Geraldine Quinn - You're The Voice

  • Geraldine Quinn - You're The Voice

Songs for the Ordinary by an Anthemaniac

1986. You’re the Voice. John Farnham becomes a hero with his anthem for the masses. For truly great rock songs lift ordinary people to the status of kings. If only for three minutes.

Who would have thought the former plumber would reinvent himself so heroically? But he did it.

2011. 25 years after Whispering Jack, one anthemaniac vows to write the rock for today’s glorious ordinary. All great rock anthems are about the common or garden heroes.

Quinny brings the powers of the rock anthem to the fore to celebrate the plain middle-of-the-road lives most of us lead. This is for 9–5 jobs, family road trips, RSLs, high school talent quests, parish fetes and weekend benders. This is me. This is you.
