1. Obsession - Animotion
2. You Owe Me Some Kind of Love - Chris Isaak (I *love* this older self-titled album - totally wore out my cassette as a teenager driving around listening to it)
3. Abracadabra - Steve Miller Band
4. Hesitation Blues -Earl Hines
5. Fix Up, Look Sharp - Dizzee Rascal
6. Strange Brew - Cream
7. Hesitation Blues - Nathaniel Street West (from Light out for the Territory)
8. Repeat of above BECAUSE IT'S SO SEXY
9. Time of the Season - The Zombies
10. Walk on the Wild Side - Lou Reed
11. Spin Spin Sugar - Sneaker Pimps

A note about Walk on the Wild Side: I first heard it (and my fave, Coney Island Baby) on The Best of Lou Reed - I didn't really know anything about Transformer when I bought that tape, I just wanted to hear where Cowboy Junkies got Sweet Jane. So it was news to me to watch this classic albums documentary and find out:
  • the true hero of Walk on the Wild Side was the bassist who needed to make twice as much money so suggested laying down TWO bass tracks
  • everything I love about Satellite of Love is actually David Bowie (FYI: my fave Bowie song is Sound and Vision)
