The 15 largest Australian dancefloor anthems – sorted!

Australia’s DJs, producers and uncredited ghostwriters have an uncanny knack for delivering bangers on the common, from acid techno freakouts to tribal house workouts and past. Anthem standing, nevertheless, isn’t so simply attained. The primary prerequisite? An enormous, belt-it-out-at-the-top-of-your-lungs vocal hook or a refrain you may see a burly tradie mouthing the phrases to within the condiments aisle.

This all signifies that livid chin-stroking over whether or not Lydian & the Dinosaur or Fasten Your Seatbelt greatest represents Australian breakbeat could be placed on maintain (for now).

15. Rüfüs Du Sol – Take Me (2013)

The extra bold and expansive Rüfüs Du Sol get, the much less overtly anthemic their output turns into. Counterintuitive? Maybe. However again after they had been simply plain outdated Rüfüs they captured lightning within the bottle on their first album out of the blocks. Gentle, ethereal, direct and never afraid to embrace its inner Booka Shade, Take Me is tropical home with heft in its engine room and escape in its coronary heart.

14. Confidence Man – Vacation (2021)

If conjuring pure pleasure in the midst of rolling Covid lockdowns was a superpower, you might slap some spandex on Confidence Man and name them the Unbelievable 4. Vacation is the sound of catharsis, dropping simply as Australians had been peering out from behind the shutters to see if the skin world was sane once more. Channelling the spirit of Madchester and the hedonism of electroclash, it’s that uncommon anthem the place the verses do the heavy lifting. “One life, good because it will get, I’ll take it” ought to’ve been Vacation’s calling card; “once I was a baby I used to be so bare” is the road individuals scream.

13. Euphoria – Love You Proper (1991)

Within the four-year interval between Ride on Time and Let Me Show You reaching piano-house perfection got here Love You Proper, Australia’s personal chart-topper. Sure, that could be a shirtless, pre-Mentalist fame Simon Baker cavorting round a microphone offering “backing vocals” within the clip. And he’s not the one one getting all Milli Vanilli: it wasn’t till the European launch of Love You Proper that the observe’s precise singer, Keren Minshull, was given the spotlight. Whereas the orchestral synth stabs and total manufacturing could not have weathered the years so nicely, Minshull’s vocal remains to be “screaming diva” par excellence.

12. Bag Raiders – Capturing Stars (2008)

Capturing Stars’ street to anthem standing was extra lengthy and winding than most. Originally tucked away as a B-side, two years later it was the shining gentle on the Sydney duo’s eponymous debut album. The observe itself is a gradual burn, nearly sombre if it weren’t for that synth hook looping its manner up via the octaves till the refrain heads for house. Nevertheless it was the observe’s second life as a meme, beginning off in 2015 and climaxing with a Katy Perry tribute, that despatched the Bag Raiders into the stratosphere.

11. Sneaky Sound System – Photos (2006)

Overheard at Splendour within the Grass in 2007: “Each time a DJ performs Sneaky, a kitten dies.” Suffice it to say, the nation’s feline inhabitants had already taken fairly a success by that time, whether or not courtesy of the disco-funk authentic or Tonite Solely’s electro house remix (with Sam La Extra, he of PNAU’s Littlemore brothers fame, one of many duo accountable). In an period dominated by in-your-face synths and screaming vocal hooks, Sneaky Sound System’s spacious association gave Connie Mitchell’s voice loads of room to glitter. A lot to the chagrin of cat lovers and Photos haters alike.

10. Timmy Trumpet and Savage – Freaks (2014)

Not each dancefloor anthem could be profound. “Is kindness an historical ability buried by our blindness?” asks Farnesy, in the direction of the sharp finish of this record. Timmy Trumpet’s considerations are extra direct: “Inform me, the place the freaks at?” Fact be advised, it’s not Savage’s rhymes however Timmy’s brass that elevates this boilerplate piece of EDM silliness from ridiculous to chic. Till then higher often known as a sidearm for Queensland DJ duo the Stafford Brothers, Freaks remodeled the person born Tim Smith right into a gunslinger in his personal proper.

