Songs Of My Life #33 - The Takeaways - Sweet & Sour - 1984
Songs Of My Life #33.
Growing up in the 1980's, there were two shows on TV that I watched that really fanned the flames of me wanting to start a band or be in a band. One was the kids TV show called Pugwall on Channel 9 on weekday afternoons (it's actually on YouTube if you want to check it out - pretty daggy then and much the same now). The other was Sweet & Sour on the ABC on Wednesday nights. It was David Reyne's launch of his acting/hosting career, while Tracey Mann and Arky Michael went on to bigger things.
The song is... well... very 80's, but it reminds me of those days watching and dreaming of maybe one day doing music myself.
