Week 5

18th — 24th of April 2020

Day 35: Da Da Da by Trio

Let’s really go crazy. This is one of our Rebekah’s favourite. Love the guitar player. “I know why you went away. Understand you couldn’t stay.“

Day 29: Torn by Natalie Imbruglia

The next two hits made it big outside Australia. The first one is by Natalie Imbruglia. Finally made it back into the 21st century briefly. I really like the video to this song, it’s clever.
