  1. well that is quite a change for DAAS, having just listened to "I Fuck Dogs". Paul does have the most amazing voice, really lovely.

    1. Linda Sue; you listened to what?? Is that a real song? Paul does have a lovely voice and the three of them together make nice music.

  3. A sweet performance. Because they are known for comedy, I wasn't expecting that.

    1. Andrew; did you ever watch Good News Week when it was on the ABC? It was one of our favourite shows until it went to a commercial channel and got ruined.

  7. The first thing I noticed was than most lines start with the word 'and'. I found that odd.

    1. MMM; I'm glad you liked it, the sound is very easy to listen to.

  13. Well, that was rather lovely. I'd never heard of Doug Anthony All Stars so had to look them up. They are not well known in the UK. I've listened to them a few times on Youtube now - not only melodic but hilarious too!

  14. I’m late to the party, but I’ll throw in my two bobs’ worth anyway.
    I’ve always liked the Dougs, from The Big Gig to DAAS Kapital. Like you, I liked the ABC version of Good News Week. I watched the commercial one through gritted teeth. Also, we’ll forget that rather inane quiz that Paul hosted.
    Paul has a wonderful singing voice, but he’s been rather reticent to show that. That clip is one of his best.
    Of course, we should remember Mark Seymour’s several terrific versions, as well as the Hunters’ original.
