Whop - pants are already down.

I also still enjoy many of the songs that others have posted above :grinning:
And others from me include:

Missing You - John Waite
Broken Wings - Mr Mister
I Wanna Dance With Somebody - Whitney Houston
Careless Whisper - George Michael
That’s When I Think Of You / If I Could - 1927

And I never really tire of hearing most of the classics from legendary Aussie/NZ bands like Crowded House, Dragon, Cold Chisel, Midnight Oils, INXS or The Angels.

Totally with you on Broken Wings and I Wanna Dance With Somebody (especially - can’t get enough of that song after ALL These years played constantly on the radio).

Add to that Chain Reaction / Dianna Ross. Sad I know. But there’s something about those songs that stand the test of time (and repetition) for me.

Sorry NRN - can’t agree with Eagle Rock :slight_smile:
That’s an INSTANT station changer for me - in fact 4KQ played it just before lunch and I had switched stations within about 3 seconds :slight_smile:

Ok I will TRY to listen to Eagle Rock in full the next time it’s played (daily on 4KQ) :slight_smile:

Wow, there’s more than a few there that would appear on a similar list of mine. I’d probably substitute Don’t Dream it’s Over in for It’s Only Natural, and while we’re talking Finns maybe add I Got You by Split Enz.

And even though I love Floyd too, even I do get a bit tired of hearing those kids chanting double negatives (evidently they do in fact need that education!) Though I welcome it more when it’s preceded by The Happiest Days of Our Lives, which it is much more now it seems)

Thin Lizzy, "The Boys Are Back in Town"
Pink Floyd,"Another Brick in the Wall"
Yes I still like 'Eagle Rock"heard it on Triple M the other day
ACDC “High Voltage”

I’ve always much preferred the German version. The English version sounds a bit off to me.

WTF stations are you listening to that plays 99 Luft Balloons? I haven’t heard that in years, let alone “flogged by commercial radio”! :smiley:
