I decided to go all out aussie style and give you nothing but Australian talent (I admit, for the benefit of Kiwi readers, that some of our best talent came from New Zealand ) .
The first two are not particularly favourites of mine but obviously are about early life
Jimmy Little – Australia, Down Under
Brian Cadd and Glenn Shorrock – Little ray of sunshine
then two serious hunks from my teen years
Dragon – Are you old enough?
Billy Thorpe – Almost Summer (yes he’s making another appearance for those of you who caught him in a recent post!)
John Farnham fits in with parenthood – when I was at high school it wasn’t cool to sing along to Johnny but as I got older I realised what a star he is..and in fact I could do my whole life in his songs!
John Farnham – Age of reason (some Australian scenery in film clip)
marriage breakup…and Crowded House breaks up ! Live from their ‘Farewell to the World’ concert on the steps of the Sydney Opera House
Crowded House – Better be home soon
the future ? I hope love…sunsets over beaches…and maybes..
Hunters & Collectors – Throw your arms around me
Powderfinger with Missy Higgins – Sunsets (filmed on steps of Opera House)
Wave your hands in the air (or just leave me a comment) if you’ve heard of any of these bands/singers??
