And Red Sails in the Sunset is worth a listen if only for Jimmy Sharman's Boxers (no, not a song about loose fitting underwear).  ; )

Ryan Adams — Cold Roses
The Weepies — Gotta Have You
Alison Krauss & Union Station — The Lucky One
Midnight Oil — Dreamworld

Ugh! That's it... I'm outta here for now.

Thank God I have my own collection of self-approved RP music to play while I work this afternoon.

Great rock, thoughtful lyrics. I can understand that some may not like Peter's Garret's distinctive voice, but their harmonies are terrific. Saw them absolutely rock Jones Beach circa '86. Huge energy performers.

I can say I'm a tough fan of this band. I know this band is hard to bite, maybe that's why less than 15 songs from them appear on RP, It's better not to try to hear their music unless you're paying attention. Otherwise it can be pretty annoying.
 

HUH??

Diesel and dust is one of my favorite albums from the 80's. This song is brilliant indeed.

Brilliant song.  I can't relate to the haters below.  This album blasted the doors off vapid 80s drum machine pop and made music real again.

It doesn't 'just suck'.

It sucks like a collapsar.

Midnight Oil is an important example of the transition from the 80's to the 90's.

I've always like them, but to me they are like Dr. Pepper,  the first sip is delicious but with each swallow it gets less palatable.  I like to mix them in with other artists in mixes but I've had a hard time digesting a full album.

This tune is 6.9
