In keeping with the Australia Day theme, here is a list of some great Australian songs that I have been listening to lately. Not my all time favourite songs, just songs I love NOW: old and new-ish.

We Won’t Run – Sarah Blasco
Wide Open Road – The Triffids
Cement – Washington
Shivers – The Young Charlatans
Fall at Your Feet – Boy & Bear
Ramona was a Waitress – Paul Dempsey
No Sense – Ben Lee
Right Here – The Go-Betweens
Perfection – Adalita
Ghost Ships – The Saints

A big THANK YOU to Melanie for the kind words on her brilliant blog, and HELLO and WELCOME to any of her readers who have popped in to check out What-She-Said.


  1. Awwww some brilliant choices there. "Wide open road" absolute classic- only recently brought a compilation of theirs. Nailing it down to ten, tricky! Noticed a couple of covers- proves that a great song can be interpreted in many ways.

    1. Astute observations mr/ms annon. I actually prefer some covers to original versions these days, which is kinda weird. A few years ago I would have said the original version is always the best, but you're right - a great song is a great song.

      'Wide Open Road' is such a classic and probably in my top 10 of all time. Thanks for your great comment!

  2. Awesome =D Hope you had a great day and that some people listened to me!!! xoxo
