Gary Baines' Top 20
My favourite South African rock songs (in no particular order) follow. These do not include covers - otherwise I would have to include Otis Waygood Blues Band's version of "Fever" and something by the Flames - and are all original numbers as far as I know. It should also be apparent that I use 'rock' in a loose, eclectic sense.
