it, thanks]
Woodentops -'Move Me' [Now have it, thanks]
1,000 Violins -'Like 1,000 Violins' [Now have it, thanks Mike!]

Still no Racing Cars, Eduardo? Give me 30 minutes and 17 seconds (sorry to re-use old gag and a 320 kbps rip from my own CDs will find its way to you.
How near is your list to completion now? missing anything? BTW, the Thin Lizzy from the 78 FF was the live version from 'Live And Dangerous', not the one I posted...I only know this because the 26 Dec 1978 show has just become available for the first time. Do you want that one too, buddy?

Thank you Steve, it has... and yes please!
