  • union of the snake
  • to the shore
  • rio
  • notorious
  • palomino
  • midnight sun
  • love voodoo
  • lady xanax
  • mars meets venus

  • even better than the real thing
  • seconds
  • the fly
  • discotheque
  • a day without me
  • running to stand still
  • wire
  • promenade
  • please
  • zoo station
  • the fly

the police:
  • every breath you take
  • i burn for you
  • wrapped around your finger
  • when the world is running down...
  • canary in a coalmine
  • can't stand losing you
  • invisible sun

no doubt:
  • trapped in a box
  • let's get back
  • doormat
  • don't speak
  • ex-girlfriend
  • hella good
  • making out

that's all i can think of for now...
