30 Day Song Challenge #29: A Song From Your Childhood

[Day 29: A Song From Your Childhood]

Peter Combe – Spaghetti Bolognaise

I grew up to the music of Peter Combe. I vaguely remember listening to his many albums (including like 50 christmas records), and I’m pretty sure I even went to one of his live shows at some point. And why wouldn’t you? This was awesome back in the day, and I can’t imagine better music to soundtrack your childhood.

The greatest thing about this however is that Peter Combe has re-started his career recently, playing at over-age venues to the young adults who grew up with his music. Last year I saw him play at uni, and it took me half of his set to turn to my mate and say “I think this is kids music!”. It was only when I started subconsciously singing along with the songs that I realised what was actually going on, and I then proceeded to watch the small mosh (yes, mosh) of enthusiastic uni students that developed around the stage.

Following this I actually went to see a Peter Combe headline gig with a few people, and it was so very much fun. His set began at like midnight and the crowd was so enthusiastic, singing along to pretty much every song, especially his big hits such as this, Spaghetti Bolognaise. The most charming thing about the show was that Peter treated us all like kids- he hasn’t changed his stage presence at all over the years. It was incredibly nostalgic, and an absolutely brilliant experience. Especially considering that everyone was wearing newspaper hats.

I like it everyday, spaghetti bolognaise.
