Note: Another unofficial B List in which Dorian just mentioned the artists, not the song titles. Some artists had more than one song mentioned, in which case I have entered the one suggested the most often.  Specifically, Dorian wrote: This week's nearly-weres: Daniel Johnston, Nick Cave, Therapy?, Stevie Wonder and the Poni-Tails.
