Whoever said "Goanna - Solid Rock" won. That whole album was excellent.

Close seconds would be anything by Midnight Oil or Something for Kate

I guess I won’t be able to nominate “Pope song” by Tim Minchin.

Gina Riley: Oh, come on, John. That’s a bit old hat, the corrupt IOC delegate.
John Clarke: Old hat? Gina, in the scientific world when they see that something is happening again and again and again, repeatedly, they don’t call it old hat. They call it a pattern.

Go-Betweens achieved every bands dream, performing at the opening a toll bridge in Brisbane that's kinda named after them. Probably more traffic that day than the bridge has seen since.

"A Tale They won't believe" is a cracker - I heard it the day it was written, as it happens. I was visiting Mick T(along with WPA drummer Marcus) and heard him inside his house just punishing an acoustic and shouting for several minutes until he stopped . We knocked again. He came out in stubbies and a sweated through Tshirt just beaming "I've just written a really good song!". Indeed he had.
