"One Tony Lockett" is a song recorded by Australian musician James Freud as a tribute to St Kilda and Sydney AFL player Tony Lockett, who booted his record-breaking 1300th goal shortly before the release of the track. The song utilises the music of the popular traditional Cuban song "Guantanamera". Released in 1999 with the backing of the Seven Network, the song charted in the Top 40 during the month of June, reaching a peak of #38.
The song began as a goal scoring chant in the SCG's O'Reilly Stand. Sam Mercurio, Gus Mercurio's, daughter in law, came up with the chant and eventually roused the whole stand every time "Plugger" scored a goal. A few seasons later the whole SCG understood what we were singing and joined in, with James Freud eventually recording the tune. Thanks to Mustang.

Prelusive is the 2002 independent debut EP by Australian singer–songwriter Sarah Blasko. A video was made for "Your Way", and the song received a great deal of airplay on youth radio station Triple J. The EP is called 'Prelusive' "because that means introductory, from the word 'Prelude', which is a musical term meaning a short, independent composition" said Blasko in a 2003 interview. "And so I thought that word really fit because the EP is relatively short- only six songs, and it’s independent, and it’s a composition, or a number of compositions."

"The Horses" is a song written by Rickie Lee Jones and Walter Becker. The song was covered by Daryl Braithwaite on his 1990 album Rise. It was released as a single in January 1991 and reached No. 1 on the Australian singles chart in May. "The Horses" was certified platinum in Australia by ARIA. Margaret Urlich provided the female vocals on the recording but chose not to appear in the music video due to other work commitments. A model, Gillian Mather, lip-synced Urlich's voice for the video.
In May 2016, while celebrating the 25th anniversary of the song peaking at number 1 in Australia, Braithwaite said: "I would never have thought that 25 years down the track, 'The Horses' – a song that I heard quite by accident and then recorded, would be liked by so many people for so many different reasons. And for this I am eternally grateful. I am sure that Rickie Lee Jones and Walter Becker could never imagine how endearing the song would and has become." The song was certified 5× Platinum in December 2017.

Page and Plant reunited in 1994 and decided to perform many of the Led Zeppelin classics with a different style, a more acoustic style, with a Moroccan flare I believe. They never recorded these new realizations on a studio album, instead they took their idea on tour, to Morocco I guess, and recorded a live album titled “No Quarter” named after the popular song from 1973’s “Houses of The Holy.” The new style was slower and this ironically did not really work for the most famous songs off the album “Kashmir” and “No Quarter,” at least not in my opinion, but it did work for more emotional songs like “Thank You” and the “That’s The Way” and Page and Plant basically reinvented “Nobody’s Fault But Mine” and for the better in my opinion.“Wonderful One” is definitely the best new song, and quite believably the best track off of, “No Quarter.”

"Love Rollercoaster" was covered by the Red Hot Chili Peppers in 1996, recorded and produced by Sylvia Massy. This version includes original rap-based verses and additional lyrics provided by guest female backup singers, as well as the horn section being replaced with an approximation played on kazoos. The song appears on the soundtrack for the animated feature film Beavis and Butt-head Do America. An animated music video was made for the song, featuring Beavis, Butt-head, and the band riding an amusement park roller coaster, intercut with scenes from the film. The song is played early in the movie as well, when Beavis and Butt-head arrive in Las Vegas. In the dance hall scene, a fictional funk band is shown performing the song live (the one appearing on the single cover).
Although the song became a crossover hit, peaking at #40 on the Billboard Hot 100 Airplay chart and at #22 on the Mainstream Top 40 chart, it did not enter the top 10 on the Modern Rock Tracks chart (peaking at #14), let alone hit #1, and it failed to enter the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart. The band has never performed the song live. The single reached #19 in Australia and #35 in New Zealand.
"Lesbian Seagull" is a song originally recorded and released on the 1979 Tom Wilson Weinberg album, The Gay Name Game. It gained further fame when it was performed by Engelbert Humperdinck, which appeared on the soundtrack of the 1996 MTV/Paramount film Beavis and Butt-head Do America.
History. Mike Judge, creator-designer of Beavis and Butt-head, heard the song in a David Letterman "Dave's Record Collection" segment and contacted Weinberg about using it in the film, in which it is sung by Judge himself, as the voice of one of Beavis and Butt-head's teachers, David Van Driessen. Humperdinck's version, used in the end credits of the film and included on the soundtrack released on the Universal/Geffen Records label, was used as the B-side of Red Hot Chili Peppers's cover of the Ohio Players' "Love Rollercoaster", which was released as a single in its own right.
