Day 25: US Forces by Midnight Oil
This song needs no introduction. And what a fantastic backdrop for the Oils to perform live in. This one is for all my Felly friends with special mention to Simon (Happy birthday mate), Jodi, Tani, Adrian, Anne, Matt, Fiona and Cathy. Also in loving memory of my best man Jonathan Higgs who was a MASSIVE Oils fan. So much so, he had a Midnight Oil themed 21st where I went dressed from the album cover Head Injuries.
I know at least three of you on this list have photos with the great Peter G. Thanks for the wonderful memories guys. You are such valuable friends.
“US Forces give the nod!“
