At the moment, these ten are constant.
I could change this list on a near-daily basis

<FONT COLOR="3333FF">But Not Tonight</FONT>
<FONT COLOR="CC00FF">A Question Of Lust</FONT>
<FONT COLOR="6633FF">Get The Balance Right (Combination Mix)</FONT>
<FONT COLOR="6699FF">Somebody</FONT>
<FONT COLOR="CC00FF">Behind The Wheel</FONT>
<FONT COLOR="3366CC">Now This Is Fun</FONT>
<FONT COLOR="993300">Only When I Lose Myself</FONT>
<FONT COLOR="6699FF">Shake The Disease</FONT>
<FONT COLOR="FF3333">Dream On</FONT>
<FONT COLOR="339966">Home</FONT>

Aside from my list, Mechi's is more enjoyable
than the rest far.

...and I haven't felt so alive, in years.

Dave's and Jim's lists are very good. In fact, all the lists here are very good. I'm glad that we are filling the NWO with a good musical thread... is just what this site needed.

It's hard to believe that some of you did not list But Not Tonight... that song makes me go all goose-bumpy no matter how many times I hear it.

It also makes me want to grab my black leather jacket, faded old jeans and stand out in the pouring rain

"Oh, God it's raining
but I'm not complaining
It's filling me up
With new life"

Oh well, to each his or her own.

Personal Jesus

My Secret Garden
Here Is The House
The Great Outdoors
Ice Machine
Shouldn't Have Done That
Told You So
It Doesn't Matter Two
Agent Orange
John The Revelator

On a side note, I disregarded DM after Violator was burned out ad nauseaum. I detested every album/single released thereafter, and only recently discovered that Playing The Angel was a partial return to form. I purchased it, and love a whole 5 songs on it, but that's 5 more songs I ever thought I'd like from DM again.
