I drew up this list months ago: forgot to check the links were still valid before submitting it. I appreciate your efforts to salvage the situation. The worst-affected casualties seem to be Killing Joke's "Requiem" and Magazine's "Shot By Both Sides": I think I'd posted links to the original single versions with dull home-made vids to accompany, had I? The alternative versions available are not great adverts for the songs, unfortunately. Since nobody has voted yet, perhaps I should just replace these nominations with something else?

another possibility would be this link for Requiem by Killing Joke :)

unfortunatly I couldn't find a direct link for "Shot by both Sides", but you can listen to it with this site (if anyone DOES find a direct link to this song, please let us know :) )

last, but not least, residents of the US and the UK can listen to both full tracks on last.fm:

Requiem - Killing Joke

Shot By Both Sides - Magazine
