Thank you thank you everyone! I reckon I have enough to fill a couple of CD's now. Any more suggestions most welcome though!
I was going to put in some Olivia Newton-John, Kasey Chambers, Bernard Fanning, Pete Murray and Missy Higgins as well.
Wow we've got some awesome music talent in this country.

Yeah, but you bought it because Post wasn't in stock and were (for some reason) happy with the overblown cover versions of its songs on the double album. It did add Randwick Bells and The Execution, however, so is not a total loss.... original.gif

There are soooo many I would want to add.  I think I'd make up a set of CDs rather than one.


Going through my collection, so there may be a LOT.  This is fun. original.gif


1 - Older music, not really 'Rock' though. The original What about Me(don't be playing any of that other crap..); Some LRB - Help is on it's way or Reminiscing?Hey Little Girl (Joel says Great Southern Land. I'm not putting out now) - Icehouse; Never tear us apart - INXS, Men at Work - Land Down Under; Little Ray of Sunshine - Axion (I'm biased. It was 'my song'). April Sun in Cuba - Dragon? Anything by Split Enz (Message to my Girl) or Crowded House (I"m claiming them. Back off Kiwis. biggrin.gif) Better be home soon, Fall at your Feet, Don't Dream it's over; The Voice John Farhnam (I know. It's cheesy, but it'd be hard to leave it out); Much as I hate it, it makes me nostalgic - True Blue - John Williamson; Come said the boy -Mondo Rock; I still call Australia Home - Peter Allen or Tenterfield Saddler (makes me cry) Redgum - He was only 19 Daddy Cool - Eagle RockBlackfeather, Boppin the blues Reckless - Australian Crawl; Girls on the Avenue-Richard Clapton 1927 - Compulsary Hero or If I could

2. Older Rock.  I love Cold Chisel. But I was never a fan of Khe San.  I'd be going with Flame Trees and/or When the War is over (my favourite). Thunderstruck; Evie-Stevie Wright; Throw your arms around me(Joel likes Holy Grail best) -Hunters and Collecters; Something by Midnight Oil - Beds are burning or Power and the Passion (who I despise); The Angels -    Screaming Jets - BetterChoirboys- Run to Paradise; Living in the 70s - Skyhooks; Noiseworks - No Lies

3 More recent Rock - Jet (I love put your money where your mouth is and Are you gonna be my girlMy Happiness - Powderfinger; Unguarded - The Church; Silverchair- Tomorrow  Hoodoo Gurus - What's my Scene or Miss Freelove 69 biggrin.gif ; The Cruel Sea - The Honeymoon is Over;Onion Skin - Boom Crash Opera; Eskimo Joe- Black Fingernails, Red Wine or Sarah  Wolfmother - The Joker and the Thief Garbage - Cherry Lips
Grinspoon - Chemical Heart
Some more 'poppy'

Pete Murray - Better Days; Natalie Imbruglia - Torn, I touch Myself -Divinyls (erm. Maybe not for a baby?) Paul Kelly - To Her Door (though I prefer Before Too Long - doesn't make me cry) or Dumb Things.The Whitlams - No Aphrodisiac; Killing Heidi-Mascara; Taxiride - Everywhere you go or Creeping up Slowly; Bachelor Girl - Buses and Trains; Vanessa Amerosi - Shine; George - (I love Katie Noonan) - Breathe in Now Missy Higgins - The Sound of White or Scar Bernard Fanning - Wish you Well ; Angus and Julia Stone - Big Jet Plane?Kate Miller-Heidke- Caught in a crowd or Last Day on Earth

Other people will be better at modern. I'm way behind on that.

Redgum - I Was Only 19
Cold Chisel - Flame Trees (Khe Sanh has just been ruined for me)
Nick Cave - Ship Song
ACDC - Back in Black
Hunters & Collectors - Holy Grail (has almost been ruined for me, but I still love it!)
Kylie Minogue - Confide In Me
Nick & Kylie - Where the Wild Roses Grow
Dan Sultan - Old Fitzroy
The Waifs - Fisherman's Daughter
Gotye - Heart's A Mess
Siverchair - Straight Lines
