new years day
i will follow
city of blinding lights
all i want is you
bullet the blue sky
even better then the real thing
stuck in a moment
whose gonna ride your wild horses
until the end of the world
staring at the sun
where the streets have no name
sunday bloody sunday
i still haven't found what i'm looking for
angel of harlem
when love comes to town
with or without you
