Comments about Beds are Burning:

Horrible cover, for wiping out the political context of the song. It's like those covers of John Lennon's "Happy Christmas (War Is Over)" that fail to get that it's about Vietnam, not Christmas.

Novaspace.. how could 19% of you vote for THAT! One more tune to fill the last "Mega hit connection" compilation. Midnight Oil wins this round

I hate Midnight Oil, Peter Garrett not only dances like an epileptic octopus, but he makes a lousy Member of Parliament! He has always been too sickly "goody goody" with the crap he spouts. Any band that can take away the propaganda from the song and actually make it entertaining gets my vote!

Dear Novaspace,

Just because a song has the word "dance" in the lyrics, that doesn't mean you should make a by-the-numbers club version.

Sincerely,

How can you get the same feel Peter put into this song about aboriginal rights in Australia? Midnight Oil has always done songs about the indigenous folks (Dead Heart, etc...).

No brainer here...
