My two favourite songs from Keating!

Power- John Howard's pre 96 aspirations of obtaining PM-hood. I've been singing it all day.



On the floor - the rap-esq battle of Keating V Hewson (it then segues into 'I want to do you slowly'). Keating's insults at about 1.40 onward are all taken from his question time harangues of the unfortunate doc. Pure gold. Makes Eminem's rap battle in 8 Mile look like the equiv of 'yeah-huh / uh-ah, yeah-huh / uh-ah' etc.

  1. Love it! I can't believe I haven't seen it yet. Are they gonna do Sydney again?

    The Feral Abacus! Ah, memories.

  2. I have to confess a preference for the vaguely sun-kissed, calypso feel of Leader of the Land.

    Unfortunately, when I saw it on the first Canberra run I didn't notice them selling the soundtrack. Must try and find a copy on the interwebs.
