Aussies have power to choose Sounds of Australia
WHAT'S your favourite Australian hit song? Or that iconic jingle you just can't get out of your head?
Would you call either a sound of Australia?
If so, now's the time to let the nation know by helping your favourite piece of music onto the National Film and Sound Archive's (NFSA) Sounds of Australia registry.
More than 100 sounds have been added to the wide-ranging list since its inception in 2007 - including the likes of Cold Chisel's Khe Sanh and the 1938 advertisement Aeroplane Jelly.
Songs and jingles are not the only sounds to make the list with radio programs - such as Roy and HG's This sporting Life - public addresses (Paul Keating's Redfern Address), sporting announcements (Norman May's call of the 4x100m Medley Relay Final at the Mosco Olympics) and even the sounds oft the bush making the honour roll.
And to mark the 10-year anniversary of Sounds of Australia, the public has been invited to nominate up to three sounds to stand the test of time using the website or the hashtag #SoundsOfAustralia on social media.
A panel of experts will then review the nominations, which have to be at least 10 years old, and make a final selection of ten sounds to be added to the list.
We at Seniors have already decided on one of our nominations ….
