Help Me Make an Awesome 35-song CD

I would like your help in making an awesome CD... The theme is that it needs to have a LOT of songs. So, let's all keep the song length under 02:30, shall we?

Anything's fair game... but try to keep the songs to 1 or 2 per artist please.

What are some good songs that fit the bill?

Some ideas so far:

Madvillain - All Caps (2:10)
The Avalanches - Avalance Rock (0:23)
Prince Paul - What U Got (The Demo) (2:29)
Air - Clouds Up (1:30)
Erlend ye - Sheltered Life (Remix) / Fine Day (A Capella) (2:04)
Manu Chao - La Marea (2:16)
Death From Above 1979 - Go Home, Get Down (2:19)
Dwight Yoakam - Crazy Little Thing Called Love (2:22)
Pavement - Two States (1:47)
Super Furry Animals - Torra Fy Ngwallt Yn Hir (1:54)
that dog. - Silently (2:26)
The White Stripes- Fell In Love with a Girl (1:51)
The Ramones - Judy is a Punk (1:31)
The Shins - Know Your Onion (2:29)
The Von Bondies - C'mon C'mon (2:15)
Badly Drawn Boy - Body Rap (0:45)
Beck - Puttin It Down (2:22)
Jon Spencer Blues Explosion - Dang (1:59)

I'll think of more later...

Something off Elvis Costello's Get Happy!!!, like "Secondary Modern" or "The Imposter".

Eno - "Over Fire Island"

ETA: "Chant" is much longer than I had remembered.
