The Land Down Under

My friend Miriam, from http://www.miriaminthemidwest.com, is a sweetie. She is also an Australian resident living here. She reminded me recently how much I love Australian artists, from Midnight Juggernauts, Cut Copy and the Presets, the Church ... but these guys and INXS started it all for me as a kid ~ Midnight Oil (also known informally as The Oils to fans) inspired me deeply. Their call to action lyrics, voiced by singer Peter Garrett as he struts his stuff so uniquely in this video, powerful rhythm and driving tempo makes this one of my favorites. Thank you Miriam! I'll be highlighting Australian music this whole week on here!
