Runaway - Del Shannon

Not Drowning, Waving

Here's a song from Melbourne group, Not Drowning, Waving.

Starship Edelweiss - Edelweiss

I wouldn't have known of this song, except that a friend in Germany sent me the CD Single when it was a hit over there.

The plot of the video appears to go along the lines of "I've had a great idea, let's take billions of deutschmarks work of equipment into the darkest regions of space and have a bloody good piss-up with the Klingons".

"If only I'd thought of that" thinks Kirk.

Walter Werzowa from Edelweiss wrote the famous Intel ID tune.


Wolves can Yodel too so therefore I present Melinda Schneider as Audio Murphy in 1994s "Tighten up your pants", Sorry about video quality, pixel-o-rama... oh well.

Deborah Conway - It's only the beginning

This happened over Christmas when people should be celebrating and not hurting people.

Connie Mitchell of Sneaky Sound System was hit in the face by a water bottle thrown from the audience while performing in Western Australia.

What disturbs me are that some music goers believe that the bands apparent mime act, true or not, was worse than almost taking some poor persons eye out with a bottle.

Here's a video of the horrific moment.

Tainted Love - Gloria Jones

The original "Tainted Love" from 1964 by Gloria Jones.

The Partridge family's hit "I think I love you" was picked up, polished off and re-released by Voice of the Beehive in the early 90s, Great work ladies.


When writing Rockit, I find what really helps me is if I come up with an idea for a category. After that I can just race through the writing as the ideas for questions come easily. So if you have an idea for a round, drop me a line, it will help a lot. Thankyou!

Hole in my Shoe

Hole in My Shoe was a trippy, Hippy song by Traffic, A group composed of Dave Mason Jim Capaldi, Chris Wood and Steve Winwood. The song was originally released in 1967. In 1984 Neil Pye (Nigel Planer) of The Young Ones released this version. Strangely enough, both versions stopped short of the number one spot on the charts, making it to "two".
