Decade: Some of Brian Currin’s favourite South African Tunes from the last ten years

An unordered list of songs by South African artists that have caught my attention over the last ten years.

And I will add to it often, I am sure.

  • Praha Paradise – Ernestine Deane
  • Mr Midnight – Jack Hammer
  • I’m Only Human – The Parlotones
  • Shout – Artists For A Safer SA

  • Staan My By – Die Radio Kalahari Orkes with Chris Chameleon
  • Great, Great Day – Watershed
  • Gasoline – Saron Gas
  • Paralyzer – Ghetto Muffin

Playlist Creator | Web Marketer The son of a church organist father and pianist mother, South African born Brian Currin grew up surrounded by music. In his pre-teen years he realised that he had no real talent for playing music and he couldn't sing, so he immersed himself in the world of music by listening, exploring and researching. Which he still does today. He spent many years in corporate sales and marketing until his involvement in the re-discovery of Rodriguez, opened up a whole new world for him. He is very involved in promoting South African music, and is the co-owner of a number of music-related websites including which he founded in 1999.

  1. Some brilliant songs on that list but despite being in the music game for a while, half i don’t recognize. That may be a good thing, saying that there’s so much talent in South Africa. I’ve been preparing a list too. I will post one day.
