Help me find who this artist is... Down Under
« on: February 09, 2012, 06:35:33 pm »
Down Under (Acoustic)

Ever since I heard this particular version of this song, I've been on a quest to find out who it is (Ok, it's been going years now. This is ridiculous). I'm fairly confident it is NOT Colin Hay. The voice is not the same and typically Colin Hay's acoustic version is slow.

Listen to this... it's got great picking and rhythm.

I even go SoundHound app to help me try to pinpoint the singer/artist. Unfortunately it points to a Colin Hay acoustic album. It is not that one.

You're STILL trying to solve this one? I remember when you brought this up at the other site, who shall remain nameless. I thought someone figured it out for you back then.

Nope....

I'm kinda glad I found it on youtube... a couple of times. So it's out there and I'm not the only one who enjoys it, but who is this Mofo?

It really kills me that the people that gave it to me, cut this CD from their collection. They don't know. They just assume men at work.

You know, it could be Colin trying a different approach both musically and stylistically and that may be throwing you off a bit. You have his voice so embedded that you probably just can't "hear" it. I dunno. To me it sounds like Barry White, but what the f uck do I know?

I tend to agree. The voice is lower, and I think not even remotely something like Hay's would do. I've been searching amazon, youtube and nothing Colin Hay even comes close.

It's a goddamn quest I tell ya


gahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Just a thought...but have you ever considered calling the dude up on the phone and playing him the song and asking him about it? It's a long shot, but if it works, you will have an awesome story to tell. And while you have him on the phone, get him to join Penny Can.

Calling Colin Hay? That's f ucking brilliant. Why didn't I think of that.

Did I tell you about the time I called Peter Lloyd the illustrator? It was for a art report. Before the internet I somehow found his phone number, rang him up and talked to him for 15 minutes.

To cool, eh

How would one go finding a way to contact to a celebrity and talk to him directly today?

How would one go finding a way to contact to a celebrity and talk to him directly today?

Find out what label he is currently under contract for. It's a shot in the dark, but you could also go directly to his website and post an email to him, and if they have a forum there, which I'm sure he does, you can ask around and I'm sure you will get a response pretty fast. If you call the Record Company, be sure to ask the Secretary to join Penny Can!!

If that doesn't work, he should have a Twitter account set up and you can ask him directly through that. Yes, it will require you have an account yourself. You're just gonna have to bite the bullet on that one if you ever want to get a definitive answer to your question.

Holy Kee-rap... I finally, after all this time, found who played and sang the song I've been looking for.

Is this the same song that you have been searching for spanning 3 forums, 5 years and 20 women?
