Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen Things about DIANE


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 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.

I don't think I've heard of ANY of those! I'll have to check them out via my Rhapsody account. Always interesting to hear new (to me) stuff. ;)

I've posted my Thursday Thirteen, too. Enjoy!

Thanks for visiting my T13! I haven't heard of most of these songs but I'll definitely check them out :)

I do love "Damn, Wish I Was Your Lover" ~ that's a favorite of mine. I love the line, "I had a dream I was your hero."

Note to self: import into iTunes tonight.

Thanks again :) Have a great day!

could be tricking finding some of these as MP3's. The Moving Pictures songs are both off Days of Innocence or The Ultimate Collection, but neither were singles.

Bluehouse are on myspace at with four sample songs.

Sophie B Hawkins is also on myspace at

I love the music section of myspace - so cool to listen to new music.
