Top 10 quintessential Kiwi songs

April 30, 2009

Watching the launch of The Great New Zealand Song Book  on Close Up this evening, and following on from the list of top 10 Kiwi foods I decided to compile a list of top 10 kiwi songs.

In random order, showing my age and a woeful ignorance of modern music, I came up with:

1. Pokarekare Ana

2.  Hine E Hine

3. Te Harinui

4. Ballad of the Waitaki

5. Now is the Hour (Po Atarau)

6. Ten Guitars

7. Poi E

8. Tauramanui on the Main Trunk Line

9. We Don’t Know How Lucky We Are

10. Click Go The Shears (which I think we borrowed from the other side of the Tasman).
