We all love the occasional outburst of Aussie pride here in Little Australia (New York): a few sausages on the barbecue whilst draped in large flags and throwing back a beer or seven. Our Aussie mates also may indulge in some tunes – pull dad’s old three (four, once) string guitar and sing with an intoxicated zeal. Fortunately for Australia, there are representatives from their sunburnt country who are talented, and sing with verve and melody, despite any level of alcohol consumption.

There are many means of international recognition, but Portable has decided to recognize those fair-dinkum Aussies (or adopted Aussies) who have topped the US Billboard charts, in honor of Gotye making it to number one last week.
