Chelsea Hotel (Leonard Cohen)
Robin playing this song during the gigs in Denmark, May 2002.
Robin: "We've started doing a version of 'Chelsea Hotel' by Leonard Cohen, just piano and vocal, and everybody loves it! That makes me feel really good. It's scary when you cover the masters!
Mammas, don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys (Ed and Patsy Bruce)
This country classic (most know is the version by Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings) is probably the first song Robin ever learned to play on guitar. He sometimes played it with The God Machine and it also pops up in Sophia shows now and again. Robin: "But only after I've had "one too many" (!) which means I also tend to forget the words... :-) "
Old man (written by Neil Young)

Robin: "The idea that even moments after you've left someone you want to hear their voice again because you miss them so much (well, that's what I take from the song anyway) I just think is absolutely wonderful."
What Have I Done (Anna Ternheim)
In Robin's words: "This is a lovely song by Swedish songwriter Anna Ternheim. And come to think of it, probably my favourite song of 2009." Released as an mp3.
I Don't Care (written by Ramones)
At the end of the May 10th 2010 Zürich gig at Hafenkneipe Robin was joined by Ickey Undressed for a rendition of the Ramones' track 'I Don't Care' from their 1977 'Rocket To Russia' album.
