I thought it might be a good idea to come up with some songs which have never been played on Rage before - the ones we'd love to see. Perhaps Rage staff will see this list and get some inspiration for songs they can dig out from the VAULT.
I am not entirely sure whether all of these songs have never been on before, so if I have made an error, we can adjust the list. I've stuck to Countdown era years for now, but can add 1988/89 and pre-1974 if we want.
Also, I realise that some of these songs may have been on Countdown (live or official film clip) but I'd rather see the original film clip on Rage.

'Jackie Wilson Said' has aired as a standalone clip on rage before. A quick google reveals that it aired in September 2008, and again in August 2013; though the latter was during the watermark in the 4:3 area of the screen era.
I caught it, from 2008, and can potentially upload it if you do digital files and want it.
'Carrie' by Cliff Richard aired on the vault episode aired 13 November 2018. The artist/title superscript though, unfortunately, ran off the picture, into the left pillarbox bar.
rage have aired the Countdown performance of 'You Weren't In Love With Me' as a standalone video several times. Is there a concept music video for it?
I've got an official DVD copy of 'Strut', though seeing it as a standalone clip on rage would be nice.
By the way, if anyone reading wants to know how to google search rage playlists, you enter this into the search box:
site:www.abc.net.au/rage "artist name" "song title" (either/or, in quotation marks for the most-accurate results)
Unfortunately, since the rage website upgrade, the playlists before 2007 I think are not picked up anymore through using this search method. Similarly, most of the Monday night vault episodes are not on the rage website - it has only been really since last year that most of them (since then) have been posted. So searching the playlists will not bring up any clips that have aired only on the Monday night vault episodes.
"Listen To What The Man Said" is one of my favourite Wings songs but AFAIK there is no official video
Thanks Nathan. I just realised Carrie has been played recently, yes. I remember how glad I was to catch it. He was a hit machine, was Cliff. Well, that's encouraging to know that Rage have the Dexy's Midnight Runners clip of Jackie Wilson Said. I hope they play it again soon. Thanks for the corrections. I love Countdown performances of songs, but for Vault, I prefer the original. Yes, Billy Field did have this recording ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dhqBfIa6l5k

I'm sure that there are many others that will come to mind later on, but this is largely based on a list I have kept over the years.
Great suggestions there. Having just read these posts I feel now that I would like to add a list of music video clip/performances that I would really love Rage to either play for the first time or play again after having been played the first time around. My list is in no particular order of sequence, it is just a list of music video clips that I have always wanted to either see or copy for my own collection.

The Buzz Club 'Waiting'
This has aired on Vault episodes (can upload if you do digital files and want it):
Bette Midler 'Beast of Burden'
Thanks though I think I have it somewhere from a Rock Arena show a number of years back when Rage Retro Month played the show. I will check on that. I did also get a copy of the clip on Video Hits back in 2005 when it played without the commentary with Bette and Mick Jagger at the start. It was played during Bette Midler’s Australian Kiss My Brass Concert Tour.
Dionne Warwick ‘Heartbreaker’ clip was a performance from the American music show Solid Gold Back In 1982 from memory. I remember watching that episode at the time as ‘Solid Gold’ was also a regular viewing ritual for me. In regard to ‘Chain Of Fools’ music video clip from Girl Overboard I have a feeling I recorded that on Rage back in 1992 when it was released on the charts. Will check an email you if so.
More music video clips I would like to see back on Rage....

