Song of the Week #12 – Friday on My Mind (The Easybeats)

Here at Heatwave & Landman world headquarters we’re pretty huge fans of the pop side of 60’s rock & roll. Let’s celebrate this Friday with a classic from Australia’s The Easybeats! Friday on My Mind, released in 1966, was the first big pop hit to come out of the Land Down Under and you may be surprised to know that without the success of The Easybeats, we may never have had AC/DC. Rhythm guitarist and songwriter George Young is the older brother of Angus and Malcom and used his experiences to help guide their early career and along with fellow Easybeat, George Vanda, produced their first 6 albums.
