    Quiz #34

    I wonder who will get the name of this “bush ballad” first.

    The singer had a special connection to the song in 2000.

    1. What is the song?
    2. Who is singing it?

    Would have to be Slim Dusty - Waltzing Matilda. He closed the 2000 Olympics with this song.

    Phil, Yes. Waltzing Matilda; the 2000 Olympics is the connection. You and Sparky are co-winners on this one.

    Here is Slim singing the song in a nice setting: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CwvazMc5EfE

    GEE, I didn't even get a look in - there were no quizzes on the page, when I went out this morning to a Christmas party - just got home. I will be out all day tomorrow, so I will probably miss out again. You do know [I hope] that these quizzes are great fun, but very addictive, but also frustrating at times. From Fred's experience 'on the road', Slim never referred to himself as a Country Music artist, but always as a Bush Balladeer.
