Talking Heads sampler help!

Hmm, I know this community isn't very active, but I'll give this a try.

Question: If you were trying to introduce people to/entice others into appreciating Talking Heads, which songs would you be sure to include on a CD?

Life During Wartime (SMS)
*Love --> Building On Fire (TNotBiTH)
(Nothing But) Flowers (Naked)
I Zimbra (FoM)
Listening Wind (RiL)
The Girls Want to be With the Girls (MSaBaF)
Paper (FoM)
Drugs (FoM)
*Life During Wartime (SMS)
Girlfriend is Better (SMS)
Slippery People (SMS)
*Psycho Killer (SMS)
Making Flippy Floppy (SiT)
Crosseyed & Painless (RiL)
*And She Was (LC)
Dream Operator (TS)
Stay Up Late (LC)
*Road To Nowhere (LC)
Radio Head (TS)
Love For Sale (TS)
Sax & Violins (Naked)
Once in a Lifetime (SMS)
This Must be the Place (Naive Melody) (SMS or SiT)
Uh Oh, Love Comes To Town (:77)

* = ones I'm including for definite, no matter what!

As is probably clear I'm much too partial to Stop Making Sense, Little Creatures, and True Stories. Childhood nostalgia and a fondness for the poppier sound of things is clouding my judgment, so I was hoping that other TH fans could give some suggestions and opinions!

Please and thank you. :)
