It reminds me of Australian hot summer nights, teenage angst and high school crushes.
Going through the roller coaster of that first love and the passion and heartbreak that goes with it.
It's special to me because it is written about Grafton, NSW and i am from the region. It puts you in the best mood and is an awesome Aussie rock song . I believe The Ultimate "Great Australian Rock Song", is Men At Work, Down Under. Whilst travelling overseas and this song comes on everyone starts singing and dancing in the street.
Also, the first concert I ever attended was Cold Chisel in Coffs Harbour during their reunion tour in 2011. I remember my dad dancing crazily around the living room when I was a kid to this song I have so many favourite Aussie rock songs...we have so much talent in Australia. "Solid rock.....standing on sacred ground, living on ...borrowed time ..... Grew up with this classic, and have seen the highs of Down Under and the lows - being compared to Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree (just dont see that), and it lead to the demise of the group members.
Have to go with THE ANGLES - AM I EVER GUNNA SEE YOUR FACE AGAIN.
It was one of my father's old favourites I grew up listening to it through out my childhood and still do to this very day.
That song sounds and feels like a warm 1970s summer day, and brings back happy memories of carefree days, with Uncle Alan asking, "If you hate the music so much, why do you keep singing along to the song?
Some gave their lives, others had their lives ruined. It was amazing and the vibe and atmosphere of the event memorable. Eagle Rock brings back amazing memories of lazy Sunday afternoons at Fishermans Wharf on the Gold Coast.
