1…. Slow Train to Mexico Chris Wilson
Let your friends know you want to go down in Mexico.'
Woah, what a sexy song. I could keep hitting repeat on this one ALL NIGHT
2. Wings Moving Pictures
'I've heard that angels all had wings...you must have checked yours at the door.
What time does heaven shut its gate? Do you have to be home by twelve?'
Rock and forbidden love, great mixture - just what a teenager dreams about.
3. Sex Kick Transvision Vamp
Wendy James performing this live on stage at the Hordern Pavillion - talk about pumped up. Unfortunately my CD of 12" mixes including this was stolen.
4. Like Wow Wipeout Hoodoo Gurus
"I love the way you talk, you walk, your smile, your style..."
This one reminds of blond spunk I had a brief fling with when I was a teenager. The song still makes me smile.
5. Damn I Wish I was your Lover Sophie B Hawkins.
Another song, another crush. Although it's probably a good thing that I didn't send him a copy of the single because it wasn't reciprocated.
6. Stay on Track Deborah Conway
One of the best female vocalists in Australia. Privileged to see her live at Byron Bay last year, sad to miss her gig in May in Adelaide.
7. Bow River Cold Chisel
'Listen now to the wind babe, listen now to the rain'
With the beautiful vocals of Ian Moss.
8. Last Name the Bluehouse
Beautiful vocals from a lovely duo. First saw these gals years ago on a New Year's Eve at the Cat and Fiddle Hotel in Balmain
9. The Angel and the Madman Moving Pictures
'Did you see the Angel and the Madman? Did you see them as they went by?
...I heard someone saying they were high...just a little bit...not so you'd notice...but enough....enough!'
10. Here we are Tania Bowra
Beautiful love song
11. You Have Placed a Chill in My Heart Eurythmics
'Don't cut me down when I'm talking to you...
Because I'm much too tall to feel that small...'
So hard to pick a Eurythmics song because I love so many of them.
12. Dirty Names Rebecca's Empire
13. You Will Surely Love Again Chris Wilson
And I round off the list with another Chris Wilson song, one of the first I heard him sing, and it gave me hope that I would surely love again.
