Help - what's this song? by JF on 22 June 2005 1:19pm
 
When I was on my travels a few years back one of the Aussies in the group had a song whcih I have (very) partly remembered and it's driving me mad.

Male singer, acoustic guitar (IIRC), live performance, lyrics about meeting so-and-so in such-and-such a place and about every bloody place looking the bloody same after a while. Or something like that.

Anyone got any ideas?

When you said about 'all the same' it made me think of 'Little Boxes made of ticky-tacky' but I don't think it's that one??!!

That's what I thought Anne. If so, I think it was either performed or written by Pete Seger. ('Scuse spelling)
Linz.

Oh no, it's definitely not a Pete Seeger type of song. Other end of the spectrum and I think you can substitute a more common expletive for "bloody".

Chap singing was probably an Aussie.

That's easy. Rolf Harris.

If I knew the lyrics I'd google them.

As far as I can gather from your description the artist is Paul Kelly and the song 'Every Fu#king city looks the same'
Try http://www.paulkelly.com.au/lyrics
