Day six favourite song – US Forces

So many great and meaningful songs from this wonderful Australian band, Midnight Oil. Perhaps I have more favourite songs, and from this band too, yet this song encapsulates one of my most memorable musical moments from my earlier life.

Imagine. Crowded in an old music venue in St Kilda, the lights are down, the tension builds. Just waiting. For the show to begin. And then its starts.

US Forces give the nod
It’s a setback for your country

The lights come on. The crowd is jumping, literally. The wooden floor heaves under the strain. What an impact, what a show.
