They’ve been on our radar since 2002 and just to our luck, the Australian pop rock band Thirsty Merc are still jamming and jamming damn well. Known for so many great ballads that we have all blasted through the speakers of our cars, we’ve made a shortlist of our favourite Thirsty Merc songs that we hope they’ll be playing at their shows.
IN THE SUMMERTIME – embracing all things Aussie’s love about the heat
♪♪♪ Take me back to the sweet times, the hot nights, everything is gonna be alright in the summertime, baby in the summertime. And even if I have to wait til next year, I don’t care, all I know is that I’ll meet you there in the summertime, baby in the summertime, that is where I’ll be ♪♪♪
20 GOOD REASONS – ultimate break up song
♪♪♪ They said love hurts, I wrote that book, I climbed that wall, I had one look, but you just came around, to say hello. The streets were filled with guilty hearts and here was I right from the start, and I lost everything, when I lost you ♪♪♪
SOMEDAY SOMEDAY – excuses, excuses; holding on to an unrequited love
♪♪♪ I know you gotta go to university and I’m just trying to make some cash to follow my dreams. But please don’t say we’re too busy to give each other the time and support we need. I know we gotta work our jobs and make some money to get by in this expensive world. Don’t let that overtake the fact that before all that, you were still my girl ♪♪♪
