I love the energy of Kaleth's music and his love for his music, He makes me so happy, love salsaing round my kitchen singing along badly (I'm learning Spanish)3.T.Rex Raw Ramp
Raw Ramp has been my number one song of all T.Rex songs as it is just so sensual and sung so well
My Favourite from T.Rex at the moment is Venus Loon
It's got a great feel to it and great to sing along to4.Sublime Slow Ride
This just gets me, just so chills me out, the bass is amazing

My current favourite is hard as not easy to pick just one song, so I won't :) the first one isAm Rande der Nacht
and Die Nachbarn8.Subhumans
This song so rocks, I saw them in Camden, London a couple of years ago,as I had arrived at another gig the night before (it was a punk all dayer in Birmingham)and bloody missed them(even got a speeding ticket cos I knew I was late), Dick dedicated zyklon-b-movie for me and gave me a refund as I was on the Guest List!, so I bought some cd's and had a nice chat, what a lovely man!
The other song I like at the mo is Subvert City9.The Damned Neat Neat Neat
This song sends me crazy and I pogo up and down like a lunatic. The Damned have been a favourite for a long time, at one of their gigs (Christmas be Damned Tour in Glasgow) I got bodily thrown out by 4 bouncers (one for each limb) as I got on the stage (no mean feat for a woman and at a Damned gig) Captain Sensible just stood laughing, great gig!
