25. Scatterlings of Africa - Juluka

There was also a song by Soweto String Quartet which I cannot for the life of me remember the name of.. but when I hear it, the smell of the African soil comes wafting back to my senses.

and where's "Ag pleez daddy"?

and I'm surprised "Ek verlang na jou" is not there either

although glad to see Lucky Dube got a mention, although "Back to my Roots" and "Feel Irie" could be there too...

no Jonathan Butler neither...

I've voted twice so far, Dog Detachments "Miracle (Waiting for a ...)" and Falling Mirror's "Johnny Calls the Chemist", neither of which are on the list.

I still have to vote for "Impi" and a few 100 others :p
