This was performed by a virtual mass-orchestra, the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, in acknowledgement of the long Melbourne lockdown, only now being relaxed.




This is the history of the song, & why/how Kelly wrote it. It was actually started by Paul Kelly & Chris Langman in 1977, but they only completed the chorus then!
The song was finished by Paul Kelly & released by Paul Kelly & The Coloured Girls in 1986. This link has the original Music Video, with many old shots of Melbourne & the MCG.

Hmmm this is a nice idea but it doesn't really work for me. Singing modern music with a classical inflection always sounds weird to my ears.

*The 747 was a pub/wedding musician before Covid and plays lots of Paul Kelly songs
