What a shocking and sad day.

It was nice that Mel Tracina paid tribute to Olivia Newton-John in The Cheap Seat and she said she was going to blast Physical all week.

For me, Hopelessly Devoted To You was my favorite ONJ song. I used to listen to it when I had a ‘crush’ on someone (we all had a dark past !!!)

Who would have thought that she and Mariah were friends. She was the pleasant surprise at Mariah’s 1998 first Melbourne concert. It’s such an underrated duet hence I wanted to share it here. I wish they recorded a full version of this song.

RIP Olivia

Don’t forget Johnny Famechon. All six of them were Australian icons.

Except I don’t know Johnny Famechon.

Are you the arbiter of who gets icon status?

He was before my time and I don’t follow boxing at all, but even I knew who he was.
