    The Cranberries, *Dreams
    Stevie Nicks, *Just Like The World We Know

      Uh-oh, I forgot Layla! I might have to swap out either The Band or Dylan for it!

      Act 3 - I don't have any Beatles so I would probably swap out the Bowie for a Beatles album (or sneak an extra one onto the island).
