KNOW ANY CHISEL? Top hits to request at the pub this festive season

Hellooooo people of Newy.

It’s the festive season which means it’s the silly season, which means that you’re going to be hitting the pub and the sauce like it ain’t no thang. You’re the kind of person to hit the D-floor after a few drinks, right?

If you’re going to do such a thing, you need to practice your moves in advance and get ready to be the life of the party. How do you do this? By requesting these hot hits of course. They are not only crowd favourites, but bands and artists love to, no nay, LIVE to play them.

Horses – Daryl Braithwaite

In between the slow build and the booming chorus, how can you go wrong with this epic hit?

Make sure you lock eyes with your new best mate, the one you made in the bathrooms only five minutes ago and put your hands in the air like you just don’t care. 

Eagle Rock – Daddy Cool

Whether you come on fast or come on slow, you’re just crazy about the way you move, dooooiiinnnnnnnn the Eagle Rock. Right?

This is one of those classy, classic hits that is sure to get your back slapped in between frothy bevvies. Pants or no pants, you do you. 

Save a Horse Ride a Cowboy – Big & Rich

Because you’re the man. Like the man. The guy about town.

You’ve never been to the country but you might one day and if you ever do, you want to be able to know all the words to this song, so one day, someone will look at you like you’re honeycomb and sing this song to you. 

You’re The Voice – John Farnham 

Because nothing says Aussie pub hero than belting out this absolute Farnsy classic. And no, it doesn’t matter what time of day it is, or how quiet the pub is, you do you.

Every artist loves to play this one. In fact, if someone doesn’t request this song soon, an artist will panic. 

Khe Sahn – Cold Chisel

The holy grail of all things that are holy.

You don’t need to know what this song is about, you just need to know when to chime in with the YEAH-HOO (hint, it’s when Barnsey screams the bit about the plane and Sydney).

If you thought You’re The Voice was a much-requested item, then this is what artists, I mean real artists, live to play.
