    This was hard, but I ended up voting for Kylie. I always liked her music and she is still making music I want to buy.

    I also liked Icehouse, INXS and Olivia.

    Re: Your Favorite Australian 80s Act/Artist:

    Wow, this was hard, but I picked ONJ. She's a fantastic singer. If I could choose three it would be:

    ONJ
    Icehouse
    Kylie

    I like INXS and Men at Work too.

    Some others that were missed were:
    The Eurogliders ("Heaven (Must Be There" ))
    Shona Laing (or is she from New Zealand?)
    Go-Betweens
    Mental is Anything (another I'm not sure is from Australia or New Zealand)

    I chose INXS -- love them! When Michael Hutchence died I had this strange, sick feeling in my stomach that I'd lost part of my childhood or something. Weird, eh?

    Re: Your Favorite Australian 80s Act/Artist:

    Geez - what a lot of great Aussies! Went with AC/DC on this one Their "Back in Black" album is just on of the greatest albums of the 80s

    I also liked Men at Work, Icehouse, INXS and ONJ. I think Kylie had better music later on - really disliked most of that SAW production in the 80s.

    Cause the walls start shaking
    The earth was quaking
    My mind was aching
    And we were making it and you
    Shook me all night long
    Yeah you shook me all night long



    Oh, I mean AC/DC

    Re: Your Favorite Australian 80s Act/Artist:

    Easy choice. Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. None of the others come close for me. In fact, I would probably give the same answer if the poll was "Favourite Act/Artist Anywhere, Ever" lol
    Boom! Boom!
    Waaahahahahaha!
