- Sci-Clone - "Closer"
- Massive Attack - "Angel" (Album: "Mezzanine", Horace Andy's vocals on that track are just beautiful...)

'02/'03 college/US:

- New Order - "Temptation" (we had rented Michael Winterbottom's "24 Hour Party People" on DVD and I couldn't get that song out of my head for two semesters...)
- Underworld - "Two Months Off" (Album: "100 Days Off", I think I'm the biggest Underworld fan on the planet ;))
- Johnny Cash - "Hurt" (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

related to "going out :)" that said year..:
- Sean Paul - "Get Busy" (that song will forever be connected to my college experience, even though it get's on my nerves now, "Diwali Riddim"-claps are EVERYWHERE... arrgghhh)
- Justin Timberlake - "Rock Your Body"/"Like I Love You" (need I say more... FUNKY!!!)
