I know I listened to Australian bands long before I even thought of the possibility to move to Melbourne. Some decades ago we already listened to Midnight Oil and Men At Work. Not really listening to the things they were trying to convey. Just appreciating the tune and the rhythms.
Like “four seasons in one day” by Crowded House. There’s a saying about Melbourne: “If you don’t like the weather, just wait for 15 minutes”. I guess they know what they’re talking about. Terrific weather in the morning is followed by showers in the afternoon (“arvo”), to be followed by quite a nice evening with a very nice sunset.
But sometimes the weather is just … drab. Gloomy. Dark. More like Europe.
Makes for a nice photo, though …
