I was young and wild. Drank a lot and managed to ruin my first two cars. Then I met my first Big Love. Thought I had it all. It didn't work out. I remember cruisin' the Frisian lands like a wild one. Headphones recommended. (Original songfile - 1990)

You want facts : the total amount of used heroin needles in Amsterdam has gone down from 1,000,000 ( yes, one million ) in 1991 to 184,000 in 2008. This is because new users mostly inhale the heroin. ( Headphones recommended ! Good song ! )

( 1989! ) Taken together ( actually a few is enough ) nuclear weapons are willing and able to destroy our planet several times. They will indeed "create" A Wound Of A Depth Yet Unknown. ( Highly psychedelic and 60s alike - headphones recommended! )
In all my Amsterdam Years I've seen many a man ( and woman ) go down ( including almost myself ). The neonlights and behind it anything God forbade us to do simply remain irresistible. Simple song - headphones recommended. Original songfile - 1990.
