Songs like The Light Will Stay On, Life Full of Holes, Nightdrive, Follow me an Angel, Will you Miss me When I am gone caprivated the greek audience and prove the love with which they welcome the band each time the band visits Greece. 
Their special connection with Greece is also evident in their songs where 2000 the single Train leaves at eight is actually a different version of Mickey's Theodoraki's song, while at the same time they include reeditions of their favourite song writers such as: Goran Bregovic, Jacques Brell, Deus, Fabrizio De Andre and many more.
