Whereabout's in Oz is this?? I've often wondered whether the lyrics in blue
sky mining were based on a particular time/place in mining history of if it
were a general cry of dissatisfaction...
And speaking of Oils lyrics I have, for years and years, had my own
interpretation/s for a lot of them (usually the more obvious ones, such as
'Beds are burning') - but there are plenty of others with lots of
background to them that may not be readily apparent to the listener if they
haven't done their homework ('Harrisburg' is a good one that comes to mind,
particularly, I think, for younger members like myself (I'm 27)).
Given this, can anyone on the list recommend a good resource (or similar)
on the web that covers interpretations/background of Oils lyrics (no
particular era) - assuming such a resource even exists!
If so, that'd be great (or any other help) as I've often wanted to know
more about so many of the songs, over the years...
