Which Australian theme

I don't think Morrissey or the Pet Shop Boys are Australian, are they?

Although Morrissey speaking with an Australian accent would be amusing...

The Doug Anthony All Stars (D.A.A.S.) was an Australian comedy band (kind of a precursor to New Zealand's Flight of the Conchords, if anyone knows them). They specialised in very funny but highly offensive original songs, but every now and again they'd come out with something like this beautiful, dark cover of I Heard It Through The Grapevine by The Miracles (later, of course, covered by Marvin Gaye).

Let me know if you like it and I'll post some other covers by D.A.A.S.
oh man i still love DAAS and miss them terribly - have a double DVD (just released last year) of their stuff, and saw em live and have some CDs

do you have ICON by anychance? would love to get a better copy - have tried numerous times to buy one on ebay but hard to get and $$$$

if you want some DAAS stuff PM me

Here's Aussie band Men at Work with their 1979 (reworked in 1982) cover of Kookaburra Sits in the Old Gum Tree. Allegedly.

Re: the cover thread

One of my favourite covers of all time - Quietdrive doing Cyndi Lauper's Time After Time. Not sure why I cant seem to find the original music video.

Re: the cover thread

Ok so continuing the Australian theme...

Here are the Fall in 1991 with White Lightning.
From what I remember Mark E. Smith had just got past his yuppie period (removed his braces, cut off his ponytail) and had gone rockabilly:

Re: the cover thread

This is one of my top favourite songs, it's just so beautiful.. and you need a big voice to sing it and Bryn Terfel's v. is perfect..

Re: the cover thread

This is a bit of a strange case, John Cale took a song by Leonard Cohen called "Hallelujah":



and sung it his own way (just accompanying himself with a piano), creating one of the most beautiful pop songs ever:



then Jeff Buckley, Rufus Wainwright and thousands of other followers came along and instead of singing the original Leonard Cohen song their own way they simply started copying John Cale.

Problem with that is that John Cale never got the credit he deserved.
