Simon and Garfunkel's “Mrs. Robinson” outpaced Eddie Money's “Take Me Home Tonight” in the readers’ vote for last week’s installment of “100 Songs Every Long Islander Should Know.”

But light voting last week wasn’t enough to push Paul & Artie into the overall Top 5. For those keeping track at home, the current standings among readers are: 1. Straylight Run, “Your Name Here (Sunrise Highway)” 2. Billy Joel, “The Downeaster 'Alexa' ” 3. The Weather Girls, “It's Raining Men” 4. The Movielife, “Jamaica Next” 5. Bayside, “Montauk”

(By the way, you can keep voting for the songs from last week or any other week here on Backstage Pass. We'll tally all the votes at the end and see which songs were the readers' favorites.)

This week’s list includes some heavy hitters -- The Notorious B.I.G., Neil Diamond, Taking Back Sunday, Jennifer Lopez. But in a holiday week, will they gather enough support to shake up the chart?

No. 53 The Notorious B.I.G.
