One of my favourite non "Heavy Harmonies" related tracks from the 90s. I don't know what arrangement would be used, but I think the soaring vocals would lend themselves well to a Rock Ballad cover.

Dino Jelusic of "Animal Drive". A recent-ish tribute to Ray Gillen. The original  "Badlands" version is a killer and Dino certainly does it justice. I'm expecting big things from this kid in the futur

For some reason my previous post reminded me of this ( IMHO) great track. I think it's the "pan pipes".     

Mate, that could apply to every Team.

Listening to  soundtrack stuff today. If the "At the Movies" guys decide to do an "80s vol. II" and I think they will based on how popular their first foray into the 80s was, then these two tracks are big contenders hopefully. Not Hard Rock, but certainly what I would consider as AOR.

Still in our "Wheelhouse", but soft enough to benefit from a Hard Rock revamp.

There's also a nice connection between the two.

Everyone's heard Maiden's cover of the Skyhoos song women In Uniform.
Came across this one of Horror Movie, which is also pretty cool.

Yeah, I've been aware of this for a while. Great version. The Red Symons "Red Faces" cameo at the end is genius. I was born in '72, so I was very young when Skyhooks were big, but I certainly remember them. Seeing them on "Countdown", etc. They're a big part of Aussie culture. It's funny that they were considered very cutting edge in those days. It's a shame they ended their legacy with the horrendous "Jukebox in Siberia".

I was lucky to see them support AC/DC, this is when AC/DC came home from first time from England The opening before the Hooks was Split Enz. Jukebox was their first single of their album, which hard to find, for their  only comeback tour. I think they sold out the Laver stadium for three nights running.

Red was on the re run of Specks & Specks on Wednesday night. MMM Myf. 

R.I.P Shirley.

Split Enz, Skyhooks then AC/DC. What a show! You're a lucky man. Shirl is just as memorable from "Shirl's Neighborhood" to me as he is from "Skyhooks". I grew up with that show.

Of course,  the non Aussies here have no idea what we're talking about.

This album for me is in the Hall of Fame. No question. I remember getting this when it first came out and it coincided with the release of cable TV down here. One show that I loved was "Parker Lewis Can't Lose". I remember one party scene where "Shake and Tumble" was playing in the background. I recognized it immediately. 

Around the same time, Roseanne released a straight to video movie co-starring Johnny Galecki called "Backfield in Motion" (Great movie BTW), Which featured "Love of a Lifetime" as it's main finale theme. Again, when I heard it I span out. It's not often we hear "our music" in popular culture. Those were the days. 

I've scoured youtube, but I can't find clips for either.

Yeah, only time got to see them live was Rocktober 84 I think it was.
they headlined a massive lineup.
Remember duwing their set they crossed on the big acreen to Hey Hey It's Saturday.
molly spoke with Shirl and he was booed loudly having recently come out as gay.
Shows how much times have changed.
These days it is more like "nobody cares, stop making it something special,,,"

This popped up in my rotation today and it got me thinking. Apart from the odd George Lynch instrumental, is this the only "Dokken" song without Don singing Lead Vocals?

Listening to the new "Mad Max" album today. It's okay, solid enough. Nothing really stood out for me though. It got me going through Michael Voss's back catalog. It's very rich. He's done some great stuff.

This one popped up on the radio at work today. One of my very favorite of many INXS tracks, though not often heard. It was overwhelmed by all the other monsters on the "KICK" album.

Great track from the new "BLACK SUN" album released today. It's an interesting album. 

I've never heard of "Netta Laurenne" before, but I'll have to investigate.

Just to make it clear for the non Aussies, it was Molly, not Shirley who came out. I know, it's confusing. Although, the fact that Molly was gay wasn't exactly a National secret. 

I think there was more publicity and interest when he removed his hat for the final episode of Countdown.

His hairline is receding all time, his brother has comb over on top of his head.

It was Elton John gave Molly's first hat, he didn't like what was happening to his old mate hair doing.

Molly Meldrum is of course (amongst other things) a very famous St. Kilda supporter like you Doggy. Here's one that you'll like.

Another Aussie "In Joke".

Q: What do Molly Meldrum and the St. Kilda Football Club have in common.

A: They both have trouble staying on top of the ladder.

    • he'll prob be better for my pension tho which is all I really care about 
    • Well, it looks like Trump has basically sanctioned these guys to do what they have to do. They may start wearing uniforms. Brown shirts perhaps?   Whatever the outcome of this election, there's gonna be big trouble. I'm genuinely concerned for you guys living over there. Even after that shamozzle of a debate, I still think Trump's the better choice, but either way you're fucked.
    • Hey, c'mon mate. He said "no offense". 
    • My Mother loved "The Nun's Story". I remember watching it when I was very young.    
    • I think Dan can do it.
    • The whole senile thing is 100% fake news...I have seen him in many interviews and he is fine...does he occasionally say the wrong words, yes but so what, the guy has fought stuttering his entire life so I give him a pass on that...I'm pretty sure Biden has not said that Trump is responsible for all the dead from Covid...what he has said is that if Trump had a plan to combat it instead of acting like it didn't exist earlier in the year then there would be less deaths....comparing him to a man that spews lies and nonsense everytime he opens his mouth...he looks pretty good in that comparison...
    • The one who cant remember his name, rambles on about Trump being the reason all the "people are dead", "Covid being 100 years old" and all the slurring and gibberish he's produced, so we all know who were talking about, except I guess Glenn, but thats cool, i am glad it's tabloid fodder where you are, but over here, that senile fuck will do more damage in a year, then anything Trump has ever done, and it's pretty fucking serious.
    • Not sure how to do so, so just don't answer my question, I guess. (Can you delete threads?) 
    • Yeah I've decided I'm not gonna be ok, so I was on my way to deleting it
