    Long list today as I went for a good walk on a cracking Easter Sunday ... 1. Now We're Getting Somewhere - Crowded House 2. Take a Picture - Filter 3. Another Brick in the Wall - Pink Floyd 4. Trading Air - Athlete 5. Rapid Hope Loss - Dashboard Confessional 6. Pumping On Your Stereo - Supergrass 7. Nothing But Flowers - Talking Heads (the perfect response to "Concrete and Clay") 8. Tip of my Tongue - Johnny Diesel. Australian 80s one-hit wonder, but his one hit is pretty good 9. Hometown Farewell Kiss - The Triffids 10. If You Leave - OMD 11. In the Arms of Sleep - Smashing Pumpkins 12. Treaty - Yothu Yindi. A stirring indigenous anthem that pointedly talks about the treaty the Hawke government promised but never delivered. 13. This Is You - Presence. This album is one of my favourite rarities. Glowing electronica, teamed with soulful vocals. Gorgeous, and only $1.99! 14. Wash in the Rain - The Bees 15. Hazey Jane I - Nick Drake 16. Come on Feel the Illinoise - Sufjan Stevens. Groan-worthy title, real nice song. 17. Disco 2000 - Pulp 18. Be My Pillow - Machine Translations 19. Sweet Song - Blur 20. Damaged - Primal Scream 21. One Flight Down - Norah Jones 22. Parallel Universe - RHCP 23. Way Down Yonder in the Minor Key - Billy Bragg and Wilco. I frikking love this song. Billy, Wilco and Woody - what a breathtaking idea. 24. Every Morning - Mr Jigga. If you like funk, try these guys. They could sure use some money. 25. Accept Yourself - The Smiths. Meh. The Queen Is Dead, this ain't 26. State of the Heart - Mondo Rock. A superb 80s ballad from one of Australia's greatest songwriters, Ross Wilson. Any of you know Eagle Rock? Same guy. 27. She Burns up the Night - Starky, Big change of pace for these guys - real nice ballad. 28. Gimme Gimme Shock Treatment - Ramones 29. Wind - Akeboshi. My son played this to me - it's from an anime soundtrack. Beautiful song. 30. Busted Stuff - Dave Matthews Band 31. All the Same - Sick Puppies. The theme song of the Free Hugs campaign (check if you're curious) 32. Two Princes - Spin Doctors 33. Expo '86 - Death Cab for Cutie 34. Not Just Anybody - Rae and Christian
