Mal’s Music Memory – Songs From The Lucky Country

Hiya team.

Well I tell you I’ve been juggling some songs around trying to decide how to wrap Songs From The Lucky Country, but I’ve gone this way.

One is a massive hit from the late 70’s. The other is a spot of indulgence from 2020

First up it’s John Paul Young’s huge hit Love Is In The Air.

Weee bit of background, the song was written by Ozzie hit writers Harry Vanda and George Young. Both were members of The Easybeats, a top Ozzie band from the 60’s (Friday On My Mind etc).

George’s younger brothers Malcolm and Angus went on to form AC/DC and we all know how big they became.

Sadly both George and Malcolm passed away in 2017.

Second up is Missy Higgins. Maybe not so well known here but certainly a true blue Ozzie.

We’re featuring a current song of hers, Carry You with Tim Minchen. Look out for this song!

Enjoy both, keep ultra warm and what ever you do, call in and see the team at Little Fire MusicWorks and see what’s in their lounge, window display that is.

Cheers

Mal
