Isn't "I won't Back Down" just Tom Petty...? I can't remember now. Either way - excellent choice!

So I go with:

American Girl - Tom Petty
Tweeter and the Monkey Man - Travelling Wilbury

I think I remember that one from early high school. Or am I getting it mixed up with that song about Mozart? How did that go again...? The one that ends with the singer saying' Woflgang Amadeus Mozart found dead". I always thought that was so sad.

Ah Herr Bert - nice choice!

I choose Gogol Bordello's When The Trickster Starts A-Poking (Bordello Kind of Guy) and Through The Roof 'n' Underground.

Meatloaf has definitely had his moments. I see where Bat Out Of Hell III: The Monster Is Loose was released in October, 2006.

Isa wanders off to put that on her shopping list...

Occurance on the border, could have something to do with travel. So that's why I chose that song.

I can't choose, as it comes to Gogol Bordello, but I also like When the trickster starts a-poking, but also Boro Faro and Illumination. (even the cover version of Mala Vida, is good, in a funny kind of way), Start wearing Purple (like Illumination) became a kind of special song for me.

I know this band for quite a while, and saw them perform live, for the first time in December 2005 in Amsterdam ... WOW!!!, that kicked ass. I think it is the best gig I've ever seen.

I think you are mixing it up with "Rock me Amadeus". I just listened but I can't find the words you remember. But there are a couple of versions of that song. I know there is a really different version released in the US/Canada at that time, because the original has a lot of German lyrics, that were almost completely removed from the version released elsewhere.