9. PNAU – Embrace (2007)

PNAU’s self-titled third album brimmed with shout-along moments – No! Extra! Violence!, Wild! Straw-berries! – however Embrace was its centrepiece, with Peter Mayes and the brothers Littlemore ceding the highlight to particular visitor Pip Brown, higher often known as Ladyhawke. Its fame was sealed when the group took the brand new LP, a bunch of fruity costumes and a plethora of monumental balloons across the nation on the 2008 Massive Day Out tour. Elton John signed on because the group’s official No 1 ticket-holder shortly after and PNAU’s profession would by no means once more be within the doldrums.

8. Hermitude feat. Chaos Emerald – Converse of the Satan (2012)

If anybody who’d been following Hermitude’s decade-long profession up so far suspected Luke Dubs and Elgusto had one thing like Converse of the Satan in them, they’d saved it to themselves. The remainder of the five-star HyperParadise album is extra akin to the esoteric, introspective hip-hop the Blue Mountains duo had cast a good profession on, till this explosion; an infectious shot within the arm with a bassline that slaps, a snare drum that snaps and a vocal chorus that calls for motion: “That little satan in your shoulder / It’s telling you to bounce.”

7. The Potbelleez – Don’t Maintain Again (2007)

Strolling down the grassy knoll overlooking Brisbane’s Riverstage within the early afternoon as Parklife 2007 warmed up, two issues had been obvious: Kid Kenobi wasn’t playing breaks any more, and everybody knew the phrases to this tune with the acoustic guitar breakdown however me. Earlier than Don’t Maintain Again was synonymous with selling American SUVs to the masses, it was already triple platinum large. It catapulted the Potbelleez from Sydney DJ residencies to family title standing. And who’s that with a writing and manufacturing credit score? Who else but Sam Littlemore.

6. Madison Avenue – Don’t Name Me Child (1999)

Solely a matter of months after a few youngsters with a sampler and far greater issues forward launched Australia’s definitive funky house album got here a 12-inch that grew to become the nation’s definitive tackle the style. The bassline groove is borrowed from an obscure Italo pop outing, itself interpolated from a Black American disco hit, however Don’t Name Me Child pays it ahead with a scorching vocal efficiency from the perspective of a girl who isn’t placing up together with your shit any extra, pal. Perhaps if Madison Avenue had carried out this on the Aria Awards, Cheyne Coates wouldn’t have been so thirsty.

5. John Farnham – Age of Purpose (1988)

Sure, John Farnham’s first tune out of the blocks post-Whispering Jack was a membership banger in its time courtesy of a 12-inch combine which opens borderline Balearic (lush pads, tinkling pianos) earlier than that voice – the voice – chimes in and the refrain reaches for the heavens. There’s a cause kitschy Canberra Client Liaison dragged Farnesy out on tour, and why Melbourne DJ and Rinse FM resident CC:DISCO still gives Age of Reason a spin: it’s pure fireplace, whether or not in its authentic kind, given the slow-mo disco treatment or the euphoria factor is dialled up to 11.

4. Kylie – Can’t Get You Out Of My Head (2001)

On a Night Like This followers are welcome to lodge a protest (though technically, like The Horses, that Australian anthem is a cover), however Disco Kylie’s early-noughties scorching streak topped out with an ode to obsessive love and a refrain of la-la-lala-las. Mashed up with New Order’s timeless megabomb? Check. Coated by the Flaming Lips? Check. Madonna could have finally one-upped her with Hung Up, however for 4 years our Kylie was queen of the dance-pop world.

3. The Presets – My Folks (2007)

Equal components brooding, menacing and outright slamming, My Folks capped the Presets’ regular ascendancy from small rooms to out of doors phases (courtesy of a run on Daft Punk’s near-mythical Nevereverland tour) – and the way. Julian Hamilton and Kris Moyes pull off the seemingly unattainable by disguising a fierce protest tune – decrying the Howard government’s treatment of asylum seekers – as a name to motion on the dancefloor. Not the entire exponents of the Modular sound have aged so gracefully (Muscle mass followers, don’t @ me). However in a summer season overflowing with instantaneous classics – as this countdown attests – My Folks strode like a colossus above all of them.

