A-Z '13 - Quasimodo's Dream


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's letter is "Q", and it's a day of slim pickings in terms of songs to choose from. I still found a few goodies, though, and the song I'm featuring is:

Quasimodo's Dream - The Reels


In truth I only recently realised that this song is by the Reels (you and I can both learn more about the song here). I'm sure I did know at some point, but the passing years took the knowledge away from me. See, the version I know best is a cover by Kate Ceberano which appeared in her album Brave (I can't find a good version of that cover, but here is a really bad version). But we were talking about the Reels, right? Here I must confess that I'm fairly certain I only know two of their songs, this one and "This Guy's In Love". And yet they're pretty legendary in terms of Australian music, so I should totally know more about them! Never too late, I guess. ;)

  3. You know more than I do because this is the first I've heard of them. It's fun learning about all the Australian groups!

  4. Trisha,
    I must be living under a rock of something. I don't know any of the songs on the page. :(

  5. Interesting song and video. It's creepy in places, though.

    Good luck with the rest of the challenge.

  6. I love music but I have to admit not being all that familiar with Australian music. The song had a nice tune, very upbeat.

  14. Q is tough.
    I'd probably have gone with the guru's Quicksand, mostly due to a lack of being able to think of any others.
