^ 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! :cool:

Ah, I thought you was inclusive of the kiwis since you listed Crowded House (aren't they from NZ?) :cool:

Seeing as it was ANZAC day just this week, I couldn't help but vote! (Plus I actually had time this week yay!) This is probably the ptt where I've known the most songs (though definitely not all) which is soooooo weird since a lot of other people seem to know very few. I didn't realise how much music from across the ditch gets playtime here until I listened to this list!

I absolutely loved this PTT, Chris. I had never heard of Cold Chisel before you introduced me to them a year or two (or possibly three) years ago. Now whenever I see mention of them, I always think of you. (Awwww....:grin:).

Anywho, I had a blast listening to all your songs. I can't believe I've never heard of Baby Animals. That chick rocks me sideways. :rockon:

From Perth to Ayer's (it's) Rock and we can all thank Chris for turning us on our heads to some tunes with that down under flavor. Music that vibrated our collective didjeridoo

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. :doh: :laughing:

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.

This was great fun cs, listening to so many songs new to me. I'm also terribly impressed by Orianthe. So much that I researched her a bit (she was set to be MJ's lead guitarist on his This Is It concert/album) .... I totally agree with the video comments comparing her sound (on that song anyway) to a combo of Vai & Santana. This girl has real talent and I'll search out more of her music. :bow:

It was great fun listening to your list Chris. You Aussie's have some great bands thank you for sharing :thumbsup:

I finally got that "Boys Light Up" song out of my head :laughing:

On a side note and you being a fellow ELP fan, did you know Greg Lake had to cancel a concert in Texas because he became ill? I don't know what happened but he said he will be continue the tour when he's feeling better.

I know some of our rock icons are getting older just like us. It's tragic and sad when health issues arise :(
