Earlier today Gough Whitlam, the former prime minister of Australia, passed away. He holds an incredible place in Australia’s modern history, symbolising, for many, it’s move from a colonial child to a fully sovereign adult nation.

Personally though, I first encountered him, or at least his name, when I heard, and fell in love with, this song. It’s definitely a pretty whimsical memorial to someone who was obviously a great man, but it introduced me to him and is something I will treasure as long as others treasure the momentous changes he made.

Possibly my favourite track in the world right now, courtesy of one third of the currently hiatused band Doves. Like his former act, Mr Goodwin has come up with a tune that reaks of melancholy ambition, set to a beautifully catchy tune.

True pop, at its best.
