In 1977, the Australian Flash & the Pan released the single Hey St. Peter. They were formed by two members of the Easybeats, George Young and Harry Vanda. As the Easybeats split up in 1969, they started writing songs for artists like John Paul Young and AC/DC. With Hey, St. Peter, they had their first hit as Flash & the Pan, namely number 5 in Australia. Enjoy

Song of the day: Sheppard- Geronimo

A new Australian band, which clearly stated they were there with their first single. Geronimo was number 1 in Australia, and almost reached the US charts. The song was inspired by a very famous Apache leader, namely Geronimo, who shouted out his name before he did something courageous. I think it’s a great song and we probably will hear more of the band in the future! Enjoy

Song of the day: Midnight Oil- Beds Are Burning

Hey there,

I’m looking out of my window and guess what? Yes, it’s snowing again.
Although it is snowing, I will not put in a summer song. I really want something more like rock.
And I have found some record which I came across in December last year, but which is really great.

Let me introduce you: Midnight Oil with Beds Are Burning.

The song is a protestsong, and its goal was to give land back to the Pintupi, Aboriginals in Australia who used to travel around in the desert.

Well, with this song, at least I can stand the snow some better. Tomorrow a new song!
