A-Z '13 - At First Sight


It's April 1st, meaning that it's time for the A-to-Z blogging challenge of 2013 to begin. At almost the last minute I decided to run through a list of classic Aussie tunes for this year's challenge. Well, they're either classic or just plain songs I like. So without further ado, here's A!

At First Sight - The Stems


The Stems enjoyed their heydey back in the 80s, but they occasionally reunite to show their old fans a good time. This song is an old classic which appeared on the soundtrack for Young Einstein (a fave movie of my bro and I when we were kids).

  4. Great theme. I don't know much about Aussie music past Men at Work, so your posts will be educational and entertaining.

  5. Loved the song! Will have to look for The Stems next time I'm shopping for music. Never heard of them (I'm from Mexico, and you can imagine there wasn't much hype for Australian music there before INXS), but they sound good :) Thanks for the intro! Visiting from the A-Z challenge :)

  14. Great theme. Loved Young Einstein. What a hoot!
    A local tv station just did a 10 worst and 10 best Aussie songs. Somebody I Used to Know was best of course.

    1. Of course that is an amazing song, but it seems weird to have a "best song of all time" that only just came out a year ago or something :P

  16. Hi, Trisha,

    Nice to meet you... Thanks for dropping by my blog yesterday. And, yes, this challenge is a bit overwhelming, but if we take it one day at a time we should survive and hopefully come out with some great new blogger friends!

  17. Hadn't heard of them until now, but I liked it a lot. The video was very Beetlesesque.

  18. Gosh!
    I like the idea of doing it based on aussie music.
    I'd possibly have gone with MGF's All of Them Ladies, Custard's Apartment, Cruel Sea's Anybody But You. But I think my winner would be The Church, Always With You.
