My Rage Top 20

Richard Giles from Scouta tagged me in the latest meme going around the blogosphere, well at least the Australian blogosphere. This one was started by The Thinker’s Podium who was inspired by Rage’s Invade Rage competition.

This is the stuff of my childhood dreams; to program a Rage playlist. Rage is having an ‘invade rage‘ competition over at their site, so get on over and enter your preferences.

If you don’t know what Rage is you didn’t grow up in Australia, kind of like MTV but with music :-).

Richard tagged me a week or so ago and I have been slack in getting my list together.

Over the weekend a carved out a few hours to complete my play list. In pulling together the play list I looks for several things, videos that were popular back when I was a teenager, together with songs that I like both new and old. This means there are a few weird ones listed, eg Walk the Dinosaur so please bear with me. At the end of the day I ended up with 21 song, I could of dropped one but decided to leave in Walk the Dinosaur ;-).

As I could not work out which was my top video they are listed in alphabetical order based on song name, one final thing some videos are not safe for work.

Beds are Burning – Midnight Oil

  1. Thanks Rich, Erotica is a great song and symbolizes Madonna at that point in time, in fact she still exhibits many of the same traits today.

    I was also trying to think what would go down well at 6am on a Sunday morning after a heavy night out.
