Great project, Nola, and great that you, Adele and Mazzy were included.
When I was in a covers band, we'd often sing Big Yellow Taxi but the one that moved me almost every time I sang it was Redgum's I Was Only 19: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Urtiyp-G6jY.
It had more impact than the more frequently requested Khe Sanh: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dTjvG4WJD_A.
All the best with the event! :)
Thanks Simon. I love both of those songs. I remember seeing Redgum playing 'I Was Only 19' live at Environfest at Samford back in the 80s. I think that song really raised people's awareness of the plight of returning Vietnam veterans. I like Khe Sanh as well, but the Redgum song moves me every time. Great choice.
