Add some Steely Dan / Donald Fagan. Florida Room comes to mind, but there are probably 10 or more that would be welcome spice.

Steely Dan - Reelin' in the Years

   Your everlasting summer
   You can see it fading fast
   So you grab a piece of something
   That you think is gonna last

   You wouldn't know a diamond
   If you held it in your hand
   The things you think are precious
   I can't understand

   CHORUS:
   Are you reelin' in the years
   Stowin' away the time
   Are you gatherin' up the tears
   Have you had enough of mine

   You been tellin' me you're a genius
   Since you were seventeen
   In all the time I've known you
   I still don't know what you mean

   The weekend at the college
   Didn't turn out like you planned
   The things that pass for knowledge
   I can't understand

   CHORUS

   I spend a lot of money
   And I spent a lot of time
   The trip we made in Hollywood
   Is etched upon my mind

   After all the things we've done and seen
   You find another man
   The things you think are useless
   I can't understand

I have a mobile DJ biz with one job I've had for 13 years right on the Atlantic Ocean.

Your list combined with mine are pretty much on my "playlist".( I tried not to duplicate yours.) Here's my "office":

As for me being "younger", I graduated in 1970.

And you graduated in what year??

This is my playlist - we listened to it on the Fourth. There are a few patriotic songs mixed in because we were using it for the Fourth.

Well I guess you are “older” but we probably grew up with pretty much the same tunes.
