Since none of these admittedly disparate artists were punk, they were New Wave. Full stop.

I’m not a a huge “genre” guy myself so I’m ok with Tim’s broad parameters and thank him for his efforts. While I’m not sure I would have included Wham or a Christmas song - it’s all fairly harmless especially if we don’t think of this as the definitive list and merely as Tim’s list.

I guess the easier way would have been to call it the “New Wave/Post Punk/Alternative” list from that certain time period which could have ended those debates. To me they kind of overlap anyway - and I don’t necessarily sit there and ponder what box The Smiths fit in. I just know I like them.

Did Flock of Seagulls make the list?

Yes, but as usual for the wrong song.

That would have been my choice. But he ran from it. So far away.

That would have been my choice. Wishing (If I Had A Photograph) would have been second.

21. “Down Under” Men at Work (1981, from Business at Usual

Nearly 40 years after this song was written, and I’ve still never had a Vegemite sandwich. Not even sure what one is. But I’ve been told by those who do that I’m not missing anything. 

A few years ago Colin Hay recorded an acoustic version of this song with a latin sound- it’s really beautiful:

Speaking of Vegemite, it is trending on Twitter after Tom Hanks did a tweet showing Vegemite being spread on toast and causing fits among Australians because apparently he used WAY TOO MUCH Vegemite on the bread.

My favorite tweets:

Cripes, we've given him coronavirus *and* Vegemite.

 

Quote

We really need to start putting Vegemite spreading instructions on the jar for foreigners.

 

Quote

Tom Hanks is going to die from Vegemite isn’t he.

 

Quote

killing coronavirus with nuclear levels of vegemite might be our only hope

I like to give a wide berth to music fans (Aerosmith, Rush, Van Halen, and Phil Collins fans nothwithstanding), but the atrocities here are atrocious.

No:

  • White Wedding Sunday
  • Eyes Without a Face
  • Rebel Yell
  • Take Me On
  • 99 Luftballoons
  • Safety Dance

Lot's of mean things left unsaid.
