Best Ever! Top 21 NZ Songs


Best Ever! Top 21 NZ Songs

Last week was Radio One NZ Music Week, and with it being Radio One’s 21st year of broadcast, we had the rather brilliant idea – if I do say so myself – of getting listeners to vote for their favourite NZ song, like ever! Seems that there were hundreds of Radio One listeners just waiting for the opportunity to express their opinion on this very important matter!

And, the moment you have been waiting for!

The results:

1. The Clean Point That Thing Somewhere Else
2. Skeptics Affco
3. The Chills Pink Frost
4. Darcy Clay Jesus I Was Evil
5. The Phoenix Foundation Hitchcock
6. 3Ds Spooky
7. Salmonella Dub Love Your Ways
8. Gordons Coalminers Song
9. Die! Die! Die! Ashtray Ashtray
10. Toy Love Squeeze
11. Fat Freddy’s Drop Hope
12. Chris Knox Not Given Lightly
13. Snapper Hang On
14. Blam Blam Blam There Is No Depression In New Zealand
15. Concord Dawn Morning Light
16. DLT and Che Fu Chains
17. The Scavengers Mr X
18. The Great Unwashed Hold Onto The Rails
19. Trinity Roots Home, Land and Sea
20. Gestalt Switch Nothing Has Changed
21. Coconut Rough Sierra Leone

Howard Davis: Kenneth Branagh’s Black & White Belfast

Branagh has assembled a wonderful cast, including Ciarán Hinds, a gently formidable actor who well deserves his Oscar nomination, and Judi Dench, who steals every scene she’s in. More>>

Howard Davis: Dennis Villeneuve’s Dune - A Brief History

So many elements of Herbert’s novel have since become tropes of popular SciFi that Villeneuve’s film sometimes seems deceptively derivative. What makes all this nonsense essential viewing is his astonishing visual sensibility. More>>

Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which has been republished by Te Papa press. More>>
