"Mercy" by Duffy, "Cooler than Me" by Mike Posner, "Respect" by Aretha Franklin, "Cannonball" by Damien Rice, "Trouble" by Ray LaMontagne, "Run Run Run" by Celeste Buckingham, "Shark in the Water" by VV Brown, "Cough Syrup" by Young the Giant, "Fix You" by Coldplay, "Shake Me Down" by Cage the Elephant, "Breathe Me" by Sia, and etc.
