Bay City Rollers - yes they were awful musicians, but it was a clean and decent time and the catchy lyrics (that I still remember) and clothing were absolutely smashing to experience.
Earth, Wind & Fire - brilliant musicians, catchy romantic lyrics
Queen - versatile and fan-blooming-tastic

Have you got 'Last FM' or 'Deezer' or even better 'Spotify' over there Expat?
Have a look,they are all fine music stations.
If you put Nick Drake and Tim Buckley in the search boxes you will find a lot of good music that is still played and covered today.
Of course...The Doobie Brothers are high on my list....As are Steely Dan.
I have fairly recently discovered and loved Goldfrapp,Massive Attack,Alabama 3....Check them out on Spotify,it is really good!!
