Song of the day: The Wellingtons – "Under The Power Of A Girl"

November 9, 2012

After yesterday’s lengthy album review, I thought I’d spare you another overlong post (although there is one coming up – all I have to do is finish it) and play you something quick ‘n’ easy.

Here’s my favourite Australian power pop band The Wellingtons with a song from their latest EP, Hey Hey:

Song of the day: The Wellingtons – "No One Ever Calls Me Baby"

August 15, 2012

It’s been quite a while since I last played you a song by The Wellingtons.*

Here they are with a typical (i.e., good power pop) song of theirs:

(*To which the band might respond with either: 1. “Yeah, blogger – what’s the deal? You play Australian power pop on your blog but you haven’t played us in ages. What’s going on?”; or 2. “Phew! We sure are glad that idiot blogger has finally stopped giving away our songs on his blog.”)


Song of the day: The Wellingtons – "Your Love Keeps Bringing Me Down"

May 25, 2012

I haven’t played you a song by The Wellingtons in quite a while. I don’t know what I was (not) thinking, omitting some prime Australian power pop on an Australian power pop blog.

OK, I’ll play you a song from their latest album, In Transit. But which one? They’re all worth playing. Hmm.

(Note to self: Pick a song, Peter, any song. Stop holding people up. They’ve come here to listen to some decent music, and they can’t because you’re taking too long deciding which song to play. JUST PICK ONE.)

Er, here’s a song by The Wellingtons:

Song of the day: The Wellingtons – "I’m Feeling The Same Way"

February 22, 2012

I’ve only just noticed that I haven’t played you a song by The Wellingtons recently. To redress this dreadful iniquity, here are The Wellingtons with a song from their latest elpee:

Song of the day: The Wellingtons – "A Christmas Toast"

December 20, 2011

Just in time for Christmas (or maybe it’s late from last Christmas), here are Australia’s globe-trotting power poppers The Wellingtons with a Yuletide ditty for y’all:

The Wellingtons – “A Christmas Toast (2011)

Christmas toast:

More Christmas toast:

Not Christmas toast, but it does involve toast (and a stoat):

As a bonus, here are The Wellingtons teaming up with Japanese techno duo Paraele Stripes for a dance-floor version of “Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer“:

Song of the day: The Wellingtons – "Adamant"

November 10, 2011

Here are The Wellingtons with a whole heap o’ harmonies, a veritable walloping o’ “woohoo”s, and a tried-and-true chord progression (when something works, it works):

The Wellingtons – “Adamant” (2011)

Link

I must admit that throughout most of the song I keep thinking Zac (the singing Wellington) is stating quite emphatically that he’s Adam Ant. (“I’m Adam Ant!”) Or maybe he’s saying that he’s Atom Ant. But I’m pretty sure he’s not claiming to be Adam Adamant:

That would be silly.

I’m not entirely sure that today’s coincidence is actually coincidental, because it sounds to me like it may have been deliberate.

Here are The Wellingtons with the start of song from their latest album, In Transit:

And here’s something very familiar to a few million music fans:
