Listen to track sample
Strikin’ A Blow
from the CD Single.
This song tells the story of the great Australian heritage and pride in our country, emerging from the early 1900s shearing shed era, then recognizing the personal sacrifice of our Anzac diggers at Gallipolli, and ultimately this spirit is now inherited by Australian youth in sporting fields.
From the haunting opening instrumental, the mood is created to make you want to listen to the story, and progressively builds to an anthem-like quality by the time the song climaxes. RON BUCKPITT has written a “beauty”, and GREG WILLIAMS’ vocal delivery deeply draws the listener into the song.
This is the next in a succession of songs which will, over time, join RUN EMU RUN to become an album of Ron’s diverse range of song-writing.
