Hour 2—70s: A’s and B’s

A puzzle playlist. This hour, 7 ‘double shots’ of hit songs, and their terrific flip sides. The flip sides are listed first among all the pairs. There’s only one pair here that I would consider to be by an ‘obscure’ artist. If you can figure out the playlist titles and artists (before they’re played!), I tip my Altoona Curve cap to you (Yeah, I know—it’s tough). –Marc

A hint to those who've never solved cryptograms: Look for common and repeated words in the puzzle. The slashes are just to separate words and names for clarity.
And: V equals H, and N equals R.
