Brain Game: B-sides

This isn't a full-fledged logic puzzle, as you need only place five items in their correct order; but it should provide a nice challenge for a Monday. Good luck!

A local "classic pop & rock" radio station offers listeners five songs in a row by five different artists whose names start with the same letter of the alphabet. (This is unfair to Queen and ZZ Top, mind you, but we won't go there.) One of these five-song sets was comprised of songs by Blondie, the Beatles, the Bee Gees, the Beach Boys, and the Bangles. Based on the two clues that follow, can you determine which artist was played in which order during the set?

1. The Blondie song was played just before the Beach Boys track, and sometime after the Beatles hit.

2. The Bee Gees single was the second song to be played after the Bangles tune.

Here is the SOLUTION.
