Is it pink?

The Weekend Challenge – Calamine

This word made me think of an Australian singer, Billy Thorpe. He was/is a legend of the Australian music scene. This was one of his first hits, which so many of you would know has been done by so many people, the Rolling Stones 1964, The Coasters 1959, Manfred Mann 1965, Dave Clarke Five 1965, to name a few. More cover versions in the list here This is an early video of his appearance with his group The Aztecs on a great TV music show from the 60’s Australian Bandstand.

Billy Thorpe went on to do some great songs but sometimes came back to his old hits. This is almost fifty years later

Why does this post have anything to do with Calamine? Listen to the songs.