2. Yothu Yindi – Treaty (Filthy Lucre Radio Edit) (1991)

A songwriting group together with Dr Yunupingu, Paul Kelly and Peter Garrett laid the platform, nevertheless it was the dancefloor smarts of Filthy Lucre that took Treaty to the world. The Melbourne trio stripped again the unique’s roots-rock trappings, added piano riffs and Hamilton Bohannon samples (“Clap your fingers and dance!”), and put the “Treaty, yeah!” chorus up in lights. Many remixers have taken the scissors to Yothu Yindi’s protest tune through the years – Carl Cox, William Orbit and Peace Division amongst them – however none have invigorated it fairly just like the OG remix. Greater than 30 years later, the urgency of the music and the message stay.

1. The Bee Gees – Stayin’ Alive (1977)

Who else to get lungs bursting on the seams one final time however Redcliffe’s most interesting, strutting breezily previous a burnt-out subway prepare prefer it’s a Sunday stroll alongside the Esplanade. Throw a dart at your tattered Saturday Evening Fever gatefold sleeve and also you’ll discover a disco inferno worthy of this record – Tony Manero had his favourite. Nevertheless it’s unattainable to go previous Stayin’ Alive: the guitar riff, the falsetto, the rumination on “the New York Occasions’ impact on man”. And that held be aware on the finish of the refrain, which is able to nonetheless be echoing throughout dancefloors a dozen disco revivals into the longer term.

The 15 finest singles by Australian cleaning soap stars – sorted

Australian soaps have spawned an infinite quantity of pop music – from true classics to earworms you’ve buried away in your deep unconscious.

We’re reaching the tip of an period now that Neighbours is ending, so we’re counting down the most effective songs to have come from cleaning soap stars who took half within the time-honoured custom of stepping right into a recording studio and giving it a red-hot go.

And we’re sorry for the overwhelming whiteness of this listing. Australian soaps haven’t historically been beacons of diversity and inclusion.

15. Learn My Lips by Melissa Tkautz

This Actual Housewife of Sydney’s signature pop music knocked Grease Megamix (the third best-selling single of 1991) out of the No 1 place on the Aria charts. It additionally established a template for soap-to-pop stardom that will be adopted for years to come back with its flirty, assured lyrics and simple danceability. It created one other legacy, too: the video stars a younger Simon Baker. A charmed Tkautz launched him her boss on E Avenue, touchdown him his first appearing position.

14. All Seats Taken by Bec Cartwright

Little has been written in regards to the former House and Away star’s pop profession. And that’s most likely honest sufficient. However we’ll fortunately struggle for her 2002 debut single, All Seats Taken. The music is ostensibly about reserving a complete venue for a romantic, intimate evening, which is one thing we are able to think about Cartwright and her husband, Lleyton Hewitt, doing after they first acquired collectively. The lyrics recommend that the venue is a restaurant however the music video is filmed in a curler disco. Sadly, there’s no skating within the video, which maybe explains why her pop profession by no means reached the heights of fellow Australian blond bombshell and roller disco enthusiast Olivia Newton-John.

13. In Your Room by Toni Pearen

The E Avenue actor was signed to the identical label as her co-star Tkautz, however Learn My Lips was deemed too raunchy for her – so she struck gold in 1992 with the extra dreamily flirty In Your Room, which peaked at No 10 on the Aria charts. Whereas her second single I Want You scored Pearen an Aria nod, In Your Room is the lovelier observe. There’s one thing splendidly particular, and completely lust-struck, in regards to the concept of getting right into a love curiosity’s bed room and making an attempt on all the garments.

12. Particularly for You by Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan

The British pop songwriting trio Inventory Aitken Waterman wrote loads of Minogue earworms early on in her profession, and a few of Donovan’s largest hits. However none can surpass the pop cultural second of 1988’s Particularly for You, launched not lengthy after Donovan and Minogue’s characters on Neighbours, Scott and Charlene, have been married. It’s schmaltz of the irresistible selection, and was particularly enormous within the UK, the place it turned the fourth highest-selling document of the 12 months.

