Advance Australia Fair, by Adam Hills… or Jimmy Barnes, or…

Happy Australia Day, everyone!

Gotta love this. It’s an oldie but a goodie (you can tell because Adam looks about half his current age in this vid!). Much loved Aussie comedian Adam Hills mashes our rather solemn national anthem with a well known Aussie rock song, Jimmy Barnes’s Working Class Man, complete with Barnesy mannerisms. Classic.

For the record here’s a brilliant version of Advance Australia Fair sung by Human Nature and Julie Anthony with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra at the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games Opening Ceremony.

And here is the original video for Barnesy’s Working Class Man.

Enjoy, and have a great Australia Day!

      Cheers, Rita! No worries, I haven’t been posting as much lately anyway. Busy with lots of other stuff that gets in the way. 😉 I like your new blog, by the way! I’m aiming to ramp up the postings again soon! Have a good one. 🙂
