Theme Ride Thursday: Australia Day

A post from the vault. We’d love to see someone create a profile from this.  

G’day, mate! Today we honor Australian artists as we gear up for Australia Day on Sunday, January 26. Celebrate the diversity this country has brought us from artists such as INXS, Kylie Minogue, Sia, AC/DC, Men at Work, and my personal favorite, The Temper Trap.  

We’ve also included some fun facts to quiz your class on while teaching this profile. 


  1. Be sure to add Tones and I (two of her songs were featured in Mainstream Music Monday posts in the past 3 weeks) and Dean Lewis (who was featured on Dec 20, 2019). Also currently popular are Mallrat, Tame Impala, Pnau (I like Go Bang), Rüfüs Du Sol.

  2. Hi – just to confirm in case anyone wants to find the song; Men at Work sing ‘Down Under.

  3. Hi Jennifer…um pretty sure Dire Straits are from UK not Australia…trust me we would claim them but it’s not true.

    1. ha ha! Thanks so much Trudy! Goodness…I have always thought they were Australian!
      ….now I’m embarrassed! 😉

      (took ’em out!)
