SPECIAL INTERVIEW: John Adams

THEAUSSIEWORD.COM meets UK singer/songwriter John Adams.

How and where did it all begin for you? What drew your interest to the music industry?
Unfortunately music wasn’t a part of my childhood. I was very much raised with the motto “Get good grades and you’ll get a good job”, so all my focus was on education. I did well in school and it wasn’t until I became a Math’s teacher that I started to realise that a “good job” wasn’t the key to my happiness. As I slipped deeper into the 9 to 5 with less and less time to do what I enjoyed I became more and more disheartened. I’d always enjoyed music as a past time and I started busking for a break from my profession. The response I had to performing was so inspiring and quickly allowed me to resign. It felt like such a crazy gamble but I knew I needed a change. It was hard to give up on so many years of training but easy all that the same time. No regrets so far!

SPECIAL INTERVIEW: Modern Love Child

THEAUSSIEWORD.COM catches up with Modern Love Child.

How and where did it all begin for you? What drew your interest to the music industry?

I was 8 years old. I wanted to impress the girl who was living next door to me, I had a huge crush on her, so I wrote her a song and sang it for her. She gave me my first kiss, so I stuck with it.

What motivates or influences you in your quest to make great music?

Everything and anything beautiful and honest. What motivates me comes from something burning inside, I’m lucky that music really affects me the way it does. Continue reading SPECIAL INTERVIEW: Modern Love Child

NEW MUSIC: Wang Chung – ‘Dance Hall Days’ Orchestral Version 2019

Wang Chung came out of the post-punk, New Wave scene in the UK going on to achieve global success, selling millions of records. Throughout their 35 year career they have released 6 albums and 2 Greatest Hits compilations. They have had 6 US Top 40 hits including a number 1 and other international smash hits including ‘Dance Hall Days’ and ‘Let’s Go’, and achieved cult status with their soundtrack for William Friedkin’s movie ‘To Live and Die in LA’, as well as their original song contribution to John Hughes’ legendary movie, The Breakfast Club. In the process of all of this (and somewhat unintentionally), Wang Chung became part of the contemporary culture of North America. Their huge smash ‘Everybody Have Fun Tonight’, with its now famous line ”Everybody Wang Chung Tonight” saw the invention of a new US verb: ”to Wang Chung”, the band being name-checked by everyone from Homer Simpson, Austin Powers, Two and a Half Men’s Charlie and Alan Harper, Top Gear’s James May and Richard Hammond, to Frasier Crane to name just a few. More recently their music has also featured in TV shows like The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, South Park, Glee, This is Us, SNL and The Goldbergs, amongst many others…as well as in movies like Bumblebee, Deadpool and The Fighter. They have also featured in various huge video game titles like Grand Theft Auto:Vice City and in many big commercials.
Wang Chung return with an orchestral take on an all-time classic.
