Mix CD - Opening Track

Anyone have a great, great song to open up my new mix cd.

My last mix opened with ELO's Mr. Blue Sky and it alwys got the party started right. Looking for another killer track like that.

To help some of the songs already picked out for the cd are:

Ryan Adams - To be young.....
James - Laid
Outkast - Whole World
Frank Black - Hang On To Your Ego
Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Maps
Specials - Pressure Drop
New Pornographers - The Laws Have Changed
Rocket/Crypt - Young Livers

etc.......

Quite an eclectic mix I know but I need to find that great opening track.

Thanks.

It really depends on what song you plan on putting next. The most important part of a mix-anything is flow.

I thought he already gave seven tracks, although not necessarily in order....

.... my suggestion to start any compilation is either Marc Bolan's "20th Century Boy" or "Should I Stay or Should I Go?" by the Clash.
