Sarah Blasko RAGE guest programmer!!!


7 Oct 2008, 13:21

On the 5th November 2005 Sarah Blasko was the RAGE guest programmer so I’m going to list it in this journal on Sarah Blasko is my favourite female singer, along with PJ Harvey and Beth Gibbons, but Sarah is the only one who has guest programmed RAGE. I did a journal about Nick Cave (check my older journals for that) and he’s my favorite male singer along with Bob Dylan and Tom Waits but they haven’t done RAGE either. I’m going to do a journal about when Dirty Three were RAGE guest programmers, which is my favorite band. The Drones and Portishead are other favorite bands but once again neither have guest programmed RAGE. If some how I’ve missed these bands and they have done RAGE please let me know.

I’m going to link all the songs Sarah Blasko picked that night for easy to find. Maybe you should look the videos up on youtube if you wanted to see them because RAGE is a TV show if you don’t know. If you live overseas or on another planet, RAGE is an Aussie late night TV show that bands or artists pick their favourite songs and show video clips for the songs. They talk about some but don’t really say any thing more than “I love this song” type of thing. I do have Sarah’s night on video tape if I can find it and plug in the video player, see what she has to say. I do remember she invited someone from her band in to talk about his favourite band which I think is the R.E.M. song but that is from memory.

Anyway here is the list below -
Radiohead - Pyramid Song
UNKLE - Rabbit in Your Headlights
Interpol - Evil
The Flaming Lips - Do You Realize??
The Sleepy Jackson - Sunkids
Wilco - Shot in the Arm
Cat Power - He War
PJ Harvey - A Place Called Home
Kelis - Caught out There
Missy Elliot - Work It
Pulp - This Is Hardcore
Babybird - Bad Old Man
Tricky - Poems
The Postal Service - Such Great Heights
Underground Lovers - Losin' It
The Smiths - Ask
R.E.M. - South Central Rain
Smudge - Hot Potato
Belle & Sebastian - Lazy Line Painter Jane
Badly Drawn Boy - Silent Sigh
Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds - Breathless
Sounds Like Sunset - Each Time You Smile
Youth Group - Skeleton Jar
dEUS - Instant Street
The Muppets - Rainbow Connection
Joanna Newsom - Sprout and the Bean
Bjork - Pagan Poetry
Sparklehorse - Sunshine
Heligoland - Lo Scavo
Scud Mountain Boys - Penthouse in the Woods
Dave Graney 'N' The Coral Snakes - Rock 'n' Roll Is Where I Hide
Eurythmics - Here Comes The Rain Again
INXS - Original Sin
Smashing Pumpkins - 1979
Sonic Youth - Sunday
Frente! - Ordinary Angels
Wheat - Don't I Hold You
Mazzy Star - Fade Into You
Holly Throsby - We're Good People But Why Don't We Show It
The Shins - New Slang

Well that is it. What happens next is RAGE plays all of Sarah video clips and that night it was followed by all of Kate Bush’s video clips too. If anyone knows what Sarah is up to now please let me know. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.
