I like to read other people's blogs - you learn stuff, dont you?Of the many blogs I read, one in particular, regularly has a Sunday song post. Mainly Italian of what I've seen to date, but recently I found a clip of the Beatles singing Paperback Writer in Italian.
Not that long ago Sue and I were shopping locally when we heard this music in the food shop that sold mostly Italian specialties. I asked what was playing and they explained that it was an internet radio station.
I have in my collection of CDs several french artists that i've discovered on our travels in france and a couple of Italian cds.
With some encouragement from our fellow blogger LLM, we will post a Saturday song from now on, mostly Australian and maybe some favourite overseas artists, possibly singing Australian songwriters songs.
When I was a young boy (how sad) we would go to the local music venues in Melbourne in the city. It was a great music scene in Melbourne in the 60s. We were growing up in a new explosion of music from England and because of our influx of immigration, the teenagers from the UK were bringing their music to Australia.
Three bands that emerged from UK immigrants that come to mind are the Easybeats (Friday on my mind), the Bee Bees and AC DC. I thought we might post a You Tube of each tonight.
The Easybeats - I saw this band in my teenage years around Melbourne.
They were full of energy.
The Bee Gees - I never saw them live but as kids, we watched them on Aussie TV.
AC DC - again a band full of energy. While riding through the streets of San Fransico in 79' I saw graffitti of the band's name on walls.
Tina Arena - she's a favourite of mine, a very talented lady whom started as a young child on Australian television. A very Melbourne child and proud of it regardless of her international fame.
Hope you enjoy a bit of Aussie music.
Let me know if you have any Aussie artists you like?
