And of course a Beatles song:

I Don't Want To Spoil The Party

Midnight Oil before they discovered acoustic guitars and drum machines, four-on-the-floor drums and straight eights bass lines, eg Back On The Borderline and the rest of the Head Injuries album.

Would you really say that Tomorrow Never Knows was underrated? Isn't it usually considered to be one of John's greatest masterpieces?

I felt I had to mention it simply because it did not appear on the 1962-1966 compilation, even though IMO it is better than every song on that compilation.

Graham Parker was a big hit in Australia way back when:

Hey Lord, Don't Ask Me Questions

Protection

New York Shuffle

Like a cross between Elvis Costello and Van Morrison. Also strangely reminiscent of the Australian mid-70s act Jo Jo Zep and The Falcons.

Good stuff!!
