1981: Your world is so nice

Mum was making some lamingtons for tomorrow's morning tea, but she wasn't using the oven gloves properly, scorched her fingers and stepped back, only to trip over a Violet Crumble some big galah had left lying about, having been distracted by Denise 'Ding Dong' Drysdale getting her tits out on No.96, or was that Abigail.... and dropped the whole lot on the floor. Anyway we managed to salvage something in time to all sit down for Sons & Daughters. That Patricia, eh?


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.
