Song of the day: Marcia Hines – "(Until) Your Love Broke Through"

Although this song has already appeared here as part of a previous Musical coincidence, I wanted to highlight it because I think it’s one of the loveliest pop ballads to have come out of Australia in the 70’s.

Before Marcia Hines became the “everyone’s great!” judge* on Australian Idol she was a pop queen. (A real one: Marcia was crowned Queen of Pop in Australia three years in a row from 1976-1978.)

Anyway, here’s Marcia with the ineffable “(Until) Your Love Broke Through” (1976):

For me, especially in the chorus, a pop ballad doesn’t get much better than that. As a bonus, here’s the original version:

Keith Green – “Your Love Broke Through” (1977)

By the way, you can read more about the song (if you’re keen enough) on the Musical coincidence page that originally featured it.

(*Like Paula Abdul on American Idol.)
