No judgment as that has crept into my last music thread. Now come on we all have songs we love that aren’t in are usual I’m so cool playlist.

Hey Zen. San Jose in the 70s and 80s (and a century leading up to that) was a farming community. Fruits and vegatables. Prunes, apricots, grapes, hops, avocados..... it was mostly orchards. It was a little surreal to watch it become Silicon Valley. Now, it is larger and more populated than The City.

Thanx for the link Chook. I didn't have time to check it out last nite but just did. I wonder if the world is getting worse or memories just select toward the gentle?

Yeah its corny but heart stirring. The aussie version imo is "my island home" by warumpi band. But I'm in no way "embarrassed" saying I love that song

This Aussie band mixes Tang with bubbles to conjure up a gooey schweppervescence sound.

Reminds me of solo travels in the Republic. Every night at a local with all my new friends for the night. I wish Aussie pubs were as socially and communally connective in the evening as it is over there.

I'm an old dude. Seeds. Aussie pubs used to be great. But. Pokies and the death of live music, noise complaints, prices, banning of smoking and violence have sterilised aussie pubs

I’m hearing ya. Over there local boys come to play for a couple of pints and all generations come along. I got to say I’m talking 1999. Know idea about now. Hope it’s still the same. Loved the lock ins on a Sunday with a couple of QLD Irish mates who were living in Waterford. Everything closes for religious reasons. Mates said don’t worry. Knock on the door. We get let in and the place is packed. Lot of these joints are basements and 400 years old and there isn’t a window to speak of. No idea of the time of day or night when you’re in there

Agree with most of that but the banning of smoking has been a huge positive.

It's so much better now waking the next morning and not stinking of stale cigarette smoke, and as a non smoker all the passive smoke couldn't have been good.

Argh here's another now this is proper.

You can get away with liking their peak period stuff especially if you mention Brian Wilson and Pet Sounds, blah blah blah, im a cool hipster, but washed up late 80s beach boys is total cringe, yet i still cant help but like it.

That reminds me of one of Tom Cruises best movies, cant remember the name but he was a trickster bar tender with Brian something, the Aussie actor. Its in that video clip a few times, but cant think of the name.
I even bought the soundtrack, it was all time.

Good choice Mick.

Check this doco out Seeds. It’s brilliant. Saw it on the big screen. A great insight to a monumental concert event.

“Three Tenors - From Caracalla to the World”

Fark! I'll leave the above up- I honestly thought that was a Marley track or something but was actually written by UB40. Just looked it up then.

Double embarrassment.

Far out....Starbuck...always cued up the LP edit, but a (Live Version!)
Bonus...(Lyrics)
That's a gift from above! So there really is an Easter Bunny!
Hodads are obliged to share the good gear...

This is a totally embarrassing Easter Treat...singer, lyrics & tune are so silky smooth!
Lyrics are near perfect...in fact the whole composition & performance is next level perfection.

Crew may relate to this tune as 'that track' with the cool 'Xylophone solo'...Yeah! That one!
Did tbb say Xylophone...
Meant to say Marimba...Wot! Vibraphone...Huh! Glockenspiel...hello..Metallophone...you know...Kulintan.
tbb is pretty sure it will go down as memorable Marimba moment.

{ The Midnight Special }

Starbuck : Moonlight Feels Right...crew must have requested this...coz here it is!

Zen, no need to apologise, mate. Standard SN practice

Cunts that know shit..spouting shit

Sorry, if that offends any snowflakes as it were.

You're a good egg, Zen...when you have a think.
