I haven’t done a music post for a while so I thought I would share another 80′s Aussie classic with you.
It is likely you Australians are fans of Paul Kelly so feel free to share your favourite of his many songs in the comments
This song, Leaps and Bounds from 1986, isn’t my favourite of his but with so many great ones to choose from his extensive song list I probably couldn’t pick which one really is!
I love this song for its Melbourne-ness, and each time we are at the Hoddle Street intersection heading home from the city I look across at the distant Nylex clock and this song (and this film clip, with the band perched on the top of the silo) goes through my head.
I’m high on the hill, looking over the bridge, to the MCG
and way up on high the clock on the silo says 11 degrees
I wonder how different the view is from up there now?
