Rediscover the Divinyls
Today Christina “Chrissy” Amphlett passed away due to complications from breast cancer and MS. In a world of cookie cutter vocalists she was different. She was the lead singer of the Australian band the Divinyls. Austin Powers fans will recognize their hit song “I Touch Myself.” The single was off of their 1991 self-titled album. The whole album is a delight. The album is a wonderful combination of great vocals, driving guitar and outstanding lyrics. It’s a unique and incredible pop album. The songs are catchy and her voice is a fun to listen to. My favorite song on the album was the beautiful love song “I’m On Your Side.” I listened to this album endlessly during the early 1990’s.
If you are looking for something a bit different than the current pop fares give the Divnyls a listen. Some of their music can be found on services such as Rdio and Spotify. You can listen to samples every where multimedia is sold!
