Help me make a "better" Outkast essential CD

I make these CDs for the car called "Essential Collections" of my favorite artists. Basically, I try to have practically every released radio hit and my personal favorites. I'm having some trouble with Outkast. Below is the current mix, which clocks in at 79 minutes. Help me swap some out, but it's got to fit on a 80 min. CDR.

1. Hey Ya!
2. Gasoline Dreams
3. Rosa Parks
4. PJ & Rooster
5. Ms. Jackson
6. ATLiens
7. Slump
8. Player's Ball (original)
9. Church
10. I'll Call Before I Come (I wouldn't mind dumping this one)
11. Skew It on the Bar-B (same)
12. Xplosion
13. Roses
14. So Fresh, So Clean
15. Idlewild Blue
16. The Way You Move
17. Ain't No Thang
18. BOB

Thanks fellas.

I personally feel that Da Art of Storytellin (ft Slick Rick) is an Outkast song with few equals.

I can't believe you don't have Draculas Wedding or Wheelz of Steel on there, not to mention Elevators which was their first big single.

I only recently got into Outkast. The above is just what I selected as personal favs off their albums. Thanks for the recommends, I will check them out.

EDIT: Dracula's Wedding is horrible . The other two aren't bad.

There's already an Outkast Essentials CD out, it's called ATLiens

Just kidding (well, kind of) but you have to add "Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik", "Elevators" and "Wheelz of Steel", as others have mentioned. Also "Benz or Beamer". Oh and get rid of anything after Stankonia! Just kidding (well, not really...)

I could be wrong but I think the Slick Rick collabo is either on a Slick Rick album or just released as a single. It's a hot song either way.
