James Grady, Last Days of the Condor: An addendum

One interesting feature of many books is that the chapters are headed by a quotation or other material.  One thing Grady has done is head some of his chapters with song titles, which make an interesting play list:

Buffalo Springfield, "For What It's Worth"
Bruce Springsteen, "Born to Run"

The Kingston Trio, "The Zombie Jamboree"
            (Written by Conrad Eugene Mauge)
Roy Orbison, "In Drams"
Jackson Browne, "Doctor My Eyes"

Bob Dylan, "A Hard Rain's a-Gonna Fall"
The Yardbirds, "Heart Full of Soul"

John Lee Hooker, "Boom Boom"
Warren Zevon, "Lawyers, Guns, and Money"
Jesse Colin Young, "Darkness, Darkness"

The Doors, "Light My Fire"
Tracy Chapman, "Fast Car"
John Stewart, "Daydream Believer"
             (Of course, the Monkees had the hit single)
Steely Dan, "Do It Again"
Richard Thompson, "I Feel So Good"
Bob Dylan, "Like a Rolling Stone"
