Four-Way Splits

I was feeling a little nostalgic the other day for the days not knowing any better than to make mix CDs with more than one song by a given artist (not counting mixes of just one artist)...so I came up with an idea: 90-minute, four-way splits...in other words, an equal number of songs (or at least time) by each of four selected artists, arranged for optimal flow...here's what I have so far:

Radiohead/Thrice/Tool/The Beatles (my four favorite bands)

1. Radiohead - Planet Telex
2. Thrice - Daedalus
3. Tool - H./Useful Idiot
4. The Beatles - A Day In the Life
5. Radiohead - Paranoid Android
6. The Beatles - While My Guitar Gently Weeps
7. Radiohead - Exit Music (For a Film)
8. Tool - Pushit
9. Thrice - The Melting Point of Wax
10. The Beatles - Eleanor Rigby
11. The Beatles - Happiness Is a Warm Gun
12. Thrice - For Miles
13. Radiohead - The National Anthem
14. Tool - The Patient
15. Thrice - The Earth Will Shake
16. Tool - Right In Two

The Bouncing Souls/Foo Fighters/Jimmy Eat World/The Lawrence Arms (just four bands that seemed to go together well)

1. Foo Fighters - All My Life
2. The Bouncing Souls - Lean On Sheena
3. Jimmy Eat World - Table For Glasses
4. Foo Fighters - In Your Honor
5. Jimmy Eat World - Just Watch the Fireworks
6. Jimmy Eat World - For Me This Is Heaven
7. Foo Fighters - Everlong
8. The Lawrence Arms - Your Gravest Words
9. The Bouncing Souls - The Something Special
10. The Lawrence Arms - Brickwall Views
11. The Bouncing Souls - Hopeless Romantic
12. The Lawrence Arms - First Eviction Notice
13. Jimmy Eat World - No Sensitivity
14. The Lawrence Arms - The Ramblin' Boys of Pleasure
15. Foo Fighters - My Hero (Skin and Bones version)
16. Foo Fighters - Next Year
17. The Lawrence Arms - The Raw and Searing Flesh
18. Foo Fighters - February Stars (Skin and Bones version)
19. The Bouncing Souls - Lamar Vannoy
20. Jimmy Eat World - Call It In the Air
21. The Bouncing Souls - Anchors Aweigh
22. The Lawrence Arms - Fireflies
