80's Australian music lyrics - Part 2

Postby CK » Wed Jun 29, 2011 9:15 pm

The tribe has spoken (okay - if Fisho is a tribe ;) ).

You know the drill - title and artist:

1. I don’t want you round here no more, don’t come knockin’, you won’t get past my door
Hey Little Boy - Divinyls

2. Walking in slow motion, like he’d just been hit
To Her Door - Paul Kelly

3. Just a touch of you, just a taste. Like kissing God is what we do
Hammerhead - James Reyne

4. ..and if your body touches me, I just don’t know what I might do
Out Of Mind, Out Of Sight - The Models

5. Squinting at broad daylight, drumming up a conversation, Parsons brass is pealing, appealing, drumming up a congregation Man Overboard - Do Re Mi

6. The block is awkward, it faces west
Sounds Of Then - Gangajang

7. At least there’s pretty lights, and though there’s little variation, it nullifies the night
Overkill - Men At Work

8. When I’m halfway to heaven, with three parts of hell
That's When I Think Of You - 1927

9. I search for ways, to make a play. When it comes down to it, I run away
Lady What's Your Name - Swanee

10. We were sold out for silver, and a string of black pearls, on the loneliest island, at the edge of the world
Hold On To Me - The Black Sorrows

11. Reach for a star, and I’ll show you a plan
Lost In Love - Air Supply

12. We’re the last to leave the party, the first to ask for more
Boys Will Be Boys - Choirboys

13. I’m not asking for a love to last forever, I don’t expect to get a guarantee

14. From an ocean liner to a Chinese junk, there ain’t been a ship that can’t be sunk
Man On Your Mind - LRB

15. Like a bulldozer chasing butterflies, down sad English streets you wander
Turn A Blind Eye - Hunters and Collectors

16. Dad’s so bad he lives in the pub, its underarms and football clubs
Power and The Passion - Midnight Oil

17. I ran right out of beer, took a look into the larder
The Nips Are Getting Bigger - Mental As Anything

18. Where rainbows flash, as we’re walking in the sand
Touch of Paradise - John Farnham

19. I’m bleeding to death on a cloudless day, a three four heartbeat, a waltzing away
Counting The Beat - The Swingers

20. Prospect of reconciliation, memories of some funny conversation
Things Don't Seem - Australian Crawl

Good get, Diddy :)

Wondering if I made this one too hard now, but figured there were plenty of other 80's tragics here :)
