Inspired by the gorgeous version of 'Samson' on the Voice on Sunday night I've been going back through my music to find other 'forgotten and overlooked' classics.

Mine are:

Julie by Merryl Brainbridge
They weren't there by Missy Higgins
Farewell by Rosie Thomas

Join in! I'm in the mood for some new tunes!
