The Great Australian Songbook

There have been those who have said that Australia is a country devoid of culture and with no artistic merit. Doug Moody, the greatest singer-songwriter to be spawned by the great land Down Under, has proven those critics wrong with The Great Australian Songbook. This magnificent body of work tells the story of a nation and captures the true spirit and essence of what it is to be an Australian and to try and live and survive on that vast dry continent. Doug has included material covering all genres and moods in what is a remarkably diverse range of compositions. Whilst some songs deal with the birth and development of this great nation, others focus on contemporary issues and concerns. We go from tragedy, to comedy and romance. Amongst the hits to be found in this tome are The Key To Paradise, The Whinger (You Whinger), The Museum of Broken Hearts and Broken Dreams, Go Ahead and Jump, My Bogon Girl, Sign up for a Nightmare with Me, Keep Your Eyes Off My Dole Cheque, The Bludging Mongrels Done a Runner, and The Bastard from the Bush.
