For some reason, every time I listen to "Honky tonk women" (my favourite
Stones song) I think that it would be great to hear Midnight Oil doing
it. So that one is my choice!

Maybe it's something about Garrett's and Jagger's manners of singing;
does anyone else think that the Oils' cover(!) "Wharf Rat" occasionally
sounds like the Rolling Stones?
