This is....My favourite band of all time.

One Hit Wonders.

I saw these guys perform in Martin Place Ampitheatre in the early 90's on my lunch break and fell in love. They are a Sydney Covers band who play various one hit wonders - some of my favourites are -
My Sharona -The Knack
Turning Japanese - The Vapours
Tainted Love - Soft Cell
Come on Eileen - Dexy's Midnight Runners
I Love Rock & Roll - Joan Jett & The Blackhearts
What I like about you - The Romantics
500 Miles - The Proclaimers
I want your love - Transvision Vamp
The Impression that I get - The Mighty Bossstones
Video Killed the Radio Star - The Buggles
Black Betty - Ram Jam

To be honest though I have only seen this band play twice - one in the city and the second time a few years ago accidentally on a night out with the hubby but all the same they are great and play great music.

I have never been one to develop a strong commitment to a band/musician/genre and instead am happy to listen to a variety of music as long as I like the sound. My taste in music has changed and changes depending on my lifestyle and whats on around me at the time and I have to say that Top 40 hits have generally always been my general listening habits as they are familiar due to commercialism. Some music from the past I still enjoy like the above mentioned and more and some music which I loved growing up makes me cringe and recall crazy times in my life which I would rather forget about.

Thanks to CurlyPops for thinking of this weeks This Is theme, challenging me to think about my past.
