A funny old week

Written by: 19 September 2015 One Comment

From looking after sick boys and household disasters this week wasn’t the best for listening to music for me… in fact I’d go as far as to say I listened to very little of note.

I did however manage to squeeze in one musical adventure, attending the Silver Scrolls which for a non musician like myself is usually nigh on an impossible feat. Fortunately they’d expanded the evening somewhat as they were celebrating 50 years of awards and thus a few friends of APRA like meself were added into the mix. It was a pretty great night, some wonderful renditions of songs and very deserving recipients of the awards themselves.

One of the awards given was that for the 1981 Silver Scroll which had never been awarded back then. Due to the benefit of living in a very different era the nominees were way different I am sure than those that would have been up for the award back in the day. The winner, The Swingers “Counting The Beat”, possibly would have been nominated though its anyone’s guess as to if it would have been successful. But it was and all these years later its still a great song and has been a personal fave since I first heard it way back then.

The finale of the evening was a performance of the song by Shayne Carter and boy did Shayne rock it

The video captures the song – it also includes the full evening with plenty of other musical highlights but lets focus on this one glorious moment.

Enjoy
