Your Top 10 Chameleons Songs

Postby Frau_Blucher » Fri Sep 14, 2007 1:36 am

Tons of Chameleons in my recent playlists for whatever reason, thus...

1. On the Beach
2. Paper Tigers
3. Tears (alt version from Strange Times bonus - amazing)
4. In Shreds (is there a more hard driving song?)
5. Up the Down Escalator
6. Perfume Garden
7. Nathan's Phase (acoustic from Strip)
8. View From a Hill
9. Swamp Thing
10. Second Skin

As usual, the list will probably change tomorrow. Heinous omissions too of course, like Return of the Roughnecks, Caution, Soul In Isolation, Childhood, Anyone Alive, Pleasure and Pain, Here Today...

21 less responses than the top 10 Khandaian bands list. Thank god there wasn't a Filipino bands thread to really rub it in. Oh the humanity. [V]
