OZTOBER Rules!

I Wonder If You''ll Even Know These

OZTOBER Rules!

We know you are loving Oztober already on Triple M but wait 'til you hear what's to come!

Over the next few weeks I'll be highlighting some of my all time favourite Aussie songs, knowing full well that you will more than likely not even know or remember them.

Here goes.............in no particular order

 

This is a beautiful lyric and I was torn between this original version or the Debbie Byrne version from the soundtrack to the Aussie film Rebel. Ray Barrett played the piano in the scene, see if you can find it.

 

So much from Icehouse but this one I LOVE. I also kind of won a bet with Iva Davies that he'd open the set at Oz Rock in Busselton a few years ago with this. Very dramatic, a ripper show opener.

 

The first time I heard this Matt Taylor's voice hit me like a rasp across your finger nails.

  

 

These guys came from Tassie and had little success in Aust despite some huge publicity and some big names on their side. Glen A Baker said rock historian said "Perhaps the greatest power-pop band in the whole world since the demise of the Raspberries")

They did a bit overseas, especially in Germany and the US. 

What's not to love about Young Normie?

 

 

More to come............
