I can't imagine a more amazing demonstration of the folk music process at work than the difference between The Easybeats bashing out their subversive Australian working class protest hymn "Friday on my Mind" on TV in 1967 --
-- and this bunch of regular joes having a Down Under living room singalong of the same song for somebody with a camcorder forty years later.
I'm a huge fan of Easybeats auteurs Vanda and Young, as longtime readers are aware, but this is just remarkable. Obviously, the Aussies should just go ahead and make the damn song their national anthem already....
