This was the first CD I ever owned. I still treasure it...

Innocent Eyes (Delta Goodrem) 2003 ^^

I only have a compilation created by Loulou. Its got all the best ones anyway.

How good was This album. I had no idea it was so massive in Oz though.

Sister has it. Good album.
13 The Very Best of (The Eagles)
14 1 (The Beatles)
15 Affirmation (Savage Garden)
16 The Eminem Show (Eminem) ^^
17 Live (Throwing Copper) ^^
Sigh, another of my staples. Hardly listen to it anymore though. One of my favourite songs also got kind of ruined when I found out earlier this year that the Snowtown murderers used it while they killed people. Creepy!!!!
18 HIStory (Michael Jackson)
LOVE MICHAEL JACKSON! Always meant to buy this.
19 Don't Ask (Tina Arena)
Hahaha I remember dancing in Year 5 to Tina Arena in my friends basement/rumpus room. Good times.
20 The Sound of White (Missy Higgins) ^^
Must say I'm not as into her second album, this one will always be the best.
21 Soul Deep (Jimmy Barnes)
22 Get Born (Jet)
23 Unplugged (Eric Clapton)
24 Let Go (Avril Lavigne)
25 Barricades and Brickwalls (Kasey Chambers)

27 Odyssey No 5 (Powderfinger)
28 Remasters (Led Zeppelin)
29 Symbols (Led Zeppelin)
30 The Best of 1980-1990 (U2) ^^
This was MUCH bigger than the secong 1990-2000 Silver one. I have both, this ones better. It has all the Joshua Tree classics on it. I don't know if you ever heard the story, but Eca and I got tickets when the concert was released last year. We were both madly clicking the Ticketek website and I got through (yay!). Then they postponed their concert, AFTER Eca had booked her ticket to London, based on the concert date. Eca was devastated she was going to miss it, and I knew it wouldn't be the same without her either.
Fastforward, they're talking about re-schedule dates, and wouldn't you know it. The re-scheduled for when Eca was back in Australia for our wedding. Only problem was it was smack bang in the middle of our Honeymoon, so now I couldn't go.....
Apparently it was a great concert too.....
31 The Ultimate Collection (Creedence Clearwater Revival)
32 No Angel (Dido)
33 Greatest Hits (Robbie Williams)
34 Back To Bedlam (James Blunt)
35 Just As I Am (Guy Sebastian)
36 Fallen (Evanescence) ^^
37 That's What I'm Talking About (Shannon Noll)
38 Feeler (Pete Murray)
39 Life For Rent (Dido)
40 I'm Not Dead (Pink) ^^
41 Michael Buble (Michael Buble) ^^ (burned)
42 Breakaway (Kelly Clarkson)
43 Songs About Jane (Maroon 5)
44 Mistaken Identity (Delta Goodrem) ^^
45 American Idiot (Green Day)
46 It's Time (Michael Buble)
47 Love Angel Music Baby (Gwen Stefani)
48 Monkey Business (Black Eyed Peas)

2 things. Can you say 'how mainstream is my music taste'? Hee! Also, for the moment YOU actually have the Forrest Gump soundtrack for your listening pleasure, should you wish for some top 50 marathon style entertainment this weekend.
OK I also lied, there are 3 things.
Third thing, weirdly heard Savage Garden song whilst in an ATM room in Philly a few days ago and was compelled to dance about and sing along. Can't remember the song to complete the mental picture so just go on and pick one for yourself.....

Disturbed that Shannon Noll made the list... and Delta (not my favourite artists of all time.)

Good to see the old boys made it in there.
Zeppelin rules :D
