Iconic songs from your Country.


Recommended Posts

I'd be interested to hear popular songs from other Countries that are considered iconic. Songs that people from other Countries may not be aware of. Whether in English or not. The sort of song that everyone in your Country knows and loves. Here's five Aussie tracks, although this only scratches the surface.

Yeah, they're probably more appropriate than the ones I chose.

Bryan Adams - Summer of 69

This is probably the song of Canada. Everyone knows it. Even all of you.

Oh the horror, but:

Aqua - Barbie Girl

Would be more interesting, to hear about songs that everyone in your country knows, but only few foreigners know about.

"Turn Back Time" is a great track.

Back in 1979 the "Victorian Football League", now the "Australian Football League", released a promotional song called "Up There Cazaly". At the time this was huge! and is still probably the Aussie Rules anthem. Roy Cazaly was a Footballer from the 1920's who was renowned for taking high marks (catches). There's a very famous photo down here of him taking a spectacular one handed grab. This is borderline Australian National Anthem material.

Divinyls - Boys in Town

The "Divinyls" are definitely an iconic Aussie band and this track is as good as it gets.

From 1981, timeless Hard Rock.

If you're not familiar with their early stuff, then do yourself a favour and check it out.

This is an interesting one. It's iconic apparently, but only in Sydney.

In Melbourne we've always been led to believe that for whatever reason Sydneysiders love this track.

Can you confirm this Geoff?

The "Models" are an iconic 80s Aussie band. When they first started in the early 80s they were full on "New Wave", but as the decade progressed, they became more of a Pop/Rock band. It's interesting that these clips are very, very different in style, but all three encompass the 80s. "Out of Mind, Out of Sight" is still played very regularly on commercial radio down here.

In 1989 their lead singer "James Freud" released a solo album, this time going for a more Hard Rock vibe.

I've always loved the single "Hurricane".

    • I hate threads like this. My expectations for this are so high they will certainly drop when I hear it. Then afetr more listens it will surge I;m sure, but there is no way it can come close to what i am expecting lol
    • Album out now... this ROCKS!!!                         https://gbdeclaration.org/
    • AWESOME!!! Song...   https://gbdeclaration.org/
    • going to play today at some point. expecting a cheesefest but in a good way 
    • I've never seen that before on Spotify - says full album available soon. it's not clear if they've held in back or there's been an error uploading it 
    • From what I understand, Pete and Steve are extremely pissed at Mark "Gus" Scott. https://www.madrock1025.com/trixter-members-go-public-with-feud/ In an argument that’s gone uncomfortably public, Trixter drummer Mark “Gus” Scott has fired back at his disgruntled bandmates, claiming he only wants what’s best for the group. The feud began when Steve Brown and P.J. Farley told interviewers Scott was on “the sh*t list beyond belief,” comparing him to disobedient dog. Now, in a new interview, Scott says the band’s problems go well beyond just one dissenting member. “I don’t know if the ‘bad dog’ is the best analogy and the best manner in which to visualize what’s happened with Trixter,” he says. “I think there’s been different ideologies within the band for a very, very long time. We’ve been together over 30 years. So I think there’s always been — I don’t wanna say a ‘rift,’ but more recently, if there was a rift, it was certainly becoming more and more exponentially grown.” While not naming names, Scott says his issues are with the band’s “leadership,” adding he refuses to be “led by ignorance.” Ouch. How long will it be before Trixter either calls it quits or parts ways with Scott? Have the members of Trixter been together too long?
    • What's the story there? I recall a couple videos between the two "new" albums that portrayed them all as good buddies. 
    • A magnificent hidden gem from Ted Poley.    
    • Ok, so they did shoot a video for "Breakdown." I fucking love this song!!
