What's wrong with that?

Beautiful version of "Wonderful Tonight". If you've only ever heard the familiar studio version, you're in for a treat about 2/3rds of the way into it.

This song "Million reasons" is beautiful, and was the song that daughter did one of her dances with the dance company last year on stage, so graceful and eloquent. Daughter is on the left hand side in both pictures.

What the fuck is Bradley Cooper doing thinking he can sing. He can't. He should stick to acting, at least that way he might get good at it. if he spreads his wings to far he'll be shit at everything he does.


Oh no! :? Don't tell me the film is crap....I'm still going to go see it anyway. I will put up a different song I love from Lady Gaga.

ps......I don't ever have the radio on, not even when driving. Everyone else does in the family but me!! :roll

Some very controversial well known photos there. Truly the picture tells a thousand words. How brave the photographers to do what they did.

Re: Cold Chisel, very famous Australian band, and lead singer, famous Aussie legend, Jimmy Barnes!
Here is a vid to one of his most famous songs "Working class man" one from earlier in his life, and then later as he ages with the rest of us. :bgrin He has a raspy gutsiness to his style of singing.

I might have to google more of their songs to see if I recognize any, jeepers, 1978, and I can't recall them! :? Unless I was too busy working 6 days a week at that time, and no time for anything, travelled 3 hours a day total, to the city and back, get home late and exhausted, and cook, tidy up, ready for next early day. Seems I must have a bit of a blackout period for some songs, as it happened in the 1980's also, when the babies came along, it's like a blank period with music in the early 80's. Didn't have much time for myself, but now, I can do some catching up of those gap years :thumb like new music to my ears. :bgrin


There's not much on Youtube but the link i gave is to their biggest hit. I'd be stunned if you didn't know it.

For some reason (Monk!), i couldn't post it as a youtube and had to post it as a hyperlink.

Australian Group Cold Chisel ~ Khe Sanh
This song had a special place in an online friend I had, he passed away suddenly earlier this year, but Jim, was drafted to the Vietnam war at the tender age of 18, and met a Aussie, fighting along side him, and they soon became best mates.
Jim always had a place in his heart for this song, dedicated to his aussie mate, whom sadly, died at war.
I hope they are reunited in mateship in the big blue yonder. RIP Jim, and this song is for you.





I left my heart to the sappers round Khe Sanh
And the soul was sold with my cigarettes to the black market man
I've had the Vietnam cold turkey
From the ocean to the Silver City
And it's only other vets could understand

About the long forgotten dockside guarantees
How there were no V-day heroes in nineteen seventy-three
How we sailed into Sydney Harbor
Saw an old friend but couldn't kiss her
She was lined, and I was home to the lucky land

And she was like so many more from that time on
Their lives were all so empty, till they found their chosen one
And their legs were often open
But their minds were always closed
And their hearts were held in fast suburban chains
And the legal pads were yellow, hours long, pay packet lean
And the telex writers clattered where the gunships once had been
Car parks made me jumpy
And I never stopped the dreams
Or the growing need for speed and Novocaine

So I worked across the country end to end
Tried to find a place to settle down, where my mixed up life could mend
Held a job on an oil-rig
Flying choppers when I could
Oh but the nightlife nearly drove me round the bend

And I've travelled round the world from year to year
And each one found me aimless, one more year the more for wear
And I've been back to South East Asia
But the answer sure ain't there
But I'm drifting north, to check things out again, yeah I am

Well the last plane out of Sydney's almost gone
And only seven flying hours, and I'll be landing in Hong Kong
There ain't nothing like the kisses
From a jaded Chinese princess
I'm gonna hit some Hong Kong mattress all night long

Well the last plane out of Sydney's almost gone
You know the last plane out of Sydney's almost gone
And it's really got me worried
I'm goin' nowhere and I'm in a hurry
And the last plane out of Sydney's almost gone

Well the last plane out of Sydney's almost gone
You know the last plane out of Sydney's almost gone
And it's really got me worried
I'm goin' nowhere and I'm in a hurry
You know the last plane out of Sydney's almost gone

Vietnam war songs.




Oh wow, now I remember this from Woodstock!! My previous avatar, I had the flower power influence me, and wore headband with Woodstock badge. All from these times and these songs.

"..and it's one, two, three....what are we waiting for....well I don't give a damn, next stop is Vietnam....."

Glad you liked them. Yes, that second one really gets to me too. My son has deployed four times, twice since he's been married. He is stateside right now.


Good to hear he is doing okay, I would imagine one gets cleverer the longer one stays in a war situation, for survival instincts to truly kick in. Well hope so anyway.

I recall a lot of songs about Vietnam back in my teens, that had an effect also and told it like it was. Will google now to see if I can find some.
