  1. 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. The Socceroos were hopeless. How embarrassing.
  6. [bigger]CLOSE TO THE EDGE - YES (1972)[/bigger] 1. "Close to the Edge" * "The Solid Time of Change" * "Total Mass Retain" * "I Get Up I Get Down" * "Seasons of Man" Anderson/Howe/Squire 18:43 2. "And You and I" * "Cord of Life" * "Eclipse" * "The Preacher the Teacher" * "Apocalypse" Anderson/Bruford/Howe/Squire 10:08 3. "Siberian Khatru" Anderson/Howe/Wakeman 8:55

  8. ^ I hadn't heard that news about Greg Lake, but unfortunately these things seem to be happening pretty often these days.
  9. 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. 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).
  13. ^ No, Neil Finn was their only original Kiwi member, and they formed in Australia.
  14. ^ 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.
  15. ^ Good suggestions BA - I didn't actually realise Fisher Z and Real Life were Australian. I will always consider Split Enz to be a New Zealand band only (it's why they spell Enz with 'NZ'). I couldn't think of any Men At Work songs I would like to nominate at the time I compiled this list, but I have thought of a few since. Good turnout so far guys - keep the votes coming!
  16. Just one particular rock opera released in 1969 by one particular British rock band that one particular 23 year old Songfactor (who I believe is currently overseas) is a very big fan of.
  17. I'm an Australian who thinks Steve Howe is the greatest guitarist ever, yet I didn't know he recorded a song called Australia. It's a good song too. Unfortunately, I don't know where you would be likely to find an mp3 of it.
  18. Strange - it works for me, so I guess some or all EMI videos don't work in the US. I've added an alternative version of the video to the end of the playlist. Today (the day this thread was opened) is ANZAC Day, which is Australia's main war remembrance day, and also happens to be my fourth Songfacts anniversary. Nice coincidence. I hope you all enjoy discovering Australian music.
  19. Right click on any song in your iTunes library that you ripped from a CD and click on "Show in Windows Explorer". This shows where all of the .m4a files are stored. They are in seperate folders for seperate artists though, so it will be a long process if you want to convert songs from lots of different artists. This should be all you need to know if you already know how to convert the files.
  20. 1. Thick As A Brick - Jethro Tull (1972) 2. 21st Century Schizoid Man - King Crimson (1969) 3. Soul Sacrifice - Santana (1970) 4. I'm Going Home - Ten Years After (1970) 5. Thunderstruck - AC/DC (1990) 6. Us and Them - Pink Floyd (1973) 7. Achilles Last Stand - Led Zeppelin (1976) 8. Buddy Holly - Weezer (1994) 9. Bargain - The Who (1971) 10. Hot For Teacher - Van Halen (1984) Excellent list, as usual.
  21. Let me clarify something: Jefferson Airplane = Good Jefferson Starship = Good Starship = Crap
  22. Meh. The only thing I really like about this list is that Yes, King Crimson and Jethro Tull are all a fair bit higher than they are on most lists. Also, I would like to assure all the naysayers that Genesis do deserve to be in the top 20. How could anyone rate Van Halen that much higher than The Who?
  23. 1. 21st Century Schizoid Man - King Crimson (1969) 2. Thunderstruck - AC/DC (1990) 3. Dreams - The Cranberries (1993) 4. Hot For Teacher - Van Halen (1984) 5. Zephyr Song, The - Red Hot Chili Peppers (2002) 6. Run Like Hell - Pink Floyd (1979) 7. Last Nite - The Strokes (2001) 8. Run To You - Bryan Adams (1984) 9. You Give Love A Bad Name - Bon Jovi (1986) 10. Glycerine - Bush (1994)
