Minor spoilers warning

We learn during the game that Albert Fink, Jeremiah's brother, was able to listen to music through Tears and claim it as his own. During the game you can hear "oldified" version of songs that came out after the game's timeline.

I've heard Cyndi Lauper's "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" through a tear (but not its old version) and during the end credits I've heard a version of "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" by Tears For Fears (Ha!).

What is the full list of all the futuristic (as of 1912) songs that appear during the game and when do they appear?

All of the songs are also listed in the credits. –  hammar Apr 21 '13 at 10:04

Tainted Love is played on the phonograph in The Graveyard Shift (the bar in Shantytown) (video). –  hammar Apr 21 '13 at 10:12
    
@hammar Thanks for the info. I added that into the answer. –  galacticninja Apr 21 '13 at 10:15
    
It's also worth noting that Fortunate Son and Girls Just Wanna Have Fun can both be heard in their original version while playing: the first one in Finkton, in one of the warehouses that surround the Plaza of Zeal; the other one in Albert Fink's house in Emporia, in front of the Memorial Garden –  Kappei Apr 22 '13 at 0:02
    
I'm sort of disappointed there wasn't an oldified version of a proper heavy metal song. Dio's Holy Diver springs to mind as a good choice :D –  Alex Apr 22 '13 at 10:19