What about this film clip of Dreaming' by Cliff Richard? Vevo are usually quite 'official'.
Love your list Jason. Here's another Culture Club one ...
Love Is Love - Culture Club
Gee seeing all these lists of songs and artists makes you realise even with Rage extensive music video clip library just how many music clips still could yet be played even now to this day.
The retro nerdliness levels in this thread are extreme (or maybe I should say "off the charts") and I am here for it!
It's a pity there isn't someone with this kind of dedication involved in programming Rage.
One I forgot from 1986:
Suzanne Vega 'Left of Center' - has aired in 2000 and 2012, but was before digital TV in 2000, and plastered with the ABC1 watermark in 2012. It's not on the PAL version of her DVD.
I second Jason's suggestions for Kim Carnes' 'Voyeur' and Toto Coelo's 'Milk From the Coconut' (it's Toto, not To To).
As much as I'd love to see O'Chi Brown's '100% Pure Pain' on rage, it was not released as a single in Australia - at least, it does not appear in any of the Kent Music Report lists of new releases in 1986 (only 'Whenever You Need Somebody' and 'Rock Your Baby' do) - so rage probably can't air it (unless they wish to obtain a copy of the video).
Similarly, Neneh Chery's 'Inna City Mama' was not released as a single in Australia. An Australian-pressed copy is listed on discogs, but this is presumably for its New Zealand distribution. Yes, they got 'Inna City Mamma' as the 4th 'Raw Like Sushi' single, whereas we got 'Heart'.
Neither Stacey Q's 'I Love You' nor Princess's 'Tell Me Tomorrow' were released as singles locally, either.
I read or seen it maybe on Twitter that Rage are playing a Countdown show this Saturday too. Can anyone confirm or deny? Let’s hope so anyway. Although like many others on here I’m not fussed on Recovery or 10.30 Slot being replayed this soon as part of Rage Retro Month. I know there are a few that still want to see this era in music played too so I guess Rage are just trying to satisfy each demographic at the end of the day. I’m still pretty satisfied with the first 3 weeks so far for this year and like Jason or anybody else while it is sad there is always next January to look forward to. Years seem to go much quicker these days or probably it is me just getting older. 🤔😄🙏
I too have some more Rage music video clips that to my knowledge have never aired on Rage so far...
Any Day Of The Week - The Crocodiles (1979)
Tears - The Crocodiles (1980)
Telephone Lover - The Crocodiles (1980)
Cut The Talking - The Dugites (1983)
Juno And Me (1984)
Italian Boys - Electric Pandas (1985)
Dreams From Yesterday - The Numbers (1982)
Black And Blue - Chantoozies (2014)
Some great choices there, obviously a Cliff Richard fan - so am I!!
So who here is going to upload the Countdown video with Lynda Nutter intro to Youtube...I'm over the Video Hits copy! :grinning:
'Juno and Me' video that is.
Someone already has
Hot Summer Nights - Night (1979)
Suddenly - Cliff Richard & Olivia Newton-John (1980)
You've Lost That Loving Feeling - Long John Baldry & Kathi McDonald (1979) (1980 in Australia)
@Scott - some of those clips you’ve requested in your first post have been shown on rage in the digital era:
Losing You - Sharon O’Neill - as part of a Rock Arena replay
Danger - Sharon O’Neill - as part of a Countdown replay
Power - Sharon O’Neill - as part of an Antenna replay
Hummingbird - Eurogliders
Human On The Inside - Divinyls
Don’t Wanna Do This - Divinyls
I Know There’s Something Going On - Frida
That’s just the ones I know about without doing a search.
@Scott - clips from your second post that have been shown:
Baby It’s You - Promises (this has been shown quite a few times)
Idiot Grin - Do Re Mi - as part of a Rock Arena replay
I’m not aware of the clips from your third and fourth posts being shown but if I don’t follow a particular artist then I haven’t been on the lookout for their clips.
@Jason - Eurythmics “The Walk” (video clip with Annie in Black wig) has a very interesting history. Basically the clip is lost and there is no known high quality copy surviving anywhere in the world. If you go to my YouTube channel you’ll see my digital restoration of the last known copy which was from an extremely degraded Umatic tape copy kept by the director, Marek Budzynski.
Full story in the YouTube description of this video.
Very happy that one of my requests was on Rage VAULT last night ...
Stumbling' In - Suzi Quatro & Chris Norman
Pleasantly surprised about the different film clip too. Not the one I've seen before. Thank you, Rage. :slightly_smiling_face:
