Sunday Session - Remember this one?

Last week, when I was desperately trying to find a way to stay motivated to write my reports, I rediscovered this song and then proceeded to play it over and over to entertain me. It is such a happy toon, I had to share it. I wonder if you remember it from ABC viewings circa mid-seventies?

(For trivia fans, the vocals are by Ronnie James Dio, lead singer of heavy metal band, Black Sabbath!)

Nik Kershaw

Due to a busy weekend of paperwork, Sunday Session is now on a Tuesday for me.

After looking at Thea's Nik Kershaw clip, I wondered what this fave singer from the eighties had been up to lately and my word, has he changed.

Barely recognisable and totally NOT eighties anymore! I had to share the original version of Wouldn't it be Good, because this song rocks, and then I thought I would share him singing it in 2008.


2008 (That's 24 years later!):

And if you're still loving this song, I also found a version of it by Placebo, and even though they totally milk the emo message, that guitar riff never loses its appeal.

And, while I'm on a roll, I'm sharing a song from Nik Kershaw's recent album. Pretty melody, no clip yet, nice to listen to.

See you next week!

I'm still here!

Sorry I've been AWOL lately! I've been throwing myself into my new Mobile Bookshop venture, which some of you already know about. I've been planning, and training, and making phonecalls and sending emails like anything, to get it all happening. It's very exciting!

Also there were a couple of weeks there where our internet service was struggling with the amount of gaming and Youtubing that Jack does, and sometimes I just could not even load my own blog! That is all sorted now, so I am back!

I'm playing along with Thea's Sunday Session, because I love revisiting old songs.

This week the theme is siblings. My first thought was Nick and Mark Seymour, then I thought of the Jonas Brothers, but I wanted to choose a band that is a little more obscure. So I've chosen Ella and Jesse Hooper, who used to be in a band called Killing Heidi, and are now in a band called Verses. I adore Ella, and she was 16 when they released Weir, which was a huge hit on Triple J.

This next one has a great Aussie clip - very cool.

Love Dan Sultan's voice!
