I was way outside this song's target age group when it was released back in 2004, and my demographic profile hasn't improved any since then.

But shit, what a great song, and this girl could really sing.

I always thought AC/DC had the wildest concert audiences.

But check out these crazy Scots when the Proclaimers hit the chorus of I'm Gonna Be 500 Miles.

Just nuts.

Change of pace in the brew shed! Ode to the eighties, Sweet Jane cover by the Cowboy Junkies. Lou Reed on hearing this cover commented that it was originally written to be played slow.

Mrs Brown, You’ve Got A Lovely Daughter, by Herman’s Hermits, the song that knocked Elvis out of No. 1 spot in the US charts in 1965.

This is in tribute to the man who wrote the song, Trevor Peacock, who died last month in England at age 89.

Peacock is perhaps best known as the actor who played Jim Trott in the comedy series The Vicar of Dilby (“...no, no, no, no, no, no, yes”). An obituary can be found here: https://www.independent.co.uk/news/...y-jim-trott-the-vicar-of-dibley-b1819640.html

Rest in peace, Mr Peacock.

I heard on the radio this morning that it’s only 100 days until the start of the 2021 Tokyo Olympics. And all morning I’ve had Sting singing the song Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic bouncing around inside my head. But why? And then I remembered.

Back in the 1980s Melbourne TV station Channel 7 compiled video clips of female gymnasts performing and synced them to the above song (and some of the edits are just spot on - and it wasn’t easy back then with the video editing gear of the time). The video was often played at the start of broadcasts and as a filler in-between events, and in particular it showed clips of the ‘perfect 10’ gymnast the young Nadia Comăneci of Romania.

So I went looking for the old gymnast clip on YouTube, and found it - at least a later version of it with updated clips. It was put together when Australian TV networks led the world in innovative videography and editing (remember Channel 9’s early Stump Cam and Helmet Cam used in cricket broadcasts, and the in-car RaceCam in motor racing).

It was a great song too!
