Something on the lunchtime news made me laugh like a drain, today.
It perfectly demonstrates the difference between us British and Australians.
Witney Houston's comback world tour is turning into a bit of a disaster for the old girl. - She just can't sing anymore, after years of sticking that white powder up her hooter. Anyway, they showed footage of the concert, with her sounding like a stabbed cat, and then interviewed people outside, about the performance. Some said it was rubbish and some said it was great. The thing is though, nobody minded that much.
During the Australian part of the tour, the audience demanded their money back!

That's what I love about Aussies. - We applaud politely, and say "That was lovely, dear", and walk away. - Aussies tell it like it is, and get a refund.

Good old Ockers.

Jeff Lynne was known for experimenting with every instrument he could lay hands on. I suspect Olivia Newton John was an experiment too far!

I'm pretty sure that ELO also recorded a version without her, as I have an album of theirs with that song on which all the voices are male (presumably the band). Sounds a lot better!

Come on guys, give the girl a break. (no jokes about roller skates please)

I have to admit I actually quite like that song, without the video of course, but then again it is with ELO who rate in my top ten
