Forum - General: Music/Charts related - Grunty's Aussie Song of the Day

I've been posting these elsewhere for a little over a month now so I may as well share them here too.

"Don't Call Me Baby" by Madison Avenue (1999) [ARIA #2 Hit] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FJbv8VcgKE4
Great track. I also liked the follow up. They did themselves no favours with the next two singles. They charted well,so the GP must have liked em.
Heh. I like all four singles, though, none of them cracked the Top 100 portion of my EOY lists.
Madison Avenue, short lived but enjoyable.

Who The Hell Are You
Don’t Call Me Baby
Everything You Need

I didn’t really listen to Cheyne - I’ve Got Your Number or Taste You.

I purchased two of Andy Van’s “Vandalism” Never Say Never & Twisted on CD Single.

Never Say Never being favoured over Twisted.

"Love is a War" by Rogue Traders (2010) [ARIA #90 Hit] More at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YvC2sTOkJjI
I’m familiar with this one but had moved on after Natalie Bassingthwaighte’s exit from Rogue Traders.

Mindi Jackson who was the replacement was amazing when she teamed up with Moustache for the remake of Fleetwood Mac’s Everywhere.

I would really like a Rogue Traders successful comeback and a chance to see them live would be great too.

I only really became familiar with this track due to a video hits 80's special with james and mindi on the show from december 2009 which i have on tape. I don't mind rogue traders though not a fan. 'In Love Again' is the one of theirs i like.
"Shape I'm In" by Jo Jo Zep and The Falcons (1979) [AMR #22 Hit] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UrDvZ8l2iWU

Awesome song!
Only recently have discovered it alongside All I Wanna Do.
2021 was the year I immersed myself in 1980.

"You're Beautiful" by Nathaniel Willemse (2014) [ARIA #14 Hit] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jEVMS7Lhj9E

I'm a big fan of male falsetto - the note he hits around the 1:26 mark is just bliss! ❤
I was very big fan of “You” when it arrived but this follow-up didn’t hit home as much as I wanted it too. Love Louder was a nice return to form.
Very surprised Nathaniel Willemse didn’t have a few more hits during his career.

Still a fan of “You”

"Tiny Dancer" by Marco Demark feat. Casey Barnes (2008) [ARIA #66 Hit] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zsIxom8pyVo
"In the Air" by TV Rock feat. Rudy (2010) [ARIA #37 Hit] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HCS-7BjbY0M
"Cemetery" by Silverchair (1997) [ARIA #5 Hit] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GSIulfUP02M
Silverchair are fantastic. It would be great to see them produce another album.
Cemetery is a great track. 1997 is one of my favourite years of music and it fits nicely in there alongside Abuse Me, Freak Show & The Door.

I wasn't big on Cemetery back in the day but I like it now. Dunno if that's just from maturing tastes (I keep liking new Vance Joy and Dean Lewis songs, lol).

"Give Me Something" by Jarryd James (2015) [ARIA #59 Hit] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f43T6OuM3hI
"Teardrops" by Kate Alexa feat. Baby Bash (2008) [ARIA #26 Hit] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g9EERjRSWKc
"Pull Up to the Bumper" by Deni Hines (2000) [ARIA #36 Hit] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iW91teTpfe8
I remember this remake as it was on a Pepsi Chart Hits CD I had. It’s not too bad and I think it deserves at least a top 20 placing.
Naters, the single version was a remix by the Leigh Brothers, who have done other remixes I like, especially of Don't Say a Word by Emmanuel Carella. <3

"Mouth" by Merril Bainbridge (1995) [ARIA #1 Hit] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=84rWOwyCPUQ
Oh, I never knew that.

Merril Bainbridge, should be played more on radio.

"Shut Down" by Australian Crawl (1982) [AMR #17 Hit] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xs2GOsniwYA
Mouth is probably merril's best though there's not a lot to choose from in that category of the singles released. Was never into aussie crawl but saw james reyne as a support act quite a number of years ago to an international act and he was brilliant live.
I love Australian Crawl. They have taken out my #1 single of the year twice - Downhearted in 1980 and Reckless in 1983. <3

"Closer to Hogs" by Nine Inch Richards (1995) [ARIA #51 Hit] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dD069uS9l3E
"Forgot You" by Bella Ferraro feat. William Singe (2013) [ARIA #75 Hit] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lQgCj9u58Js
"I Love You Always Forever" by Betty Who (2016) [ARIA #6 Hit] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KrJBlk8q8qc
Great remake, I prefer it over the Donna Lewis version. There’s something about having shoes on your hands that puts me off.
Shoes (and feet in general) are gross.
