A-Z '13 - Highway to Hell & Hang Around


UPDATE 10/4/13: I had to edit this post to add a second video, because really, H had to be a tie. I had totally forgotten somehow that I'd already picked out an "H" song, and it happens to be by one of my favourite Aus bands of all time, Tumbleweed. Plus, the video is so worth seeing - it features a giant chicken-zilla! So while I love "Highway to Hell", it can't be alone in the H-spotlight! ;)


Hang Around Tumbleweed




During April a bunch of bloggers are participating in the A-to-Z blogging challenge of 2013. My theme for 2013 is an A-to-Z list of classic Aussie tunes - either classic or just plain songs I like. Today we're up to the letter "H" and for my H song I've chosen:

Highway to Hell - AC/DC

AC/DC are the obvious choice for a whole lot of A to Z letters, but this is definitely one of my favourite tunes by them, even if I have only ever done a cover song version of "Thunderstruck". ;) "Highway to Hell" was great already, but nowadays it has the added bonus of reminding me of one of my favourite shows ever, Supernatural (hubba hubba). Anyway, there were a lot of great songs in my "H" selection, though it got whittled down by which had available videos):

  14. AC/DC rock!
    I remember Home and Away! I used to watch it in Turkey in summers, because it was subtitled - so I could just listen in English when I missed English tv!

  15. No Harpoon? I STILL need to get my hands on the SFK song.
    But i'd have gone with James Reyne, Hammerhead.
