How great is it when you discover a new song? Or better yet a new song with a great video to go with it? Recently I discovered the music video for You’re The Voice by John Farnham on YouTube. So what did I do? I went and found out more about this famous singer from Australia. His voice blew me away. I kept thinking to myself, what have I been missing!! Why have I not heard this before?!
As I dug deeper I found out that You’re The Voice and singer John Farnham are both Australian treasures. The song helped Farnham make a comeback on the music charts in Australia. You’re The Voice was one of the biggest hits in the land down under and it helped Farnham go from Teen Idol to 80’s Rock Star!
It had passion, emotion, and portrayed the message that people had a voice.
The Chorus says,
“You’re the voice, try and understand it, make a noise, and make it clear. Oh, Whoa, We’re not gonna sit in silence, We’re not gonna live with fear. Oh, Whoa.”
You’re the Voice was written by Andy Qunta, Keith Reid, Maggie Ryder, and Chris Thompson.
When you listen to the song it shows you the powerful angelic tenor of Farnham and it really makes you feel inside. This song is so powerful it can give the listener chills.
You’re The Voice is a true power ballad that dominated the charts. The song won Single of the Year at the 1987 ARIA Music Awards.
The song not only reached success in Australia but top the charts in both Germany and Sweden.
Farnham is still singing and performing his classic today. The Anthem is so popular and well known. Once you hear it you have to sing along with it!
