Architecture In Helsinki
played in Finland for the first time not until seven years after they started out. Even musically the six-up-to-eight-piece-combo from Melbourne doesn’t really match with the city famous for Eero Saarinen. Their songs are played with up to twenty instruments at the same time which can become quite messy. Function follows form.
Every Thursday morning before class, my entire school assembled in the hall and did an aerobic workout which was choreographed by 6th grade students. I have a vivid memory of doing star jumps to «Matter of Trust».
The Gaylads covering «Eleanor Rigby».
Every show by The Avalanches in Melbourne in 1997. Pretty much single handedly made me want to be in a band.
Reminds me of friends and deep deep fun.
Perhaps the greatest song of all time. Any song that features Michael McDonald and Michael Jackson singing backing vocals is pretty hard to top!
Soundtrack to what would forever be a sad summer.
I am still searching, it has been almost three years! Please help me find it!
Consequently, I can't listen to it anymore! I think most kids that grew up in Melbourne in my generation had the same thing happen to them with a Dirty Three record.
My earliest musical memory is being naked and covered in mud whilst watching the «Material Girl» video. To this day I am still confused by that.
That is the kind of full stop I am looking for.
This was the soundtrack to about five summers in a row in Australia. It never grew old. It is so dense and so magical that it only gets better with time.
If it wasn't in «Ghost» I would say «Unchained Melody», but it is, so I am going to say «Last Donut Of The Night» by J Dilla. That record destroys me.
So seriously universally infectious. Your fist is in the air by the 1.5 second mark.
The first record I wasn't given as a christmas or birthday present, that I actually saved up my pocket money for was «In Utero». I had to skip «Rape Me» when I was playing it to my mum!
I'd like to say «Moments In Love» but that would be me choosing!
I was so unhealthily obsessed by the series that it stayed my ringtone for like six months.
«Elle» on repeat from 9-10am; then «Avalon» until high noon.
It just floats out of the speakers so effortlessly. The sentiment still gets me every time.
