Overseas Song Watch (New York City, United States)

Written 29 January 2009.

I have to run down some internet credit I bought before leaving for London tomorrow, so here is a list of all the Australian songs I’ve heard on my travels:

Truly Madly Deeply (Savage Garden): Union Square ice rink, SF
Overkill (Colin Hay): Union Square ice rink, SF
Don’t Dream It’s Over (Crowded House): Camp Curry, Yosemite National Park
Where I Stood (Missy Higgins): Plane taxiing to JFK
In This Life (Delta Goodrem): Baggage Carousel at JFK
Joker and the Thief (Wolfmother): Rangers game at Madison Square Garden
Rock and Roll Train (AC/DC): Rangers game at Madison Square Garden
Torn (Natalie Imbruglia): Internet cafe in Soho

While I write this, We Don’t Need Another Hero (Tina Turner) is playing. That song was featured in Mad Max 3: Beyond Thunderdome, a sort-of Australian film.

Isla Fisher is bigger here than in Australia.

A movie called Paul Blart: Mall Cop is the number one movie in the country. The NY Times review called it “a viable alternative to waterboarding”.
