Happy Australia Day world! I am a little late as Australia Day is almost over, but my excuse is that I have been busy. Busy as in escorting enormous huntsmen spiders out the front door, eating fantastic sugary watermelon, climbing the biggest hill in Sydney (Bellevue Hill), doodling siamese pussy cats (see blog post later this week or possibly tomorrow depending on how I feel), watching cracking British retro drama and generally enjoying myself.
However, in celebration of Oz Day I have compiled a list of 10 of my favourite Australian Rock and pop songs for your listening pleasure:
1. Tantalized - The Church (Hey Day)
2. Amnesia - The Vines (Winning Days)
3. It's a Long Way to the Top if You Wanna Rock'n Roll - AC/DC (High Voltage)
4. Stay Young - Inxs (Underneath the Colours)
5. Streets of Your Town - The Go Betweens (16 Lovers Lane)
6. According to my Heart - The Reels (Five Great Gift Ideas From The Reels)
7. I want you Back - The Hoodoo Gurus (Stoneage Romeos)
8. I Hope I Never - Split Enz (True Colours)
9. Can't Say No - Beasts of Burden (Low Road)
10. Red Right Hand - Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds (Let Love In)
P.S. If you can't manage to watch or listen to all of these beauties at least watch the clip for Acca Dacca's It's a Long way to the Top - it's a pearler!!!
