Best Cold Chisel Songs
I reckon more Australians know the words to this song than know the National Anthem. You also can't imagine a group of drunken party goers erupting in to spontaneous "Advance Australia Fair" but it regularly happens with "Khe Sanh".
Most people would think this was a song for bogans, but perhaps it's only Australians who can understand the deep meaning of the song in correlation to the Vietnam war.
Simply the best song sends chills down my spine when I hear it. I don't know what else to say but it is simply awesome and speaks to every Australian.
I was in love at the time and in the correct location and almost the exact scenario. I can never forget how much I loved that girl whenever I hear this song.
Love this song
Achingly beautiful lyrics, and understated vocals. A classic.
Yep. Might just be the best song written by anyone. Ever. Full stop.
This song evokes Australia and everything intrinsic in being a working class Australian. Sometimes we all need to just... well, **** off... to a place like Bow River for good and forever.
Every Australian needs his/her Bow River.
I like to hear that song
Best Song, Hands Down... Not the one you bust out at the pub, but the best nonetheless.
Such a dreamy lonely feeling rock love song. Emotional!
This is such a good song
One of my go to Cold Chisel songs, fully underrated and a well sung lament full of great beats
Written by Don Walker from the album Breakfast at Sweethearts
Such a funny song yet it has such a deep meaning. So unique.
Best Cold Chisel song ever! In this song Barnsey shows incredible light and shade versatility in his voice and Mossy just shreds his guitar to pieces. An emotionally charged song written by Don Walker as a tribute to their Roadie Alan Dallow Who passed away when his truck crashed on a way to a gig. It was an absolute travesty that this song got almost zero airplay on mainstream radio.
For me, I don't know why this song sums up Cold Chisel completely. Maybe because it is beautifully raw. Maybe because it also has so much energy. But more likely because, like Chisel in general, it is merely written from the heart.
From Circus Animals. While not as popular many other contenders, and while it never charted well, this song is a gem of a tune similar to that of Ita. Great Chorus. Great rocker.
Could never work out why this song was not released as a single. Very catchy!
Greatest song of all time.
Not a Bogan kinda piece. Demonstrates the depth and class those guys had.
