I didn't skim the list as well as I should have for multiple entries. But, at least none have three. :mrgreen:

Dylan has 3 entries (3,18, 55). Talking Heads (2, 39) & The Velvets (6, 65) also each have 2.

& Stevie Wonder if you include the same song twice.
Go your own way

I deleted the second "Superstition" list- that's how it appeared in an e-mail that COS sent out. :)
