What is the highest achievement of music?
When it serves an emotion.
When I listen to “Waltzing Matilda” by Tommy Emmanuel. And I look outside at the downtown skyline of Melbourne, and I am suddenly liking it so much more.
Even feeling a bit patriotic about it, with its grey, gloomy skies.
Even though I was born so far away from here, and outside of this song I don’t feel like I belong here at all.
This is music at its best.
* Waltzing Matilda is a tune that’s considered to be “Australia’s unofficial anthem” and is massively loved here.