11. Mistake by Stephanie McIntosh

The Neighbours actor comes from a soap-opera household: her half-brother, Jason Donovan, his daughter Jemma and his father, Terence, have all appeared on the cleaning soap. The making of her album, Tightrope, was the topic of a 2006 reality TV show, which appears like a bit a lot till you realise the songwriters have additionally written bops for Janet Jackson, Jennifer Lopez and Britney Spears. The album has an aggressively of-the-moment pop-rock sound that will be immediately forgettable if it didn’t embody a really bonkers cowl of the Burt Bacharach/Hal David traditional Wishin’ and Hopin’. After which there’s Mistake, a wonderfully assembled slice of lost-love-catharsis with a refrain that simply begs you to scream alongside.

10. Born to Attempt by Delta Goodrem

Goodrem debuted Born to Attempt, her first No 1 single, in 2002 on Neighbours, whereas taking part in an aspiring singer referred to as Nina Tucker. In contrast to different cleaning soap stars-turned-singers, Goodrem’s stint on the present was as a lot about launching her music profession as tv stardom. The piano pop ballad was our first introduction to her musical fashion however truly not her debut single. That got here a 12 months earlier with the poppy I Don’t Care (penned by the writers behind Christina Aguilera’s Genie in a Bottle), which did not make a lot of an affect. Fortunately, Sony realised she was extra snug behind a piano in singer-songwriter territory. Born to Attempt is one among her finest, with a superb, hovering vocal. The lyrics is likely to be a bit on the naive facet however we are able to most likely reduce the 17-year-old Goodrem some slack there.

9. Voodoo Youngster by Rogue Merchants

Right here come the drums. In 2004 the Melbourne digital rock band Rogue Merchants added a celeb to their lineup: Natalie Bassingthwaighte, who earned three Logie nominations for taking part in Izzy Hoyland in Neighbours. Once they launched Voodoo Youngster, they stored their identification of their new vocalist a secret at first: they didn’t wish to money in on her celeb. The observe reached No 4 on the Aria charts and was licensed platinum. There are a couple of the explanation why: first, there’s the re-recorded model of Elvis Costello’s Pump it Up riff, a magic ingredient that also kills (see Olivia Rodrigo’s Brutal), and there’s the Merchants’ electro-punk playfulness. But it surely’s Nat Bass’s vocals, pop pacing and readability, with a little bit rock-tinged growl, that pulls all of it collectively.

8. Kiss Kiss by Holly Valance

In some ways, Kiss Kiss was each a blessing and a curse as Holly Valance’s debut single: the Neighbours’ alum’s cowl of the English-language cover of Turkish artist Tarkan’s Şımarık (Spoilt) is simply sexy-pop-fun sufficient to be irresistible. The 2002 observe reached No 1 in Australia and cracked the highest 10 in 17 international locations. Whereas her two follow-up singles carried out nicely, she may by no means match the dizzying heights of Kiss Kiss. The music video, directed by Tim Royes, stays a traditional with its indulgent close-ups of Valance’s crimson lips, wet-look hair and louche choreography. The “mwahs” are each foolish and hypnotic. A masterpiece.

7. I Start to Marvel by Dannii Minogue

Dannii, a House and Away alum, adopted massive sister Kylie’s chart-topping Fever album along with her personal assortment of disco-tinged electro-pop: 2003’s Neon Nights. It’s such a robust album (lead single Put the Needle On It is tremendous attractive and refined, whereas Creep was proper within the pop zeitgeist) that it feels unfair of us to even point out Kylie right here. For the record, it’s pretty much as good as something Kylie has launched. I Start to Marvel is the standout, with its rapid-fire verses and cooing choruses.

