Day 30 — Share Your Music: 30 Days, 30 Songs
Ladies and gentlemen, I’ve made it to the end of the 30 Days, 30 Songs challenge. It has been epic. My special thanks go to my friend, Sarah, of Art Expeditions, for hosting the challenge and to all those who contributed their favourite songs. My thanks also go to my readers for the enthusiasm they have shown for my music choices. I have tried to give a balanced representation of the songs that have touched my heart. Not easy to do in the space of 30 songs/tunes.
On the drive home from an outing today, my husband and I got chatting about great concerts we had seen, which then turned into a conversation about the great concert we missed due to a medical emergency (mine). Anyway that concert was a Deborah Conway / Willy Zygier concert. At that moment, I decided my final song choice would be Man Overboard by 80s Aussie rock band, Do Re Mi – with Deborah Conway singing lead vocals.
Man Overboard was co-written by band members: Deborah Conway, Dorland Bray, Helen Carter and Stephen Philip. It is song writing at its gritty best. Man Overboard is about women putting up with men’s shit. Well, that’s how I interpret it.
I’ve included two clips of the song. The first clip tells the story in song and pictures, and has the best sound quality. The second clip includes the lyrics. All I can say is how good were Do Re Mi, and how good is Deborah Conway! Maybe she and her partner, Willy Zygier, will come back to Canberra again. I hope so, otherwise I will never hear the end of it.
The incredibly talented Sarah of Art Expedition has hosted 30 Days, 30 Songs for the month of June. You can see her latest and last post here. Ladies and gentlemen, this is your final opportunity to participate in the challenge. Please join in if you are so inclined.
