I can remember exactly where I was the first time I saw this: a loungeroom in Engadine when it came on Countdown. I was mesmerised. It’s still one of my favourite songs and music videos. One of the first things I thought on hearing the news was to hope that my daughters weren’t too upset about it: it’s amazing that my reactions to one performer can span from when I was ten years old to having teenage kids of my own.
This is my favourite: a joyous, soaring anthem to love and mortality.
