Australia Day Music 2015

I do like a good playlist. The problem is, I’ve only been allocated two (and a bit) hours to create THE ULTIMATE AUSTRALIA DAY PLAYLIST.

It’s bloody stressful I can tell ya.

I’ve already played the classic classics (Jo Jo Zep, Spectrum, Daddy Cool, Jimmy & The Boys, Russell Morris, The Easybeats, Bee Gees, The Little Heroes, Johnny O’Keefe, Player 1, Flash And The Pan, The Radiators … damn, there’s a whole list there!), but I’m still about 44 minutes over. That’s 10 or 11 songs I’ve got to lose from my list of only 43 tracks.

ARRRRRGGGGGHHHHH!

Suggestions? What should stay? What should be here that I forgot?

Bloody oath it’s a bonza of a jam.
