What song reminds you of your youth?
Malibu by Hole - reminds me of summertimes smoking cigarettes and hanging out on the beach in Anglesea with my girlfriends.
What song is your ultimate party track?
I Would Die 4 U by Prince - it’s undeniable. I defy anyone to not dance when they hear it.
What song do you listen to before you jump on stage?
I don’t ever listen to music before I go on stage. Maybe I should. I think I would listen to something that makes me really happy like The Cure Friday Im In Love…
What song would you make your theme song?
One Man Guy by Louden Wainwright III - it’s a bit of a sad song to be a theme song but it resinates with me. Louden is the father of Rufus and Martha Wainwright and by all accounts he was a bit of an arsehole. In this song he is admitting that he’s a loner, that he doesn't need anyone and that he’s comfortable with that. I sing this one at shows from time to time.
What song reminds you of your first heartbreak?
‘Growing Pains’ by Ludacris. Ha, I was big into hip hop/R&B back then. I still know all the words.
What do you have on repeat right now?
Magic Man by Heart - The melody and groove is just so good. And that guitar solo! It’s the perfect rock chick song. And it was in The Virgin Suicides so it reminds me of Josh Hartnett.
What song is your guilty pleasure?
How Can We Be Lovers If We Cant Be Friends by Michael Bolton - I love an 80s power ballad and this one is the ultimate.
