Kādā Brīnišķā dienā
Ar tevi kopā
Ejam tālāk
Ej uz visām debess pusēm
Es karājos tavā bizē
Filma beigusies
Gada labākās meitenes
Krāsainā dziesma
Lai notiek viss
Pēdējais vilciens
Var jau būt
Vecais, mums ir laimējies
Zelta sirds
Ziemassvētku dziesma
Dzimtā valoda
Grēks paliek
Ostmalas kvartālā
Tev būs jāmaksā
Trīs sievietes
