Ok, I've gone back a few years and it doesn't seem that there is a thread fpr this in the recent past, so I thought it'd be good to start one where you can just post random songs, for no reason other than you want to post them.

I'll kick off -

Children - Joe South

Nice idea, Dalgliesh!

I just heard an Aussie classic from 1969. A very haunting anti-Vietnam War song.

'Rachel'- Russell Morris

Same theme, from the same era. I was listening to it the other night:

"Sky Pilot" by Eric Burdon and The Animals

Another somewhat historical song that's been pretty much forgotten -

Written by Brian Cadd, it's about Ned Kelly - Son of a Simple Man - Jon Blanchfield

And a newer one by a group that's probably been unfairly regarded - All These Things I've Done - The Killers

'Got a Secret' The Pierces

A bit weird but quite catchy.

Amazing storyteller. This one is probably my fave of his, criminally under-rated - A Better Place To Be - Harry Chapin

Ren, always loved that one!

I lived a mere 1km away from the Brasserie Familiale Huyghe where they brew Delirium Tremens strong pale ale, which always brought this one to mind : Delirium Tremens - Christy Moore

Love it, Dalgliesh!

Here's one that made it to n°1 in Ireland the week I got married - Guaglione ~ Perez Prado (but some may know it better as the That ad for "The black Stuff") wink

Why don't they have music videos like that anymore? wink

A minor hit for Robin Jolley (Marshall's Portable Music Machine) in 1973, this is one of those irritatingly catchy songs -

Do You Wanna Boogie - Robin Jolley

The first time I heard this one was actually when I was watching David Armand do an interpretive dance to it! Fell in love with it straight away -

Human - The Killers

Out of tragedy this guy created something beautiful - Tears in Heaven ~ Eric Clapton

Gotta agree with Dalgliesh, ozzz, your "Got a secret" is decidedly ummm ... odd, but quite strangely appealing all the same.

This one. It gets a lot more melodic about one minute in, if you want to skip the opening.

"Beggar in the Morning", from the Barr Brothers.
