"I've never heard of Johnny Farnham"

Our fearless leader has inflamed Australians with bad taste in music by "banning" John Farnham from this year's ANZAC commemorations in Gallipoli. Tim and Neil Finn will not be playing there either, but this has not stopped some Australians taking this as a personal affront to their popular culture. Although this decision has apparently been made because of the solemnity of the occassion, this is a gift to our redneck cousins, the gift of 21st century culture. Move forward Australia, the 1980s are over now.

Would anyone have objected to Rolf Harris? I mean... his Sunarise is seriously under-rated.

i think she has actually heard farnham. but, like many others has repressed trauma on account of high-rotation songs such as 'the voice' that did the rounds in the eighties.
maybe she'd remember the mullet if she saw a picture.

She probably bought that old single... can't remember what it's called, Barnsie & Farnsie together....

So was Kylie not an option?
