Of course none of this happened to me, but do you think there's someone in Australia keeping a similar autobiographical blog who it did happen to, with the songs that remind them of stuff that happened to them? I'd like to think so and, if so, I'd love to see it. It's the bizarro me, somewhere out there. And what about my Dutch, French, Russian, Malayasian, Canadian, American counterparts? Must be doing it somewhere.
In the meantime, while I gather my thoughts and move onto the next stage of this blog that will hopefully be moving into the work years (seeing as I've mined my teens and twenties almost to death), here's a wonderful song that frankly was way ahead of its time, seeing as it was released in 1981 - sounds late Eighties to me. It's Mondo Rock, with Cool World. Love this video.
And for good measure, let's throw in the lead singer's wife's solo earworm from 1986 (which had got Nicole Kidman in it, fact fans). Once heard, never forgotten.
