Song of the day: Sherbet – "Slipstream"

Yesterday my friend Col (Hi, Col!) rather helpfully reminded me that there’s another Australian song called “Slipstream”. Here ’tis:

Sherbet – “Slipstream (1974)


There are plenty of things I love about Sherbet’s “Slipstream”* – there’s the driving beat, the variety of tempo and mood changes, the vocal melodies, the Mellotron (always good value in a pop song) – but I think the cheekiest is the little nod to “Good Vibrations” (at 0:39). Great stuff.


(*As opposed to “Slipstream” by Appleseed, where I only liked the guitar drone.)
