Sunday Session – 1987 Again

I am joining Thea at Do I Really Wanna Blog? and adding some music to this blog

New rules – there are no rules!
On Sundays I play music on my blog.
Old or new or in between.
Related or not.
But always songs I love!
Here are my picks for this week.
You can play along by linking up with Thea.
Happy Sunday!

New Zealand has made it to the Rugby World Cup Final. So this week I have gone with songs I was listening to the last time we won The Webb Ellis Trophy.

First up is Dave Dobbin & The Herbs with Slice of Heaven.  This song was used in the animated movie Footrot Flats. It always reminds me of when I went to see the theatre production of the movie. When Cecil the ram came on stage, a little voice near the back asked “Mum, what’s that hanging between his legs?”. The mother was rather embarrassed and the audience was in stitches. Old Cecil was rather well endowed.

And also that year, I was listening to Crowded House’s Don’t Dream It’s Over.

Come on you mighty All Blacks.

  1. Considering donning my All Blacks jersey to watch this game in spite of the 28 C weather outside! Go the Blacks!

    My hubby loves your choice for this week’s Sunday Session.

      It is rather warm for wearing a rugby jersey. Somehow it just doesn’t feel right not to be stomping my frozen feet to keep the blood circulating whilst watching a game.

    I used to be OBSESSED about both of these songs, but can’t bring myself to listen to them now. Overkill I think! xx

  3. Kat says:

    Both are great songs I haven’t listened to in ages.
    Great to be reminded of them :)

    Oh boy! ‘Slice of Heaven’ was my and an old college boyfriend’s song!!
    That just brought back a few memories.
