RATE IT! Rooms for the Memory

One of my favourite songs *ever* -- 'Rooms for the Memory' by Michael Hutchence. 

A single release from the 1986-7 Australian movie, 'Dogs in Space', Michael portrayed the real life lead singer of an Aussie punk band circa the late 70s. A unique slice of life, the flick focused on a mish-mash of youths who shared a house in Melbourne - hippies, punks, students, runaways - all together. Today, the movie retains its cult fave status worldwide. Heck, it's the only reason why I still own a VHS machine -- if only director/writer, Richard Lowenstein could finally release a proper DVD version. Until the movie gets the release it deserves, it's the soon-to-be worn out VHS - again.
