  1. Song/Video of the day

    Good to see this thread is still being used. This song has been #1 on the Australian charts for 8 weeks and counting. If you think all #1 singles these days have no artistic merit and sound pretty much the same, have a listen to this and you might be pleasantly surprised. Somebody That I Used To Know - Gotye featuring Kimbra (2011)
  2. 1. Great Nothing, The - Spock's Beard (2000) 2. Zebra - John Butler Trio (2003) 3. Peaches En Regalia - Frank Zappa (1969) 4. Let Me Be - Xavier Rudd (2004) 5. Criminal - Fiona Apple (1997) 6. What It's Like - Everlast (1998) 7. When I Was Young - Eric Burdon & the Animals (1967) 8. Show Must Go On, The - Queen (1991) 9. Evil Hearted You - The Yardbirds (1965) 10. Uncle Salty - Aerosmith (1975)
  3. Lea successfully convinced me to make a comeback for this PTT. First, I will treat you all to an epic released just ten years ago that not only deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as Shine On You Crazy Diamond, Karn Evil 9, 2112 and Close To The Edge - it actually beats them all. In my opinion, at least. The Great Nothing - Spock's Beard (2000) I guess I have to make another nomination... this'll do. Peaches En Regalia - Frank Zappa (1969)
  4. 1. Who's Next - The Who (1971) 2. Aqualung - Jethro Tull (1971) 3. Dark Side of the Moon, The - Pink Floyd (1973) 4. Led Zeppelin IV - Led Zeppelin (1971) 5. Close to the Edge - Yes (1972) 6. Night at the Opera, A - Queen (1975) 7. Sticky Fingers - The Rolling Stones (1971) 8. Morrison Hotel - The Doors (1970) 9. Rumours - Fleetwood Mac (1977) 10. Emerson, Lake & Palmer - Emerson, Lake & Palmer (1970) Wow.
  5. 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa

    The Socceroos were hopeless. How embarrassing.

  8. c s 1987's Personal Top Ten

    ^ I hadn't heard that news about Greg Lake, but unfortunately these things seem to be happening pretty often these days.
  9. c s 1987's Personal Top Ten

    Throw Your Arms Around me has been #2 in the Triple J Hottest 100 Of All Time three times now. The first two times Love Will Tear Us Apart was #1, the other time Smells Like Teen Spirit was #1. That list usually has pretty strange results.
  10. c s 1987's Personal Top Ten

    I love it! I really didn't know how the voting would turn out for this PTT, but I'm really happy with the top ten. Thanks to everyone, especially you Ron. Clearly no one here agrees with the Australian public that "Throw Your Arms Around Me" is the second greatest song of all time.
  11. 1. In the Court of the Crimson King - King Crimson (1969) 2. Tommy - The Who (1969) 3. Led Zeppelin II - Led Zeppelin (1969) 4. Are You Experienced - The Jimi Hendrix Experience (1967) 5. Shine on Brightly - Procol Harum (1968) 6. Disraeli Gears - Cream (1967) 7. Doors, The - The Doors (1967) 8. Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band - The Beatles (1967) 9. Rubber Soul - The Beatles (1965) 10. Surrealistic Pillow - Jefferson Airplane (1967) You know it's a great list when I don't vote for Pink Floyd or The Stones.
  12. I have read many anti climate change articles, but I am still yet to see one that is actually written by someone with any experience at all in the field of climate science, or one that actually provides reliable sources for the so-called "facts" provided within. This one is even less believable than most I read - especially because of how it grasps for acceptance with that nonsensical metaphor at the end (or at least it only makes sense if you completely ignore years of research by people who actually understand the subject, unlike this blogger).

    ^ You'd think so, but no.
  14. c s 1987's Personal Top Ten

    ^ No, Neil Finn was their only original Kiwi member, and they formed in Australia.
  15. c s 1987's Personal Top Ten

    ^ I did give Vanda and Young some representation though, both as performers (Easybeats) and producers (AC/DC). And yes, I did notice your suggestions too Kenne. Thanks, but my decision to include five songs each from my favourites limited my choice.
