No matter how grumpy my 11-month old daughter gets, there is one thing every hour, on the hour, that makes her smile: the theme song for the news on ABC radio.
The look of delight that crosses Orla’s face when “Majestic Fanfare” (understated name, eh?) fills the speakers is hilarious and stupidly gorgeous. I thought her taste was a bit quirky but when I looked up the song on YouTube it would appear she is not alone in loving it: the full version has been viewed 23,000 times. This is it. Doesn’t it make you want to stand up and put a hand over your heart?
It never fails to amaze me how much music can move a mood. Alt J is my current soundtrack to life – Taro is my favourite song of theirs – but over the years we’ve written about our most beloved music many times, so I thought I’d share our best-read posts on the topic. I hope they bring a gap-toothed smile to your face – though ideally you wouldn’t have porridge stuck to your chin as one little ABC groupie did this morning. Happy Friday!
