I love listening to music.
Unfortunately, I haven’t been listening to the radio and I don’t have an iPod. I have simply lost touch with the latest music releases.Absolute ignorance to the latest and hottest hits nowadays. Sighs.
I do watch TV quite a lot. The other day, as I flicked through the channels, the Vodafone NZ Music Awards was on, and coincidentally announcing the nominees for best-selling single. Okay, a good short cut way to find out what’s in….well at least in New Zealand charts!
I quickly recognised the tunes of two of the nominated songs. Because one of them is the theme song for TV2 and the other TV1! I watch TV2 most and when their new campaign and theme song went on air some months ago, the tune quickly stuck to my head.
I liked how NZTV supports the local music industry by selecting local artistes’ work for theme songs.
Avalanche City‘s – Love, Love, Love, the theme song for TV2. Beautiful guitar beats and a pleasant sing-along tune. Love it!
The best selling single in New Zealand was Brooke Fraser‘s – Something in the Water. The theme song for TV1. Also a catchy song with folk-sy melodies.
Have a great weekend!
