Triple M Nights with Dave Gleeson

8:09pm: “Take Me Out” by Franz Ferdinand

9:19pm: “New Year’s Day” by U2


my Dave Gleeson musical highlights tonight

Spare Me The Details – The Offspring

Classic 9 at 9 (Theme: Days and Nights)
Dreadlock Holiday – 10CC (very appropriate after last night!)
New Year’s Day – U2 (one of the few U2 songs I genuinely like)
Every Day Is A Winding Road – Sheryl Crow
A Day In The Life – The Beatles
Absolutely (Story Of A Girl) - Nine Days


Ugh, this cover was flogged a lot on Triple M many years ago and despite charting at 4 on the Aria charts in 2003/04, it actually came from Limp Bizkit’s 4th album “Results May Vary” the highly unsuccessful follow up to their successful “Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavoured Water,” not only did the album end the mainstream relevance of Limp Bizkit and Fred Durst (they still have a cult following with the upcoming appearance in the “Good Things” festival in a few weeks), the album also killed the Nu Metal genre once and for all back in 2003.


At 2:08 PM, Triple M Sydney 104.9 played Divinyls - “I’ll Make You Happy” as part of Double Shot Tuesday with “Pleasure and Pain” as the previous song. A rejuvenated cover of an Easybeats classic if I say so myself.


When I was at an IGA Supermarket shopping, I heard that song, Feedback from Janet Jackson. This song is an underrated song.

Triple M Nights with Dave Gleeson

One more in the name of love.


Sometimes these posts… it just makes me laugh!


I thought The Undertaker returning to the Deadman character having being the American Bada** killed them…

Nah, by the time “Results May Vary” came out in September of 2003, Undertaker was using “You’re Gonna Pay” as his entrance theme during the remainder of his American Badass/ Big Evil biker gimmick, although Limp Bizkit did perform “Rollin” as his entrance theme at Wrestlemania 19 in Seattle six months earlier.

Although Linkin Park’s “Meteora” and Evanescene’s “Fallen” did do well in the charts (both of these bands would change genres in the mid to late 2000s), by the time RMV came out, everyone in the music industry was completely sick to death of Nu Metal at that point hence many people consider Limp Bizkit’s “Results May Vary” and Korn’s “Take a look in the Mirror” as the two albums that killed Nu Metal once and for all. After Nu Metal’s demise, Emo jumped in with bands such as (but not limited to) Panic! At the Disco, My Chemical Romance, Fall Out Boy and would dominate the modern rock charts in the mid to late 2000s.

Style Council - Shout To The Top

Huey Lewis and The News - Hip To Be Square

Heard on Triple M’s Awesome 80’s Friday (via 104.5 Brisbane)


Friday Night 80s…

Forever Classic TGIF (streamed via GNFM)

Dance Little Sister – Terence Trent D’Arby
Blue Jean – David Bowie
I Want To Be Straight – Ian Dury & The Blockheads

Gold104.3 – Totally 80s

Say Goodbye – Hunters & Collectors
Down Under (12 inch) – Men At Work (even though it’s such a huge song, I’ve never heard the 12 inch mix on the radio before).
(I Love It When You) Call Me Names – Joan Armatrading


Via Triple M’s Almost Acoustic Sunday on Triple M Newcastle 102.9 FM , I heard “The World I Know” from Collective Soul. A wonderful song from smack bang in the mid nineties.


Yeah I’m not a huge 90s fan overall but that’s a great one.

A very underrated and underplayed 90s act.

“Where The River Flows”, “December” and “Precious Declaration” are my favs of theirs. “Heavy” and “Gel” are good too.

“Shine” was probably their biggest hit here.

None of which I’ve heard on the radio in years.


“My Girl,Gone ,Gone ,Gone “ Chilliwack ,on The Breeze👍

some good ones there!

I was a bit late getting organised tonight, so I timeshifted Dave Gleeson via Triple M Adelaide from 7.30pm Eastern… in addition to your list, I can add the following tunes

Suicide Blonde - INXS
Get Back - The Beatles
Darling It Hurts - Paul Kelly And The Messengers
Because The Night - Patti Smith
Tonight She Comes - The Cars

And the highlight for me was hearing this rarely played gem

Let The Night Roll On - The Angels
(which was the #1 song in the ‘Classic 9 at 9’ - the theme being ‘Nights’, where the Patti Smith and The Cars songs were also heard)


Heard this beautiful cover of Smokey Robinson’s “Cruisin” by Huey Lewis and Gwyneth Paltrow from the 2000 film, “Duets” at Woolworths in Maitland NSW this morning.
