Des'ree #1 Des'ree - Life
I don't want to see a ghost,
It's the sight that I fear most,
I'd rather have a piece of toast,
Watch the evening news.
Des'ree Official site
Snap # 2 Snap - Rhythm Is A Dancer
I'm as serious as cancer, 
When I say Rhythm is a Dancer.

Snap on Wikipedia
Razorlight # 3 Razorlight - Somewhere Else
And I met a girl,
she asked me my name,
I told her what it was.
Razorlight Official site
ABC - Beauty Star # 4 ABC - That Was Then But This Is Now
More Sacrifices than an Aztec priest,
Standing here straining at that leash,
All fall down,
Can't complain, mustn't grumble,
Help yourself to another piece of apple crumble

ABC Official site
U2 - All That You Can't Leave Behind # 5 U2 - Elevation
I've got no self control,
Been living like a mole now,
Going down, excavation,
High and high in the sky,
You make me feel like I can fly,
So high,
U2 Official site
Toto # 6 Toto - Africa
The wild dogs cry out in the night,
As they grow restless longing for some solitary company,
I know that I must do what's right,
Sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti.
Toto on Wikipedia
Oasis # 7 Oasis - Champagne Supernova
Slowly walking down the hall,
Faster than a cannonball,
Where were you when we were getting high?

Oasis Official site
Duran Duran # 8 Duran Duran - Is There Something I Should Know?
And firey demons all dance when you walk through that door,
 Don't say you're easy on me you're about as easy as a nuclear war.

Duran Duran Official site
Human League # 9 Human League - The Lebanon
Before he leaves the camp he stops,
He scans the world outside,
And where there used to be some shops,
Is where the snipers sometimes hide.

Human League on Wikipedia
Black Sabbath # 10 Black Sabbath - War Pigs
Generals gathered in their masses,
Just like witches at black masses.
Back Sabbath official site