6. Love at First Sight by Kylie Minogue

2002’s Love at First Sight was the third single from Minogue’s Fever album, on the peak of her profession renaissance. It’s three minutes and fifty-seven seconds of unadulterated pleasure. When Minogue sings “all the things went from flawed to proper”, you’d be hard-pressed to argue. The music scored the singer her first Grammy nomination and at all times offers the right hands-in-the-air Kylie-style love-in at her dwell reveals.

5. Can’t Get You Out of My Head by Kylie Minogue

Pop doesn’t come rather more effortlessly cool than this 2001 observe. The insistent, pulsating bassline drives house the obsession inherent within the lyric; it’s endlessly danceable; and its futuristic music video options one among Minogue’s most celebrated appears to be like: a flowing white jumpsuit reduce all the best way all the way down to her navel, testing the boundaries of each physics and nipple tape. The music was initially supplied to Sophie Ellis Bextor and S Membership 7, but it surely’s tough to think about one other artist who may carry the intimacy and all-encompassing need to life on this easiest of melodies. Minogue says she wished to document the music after listening to simply 20 seconds of the demo. Thank God she did. Thank God S Membership 7 didn’t.

4. Torn by Natalie Imbruglia

Typically an ideal pop music is simply ready for the suitable artist. Scott Cutler and Anne Preven (who co-wrote Beyoncé’s Dreamgirls quantity Listen) wrote Torn with Phil Thornalley, who additionally wrote Shannon Noll’s Drive (!!!). They recorded it themselves as Ednaswap, then Liv Sørensen launched the Danish-language model Brændt, and Trine Rein’s version hinted at its pop future. However when Imbruglia left Neighbours for Torn, all the things fell into place. Her take paired refreshingly prepared emotion with a music video directed by Alison Maclean that has Imbruglia singing into the digital camera as if she’s confessing her emotions right into a mirror. Discuss relatable pop: no marvel it was the 1997 No 1 on airplay around the globe.

3. This Is It by Dannii Minogue

This 1993 cowl of Melba Moore’s 1976 disco gem doesn’t mess a lot with the unique successful system, with a really 90s dance-pop beat thrown in by the producers Tim Lever and Mike Percy (of Useless or Alive fame). Whereas this single was launched on the tail-end of Minogue’s first section as a pop artist and obtained blended opinions from critics, it’s a stayer: her vocals are an prompt uplift – an entire room will get on its ft should you play the observe in a homosexual membership. It does precisely what a pop music is meant to do: it modifications the temper within the room. Attempt to take heed to it with out smiling.

2. Misplaced With out You by Delta Goodrem

In 2003 Goodrem was in all places. Not solely did she launch Harmless Eyes, the highest-selling album of the last decade, however she was nonetheless a Neighbours common. The second single, Misplaced With out You, stands as top-of-the-line Australian pop recordings of the previous few a long time. It’s one among simply three songs from her debut album which Goodrem didn’t write herself, however its dramatic construction, cascading piano riffs and tear-soaked lyrics all make it traditional Delta. It turned much more beloved when Darren Hayes covered the song at the 2003 Aria awards in an emotional tribute to Goodrem, who received seven awards that evening however was unable to carry out as she was recovering from remedy for Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

1. Higher the Satan You Know by Kylie Minogue

There may solely be one No 1, and it may solely be Kylie. This 1990 tune is the most effective of Kylie and the most effective of pop: a dancefloor sensation with a melody that builds, double backs and repeats. This music gave her a extra mature sound – together with a extra “grown-up” presentation that Pete Waterman was satisfied would finish her profession. As an alternative, it revealed her true power and endurance and positioned herat the forefront of the then rising pattern of digital pop. Earlier than this music, Kylie was beloved. After Higher the Satan You Know, she was a famous person.

Salman Toor: How Will I Know at the Whitney Museum, New York

The Whitney has actually timed admission presently, so I leapt at the possibility to go see this.

There are scenes where they dance with each other, where they welcome or where they simply look at their phones, however there’s an inflammation as well as a susceptability to the paints that Icolor is rather uncommon; the colour alone is otherworldly. It likewise activates its head the concept of these large team Renaissance paints, reimagining them as queer intimate scenes as well as I enjoy that.
