Hey all,

 

 

 

A good friend is having his 21st this weekend, I have been tasked with a music playlist and a speech, The latter will come to me on the night after a few drinks cool.
The music is pretty much going to be bangers, oldies but goldies, sing alongs etc. Something the typical Kiwi would know, I am talking th' Dudes bliss, The exponents Why does love, even though im blue, Dobbyn and the rest. You know where im going with it!
The question is, Does anyone have any good "Bangers" to add to this i may have missed or think would be suitable!
Here is the spotify link to get an idea: https://open.spotify.com/user/timalexander-nz/playlist/2RMBbrOLjD4P9qBt20Y03i

Thanks all,

PS: Not kiwi, but any drunken sing-a-long playlist needs at least one version of "Stuck in the middle with you" :p

Got to have Bliss on there (or the Sam Hill remix for extra doff doff).

 

And Wagon Wheel is like the gold standard in sing a longs these days. Maybe The Gambler? Can't Get Enough? that song from Outrageous Fortune?

Hey all, Good feedback! Im surprised i missed some of Elemeno P and Goodshirt. We are all pretty young so will be keeping it to a well known group of songs!

Some of these songs are bloody cheesy but heck its gonna be good! The dance album by Fleetwood Mac looks good! 

Will sneak in some Crowded house and Split enz :D

There's nothing like a bit of The Front Lawn - the 21 year old will probably have never heard of them but older people in the crowd will rejoice lol. My older brothers used to listen to them so I grew up with this music but had no idea who they were at the time. It was not until the internet had been around a few years that I rediscovered the pleasure of their sonic delights:

 

How You Doing

 

When You Come Back Home

 

Tomorrow Night

 

Oh, and don't forget True Bliss LOL


Banana?
