Welcome to my regular Friday song/tune day, ladies and gentlemen, where I pick a piece of music that reflects my mood or the times, to share with you.

In the national parliament of Australia, much of the debate that the public gets to see appears to be focussed purely on political point scoring. Often people who are the subject of this political point scoring don’t get to explain themselves before the shouty ones pile on them (also known as bullying). Christine Holgate, ex-CEO of Australia Post, and the many Aussies restricted from returning home from overseas, have being saying exactly that recently. Next, those same shouty people will be demanding banks and financial institutions invest in fossil fuel projects. Crazy, right?

Anyway, my song choice for today is from Australian singer/songwriter, Thelma Plum. It is called “Don’t Let A Good Girl Down”. Enjoy.

Isn’t she great?

Kind Regards.

  1. As I was listening to “Icky” by Thelma Plum, I was reminded of Julia Gillard’s speech on “Misogyny”! Her speech was excoriating! Also her speech is divine and her style writing riveting. I know next to nothing about her politics but she can write.
    I enjoyed “Icky” very much. Thank you Tracy!
    My YouTube suggestion is “Freefloating Anxiety” by Nancy White.

    1. As our first female PM, Julia Gillard was admired by many Aussie women and hopefully many men too. She was a decent, clever woman. Not perfect, and therefore judged more harshly than a man would have been in the same position.
      Many of Thelma Plum’s songs are very autobiographical in nature. She is very talented.
      That Nancy White song made me chuckle. Very relatable .


  2. There’s definitely too much ikiness around and more merges daily. ‘ Centre Of National Resilience’ must surely qualify.
