Bloodhound Gang - Bad Touch

Bloodhound Gang is a Collegeville, Pennsylvania-based American comedy alternative/punk band, although it began as a rap group and gradually changed their genre throughout the years. Their songs typically have humorous and off-beat, satirical lyrics that often deal with sexual subjects and contain many puns and innuendos.
They are best known for their hit singles "Fire Water Burn", "The Bad Touch," and "Foxtrot Uniform Charlie Kilo". Formed in 1991,[1] Bloodhound Gang has sold more than 6 million albums.[1][2]

America - horse with no name

"A Horse With No Name" was recorded in the key of E minor with acoustic guitars, bass guitar, and bongo drums. The only other chord is a Dadd6add9, fretted on the low E and G strings, second fret. A 12 string plays an added F# (second fret, high E string) on the back beat of the Em. A noted feature of the song is the driving bass line with a hammer-hook in each chorus. A "waterfall" type solo completes the arrangement. Produced by Ian Samwell on the day of final recording at Morgan Studios, at first the group thought it too corny and took some convincing to actually play it. Gerry Beckley has explained in Acoustic Guitar magazine (March 2007) that the correct tuning for the guitar is D E D G B D, low to high. The chord pattern that repeats throughout the entire song is: 202002 (Em),then 020202 and 000202. The tuning is unique to this song; they did not use it on any other America song.

Fools Garden - Lemon tree

Fools Garden is a German musical group, formed in 1991 under the name Fool's Garden (with apostrophe), comprising singer Peter Freudenthaler, guitarist Volker Hinkel, bassist Thomas Mangold, keyboardist Roland Röhl and drummer Ralf Wochele. They debuted in 1991 with the eponymous album Fool's Garden, the next (1993) was album Once in a Blue Moon. Two years later Fool's Garden issued their third album Dish of the Day, scoring a massive European and Asian chart hit with "Lemon Tree". The re-issued track peaked at #26 in the UK Singles Chart in August 1996.[1]
Go And Ask Peggy For The Principal Thing followed in 1997, along with three albums in 2000, 2003 and 2005. In 2003, three members left the band, and were replaced by Dirk Blümlein (bassist), Claus Müller (drummer) and Gabriel Holz (second guitarist, who then left the band in 2007), and the name of the band changed to Fools Garden (no apostrophe).
The band has taken the habit of covering rock and roll songs during live performances (The Beatles' "Ticket to Ride" or The Who's "My Generation"). Fools Garden's interest in British music is such that cover versions of The Beatles's songs "Cry Baby Cry" and "Martha My Dear" appeared on their studio albums.
The band released a greatest hits compilation album in October 2009. The album, High Times, contained fifteen songs including a previously unreleased track.
