So this song is an Aussie classic...and boy has it been covered a shit load I just picked a few...but because lots of you probably aren't Gunna have heard it before or know the original I'm not Gunna tell ya until to poll is over...although I think one of the covers says it's a cover...number 1 is to listen to them for which version is best...number 2 is seeing if you can pick the original and number 3 is never say her name...

 

Your versions are:

1. Katie Noonan...

 

2. Cold Chisel...

 

3. Sarah Blasko

 

4. The Idea of North...

 

5. Keith Urban

The song did nothing for me until I heard, The Idea of North.

Then I could appreciate the melody.

Interesting @Sazerac ...not the original but my favourite cover of the ones above. Thanks for posting a working Sarah Blasko.

 

This song and one of its covers are what inspired this idea as all those months ago.

The 'beauty' of this song is the story...boy leaves town, boy comes home, boy catches up with his mates, nothing's changed but everything had changed.
