Thanks to Dan, Popeye, Lisa, and John B for your votes and contributions.

Dan, thanks very much for posting Buc Runga's cover of "Lonely Sea".  I had high hopes for this rendition, but I think she could have done better.  Still, it is beautiful.

Popeye, "Angie Baby" is one Helen Reddy song I like.

Darren.  I bet whoever changed Keith Urban's name on wiki was not a part of the Keith Urban Superfan Club.

Prof, thanks for posting some good indie and alternative music.  Lots of it was new to me.  Princess Chelsea is a very cool choice.  The Nick Cave song was unexpected - in a bad way.

Split Enz, with and the very messed up Phil Judd (AC/DC) on the drums.

"I Got You"



"One Step Ahead"  



Neil later morphed into Crowded House.  He is a huge Brian Wilson fan, and I spotted him only a few seats away from me at the Pet Sounds concert last year.

"Weather with You"



"Better be Home Soon"

Bonnie,

My Aussie-Kiwi votes

Gold –  Jet, good stuff.  I’ve heard this before – dunno where.

Silver - Zed, it has a solo.

Bronze – The Swingers

Tin – definitely The Angels – end the song already!

They're really rockin' in Christchurch,
In Invercargill all day,
Deep in the heart of Auckland
And 'round the Islands Bay...

The Chills, "Pink Frost" (NZ)


The Datsuns, "Highschool Hoodlums" (NZ)


Tom Lark, "Go Get a Job" and "Baby Give Up" (NZ)

Thanks to Al and t for your votes.

Al, you don't know any more Down Under songs?  I was wondering what you might have contributed.

t, we know love is strange, but how many Strangelove's was that?

Popeye.  I see you've fallen back into the old "Waltzing Matilda" track.  Don't let all that pomp and ceremony fool you, it's about a swagman having a cup of tea.  That's it. [wink]

Prof, I've seen the Datsuns play live often.  This is because for a while there they were a local pub band.  They almost touched in on fame, but it slid by.  Coolest thing ever to see the Pet Sounds album on the Tom Lark "Baby Give Up" clip.  (It's at around the two-minute mark if you don't like the song.)

One day left to vote.  Right now it's an interesting mix with the Angels and Jet dividing us into two camps.

"Nature" Fourmylua.  NZ



The Sunnyboys "Happy Man."  AU  (this is cool)

bonnie -- Thanks for pointing out the Pet Sounds appearance. I listened to the song but didn't watch the video.

Ivor Fisher with the Satellites, "Call on Cupid" (I think) and "You Haunt Me" (NZ)

t, how good is 'And the Band Played On (Down Among the Dead Men)' by Flash and the Pan!

James Cameron should've definitely used it in Titanic instead of that Celine Dion 'My Heart Will Go On' rubbish.

No week showcasing Australasian music would be complete without a reference to our own King, the great Johnny O'Keefe. 

John was our first rock 'n' roll star.

He pioneered and championed the rock music industry in this country. 
 
This was one of John's many hits, recorded in 1958. An Australian composition. 

And covered by Ivan (actually Jerry Allison, whose Crickets had toured Australia in the same year) and later Iggy Pop, Jet, Jet Harris, Joan Jett, Jerry Lee Lewis, Suzi Quatro, Status Quo and Brian Setzer.

 (Johnny O'Keefe - Real Wild Child AKA Wild One)

Here's an Aussie song that Darren J. Ray introduced me to a couple of years ago.

Aunty Jack reminds me of a babysitter I had when I was a small child. The trauma still lingers.

Oh, Popeye!

There should be more than one 'like' button for that post. 

To paraphrase myself, no week showcasing Australasian music would be complete without THAT classic. 

And thank you for posting the whole song. It's an absolute fave. 

bonnie, this would've gotten my Gold. 

Popeye, just know that reliving your childhood trauma has rekindled fond memories of nine-year-old Darren telling his mother he wanted to marry Flange Desire.  

Here she is, along with Aunty Jack, Thin Arthur and Kid Eager.

Darren,

I'm glad I could rekindle some good memories for you.

Actually Aunty Jack reminds me of a composite of babysitters I had when I was young.

Mom always told me she couldn't keep a babysitter for long after watching me. I think I traumatized them a bit more than they did me. I never went down without a fight.

P.S. I think Phil Judd is Wynonna's uncle.

You must've had some very attractive babysitters, Popeye. 


Not sure what's happening there. Phil Rudd was AC/DC's drummer. 

Phil Judd was in the Swingers and originally Split Enz (as a guitarist). 

And not on 'I Got You'!

And he looked worse than Aunty Jack.

Here he is trying to hide the scar, left after the operation.  

Image result for Phil Judd


On the other hand, Ashley Judd rocks! [love]

Whoops, I got my Rudd's and Judd's and Harry Potter's all mixed up.  [smile]

Popeye; the real wild child.
