I’m not exactly a soaps fan myself, but if you’re Australian, you’d have to have been living under a rock the last 30 years to not at least have a vague knowledge of Neighbours. The show is celebrating its 30th Anniversary on Wednesday, and lots of old stars have returned for the occasion. They also had a special on TV tonight, where even more of the former cast members talked about their time on the show. I sort of nearly forgot about MMM tonight in amongst watching that, so when I finally realised it was time, Edy suggested a Neighbours themed post. Seemed fitting.
For music, Angry Anderson’s Suddenly, which was played over Scott (Jason Donovan) and Charlene’s (Kylie Minogue) wedding. This scene was voted the number one Neighbours moment, and basically every Australian ever (and probably a fair number of Brits as well, given the show’s popularity there) has seen this scene at one point or another, regardless of whether they’ve ever seen any more of the show.
This second one is not one I was familiar with until it came up in the special tonight. Bouncer was the loveable dog on Ramsay St, who basically belonged to everyone on the street. Apparently this was his dream wedding. (Apologies for barely understandable Aussie accents)
Our Mirth and Music Monday linky is over here. Feel free to join in! I’ll see you Wednesday!
