I have a deep fondness for "Waltzing Matilda" by Banjo Paterson, being the unofficial national anthem of Australia and all. Slim Dusty's version is the best one I could find on Youtube.

To go with that, Eric Bogle's "And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda", although I prefer The Pogues' version. It's about the Gallipoli Campaign of World War I in which nearly 40,000 Australian and New Zealand soldiers lost their lives.

And finally, continuing with the war motif, Redgum's "I Was Only Nineteen", a song about the Vietnam War from the perspective of an Australian infantry soldier.

Yes, I'm patriotic.
