Cold Chisel - 'Breakfast at Sweet Hearts' (1979)
Hello! all you Aussies out there, this one's for you.
I found Cold Chisel by chance, I was musically bored and bought several things that I had never heard of before and one of them was 'The Best of Cold Chisel'. For some reason I thought they were a heavy metal band and it was a pleasant surprise that they were not but they were just what I needed at the time with so many brilliant songs. 'Breakfast at Sweethearts' was my instant favourite and I loved the slight reggae feel to it.
I was on vacation in Pattaya, we used to go there often for a spot of R&R (I worked in Saudia Arabia), I will always remember an all nighter we had, in the 'pink light district', plenty Singha beer, music and laughter. We went back to a friends Hotel room overlooking Pattaya Bay and watched the sunrise before going down for the Hotel breakfast. It was quite literally the best breakfast I have ever had and spinning around my head were the words :
Six o'clock I'm going down,
The coffee's hot and the toast is brown,
Hey! street-sweeper, clear my way,
Sweethearts' breakfast the best in town.
woh o-o-oh, Breakfast at Sweethearts.
Oh! To be back there now. I will just have to settle for Cold Chisel and several San Miguels
We later visited an Australian Navy ship in Jeddah Harbour and I was an instant hit with my knowledge of the 'Australian Beatles' and of course Rolf Harris.
I have just heard that Jimmy and the Boys are to reunite, hence this post.
