(SOUNDBITE OF THE CLASH SONG, "SHOULD I STAY OR SHOULD I GO")

RAY SUAREZ, HOST:

(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "SHOULD I STAY OR SHOULD I GO")

(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "DON'T YOU")

SIMPLE MINDS: (Singing) Don't you try and pretend. It's my feeling we'll win in the end... Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
