Where did our love go Third finger left hand Get Ready
Stop her on sight (SOS ) Up the Ladder
Signed Sealed delivered Come see about me Can’t hurry love
Build me up
I’m coming out
Tear of a clown
Blame it on boogie Nowhere to run
Dancing in the street Ain’t no mountain high Stop in the name of love Nathan jones
Please mr Postman Heatwave
Keep me hanging on Stoned love
Its the Same old
Ain’t too proud
I Feel Good
Needle in a Haystack
Heard it through the Grapevine
Land of 1000 dances
This Old heart of mine
Higher & Higher
Heaven must have sent you
