Song of the day: Skyhooks – "Whatever Happened To The Revolution?"

A few days ago, Living In The 70’s, the 1974 debut album by Skyhooks, was inducted into Australia’s National Film & Sound Archive for posterity, as it was deemed culturally important – or, as they put it: “…to immortalise iconic sound recordings that form a part of our history.”

The album is now a museum piece.

I’m happy to visit a museum with this in it:

You can hear more about the album’s entry into perpetuity on this ABC News page. It mentions that six out of the album’s 10 songs were banned from radio airplay when it was released. Here’s one of the banned songs:

Skyhooks – “You Just Like Me ‘Cos I’m Good In Bed” (1974)

Incidentally, The Seekers’ “I’ll Never Find Another You” was also inducted into the Archive – and that’s more than alright by me.
