Bob, I know you were a fan.  Australian music has lost a legend. Sad

@Oldenginerod, sorry to hear of the passing of Judith Durham, she was truly an angel. For one element that truly embodied the soul and spirit of Australia, I would have to say that it was The Seekers, and she is what made the group come alive with her silky, smooth, next door girl voice.

Rebeat Magazine wrote:One of the first Australian acts to gain international stardom was a quartet of folk singers from Melbourne calling themselves the Seekers. Even then, they had to leave their homeland for Great Britain to find success, riding a cruise ship (for which they supplied entertainment) to London. There, they met Tom Springfield, a young musician who had previously starred in the folk trio the Springfields, alongside his sister Dusty. Springfield wrote and produced the Seekers’ debut single, “I’ll Never Find Another You,” which hurtled to the top of the UK singles charts and to #4 in America. While the Seekers weren’t the very first act from Down Under to achieve this kind of success — English-born, Australian-raised crooner Frank Ifield had netted similar numbers a few years earlier — they fit the musical zeitgeist in a way that made them genuine youth stars: not quite folk-rock, but with enough freshness and bounce that they didn’t seem hopelessly square.
When I mentioned embodiment and soul of Australia, I was referring to the common person, not the politicians and elites who could care less. The fact the song was less appreciated in US also does not surprise me.

It was Kim that turned me on to the Seekers, now I'm a huge fan running their youtube videos weekly and I am devastated to hear of Judith's passing.  I had no clue, seems the press worldwide should be all over this. Sometimes life just isn't fair, hanging my head a bit.

They just don't come any better.

I'm so glad that "The Boys" as she called them spent some time with her just before her passing.

I remember when Kim first posted the "There will never be another you" video, I commented "Hands on hips cute". She is missed.

She was the girl next door type, not super elegant like a movie star but portrayed the wholesome, down to earth type of girl, very personable. Yes, glad to see that her Seeker band members were able to say their goodbyes.

I played Georgie Girl for a millennial co-worker of mine. He liked the song, but had a fun time of mimicking 30’s gangster talk when bringing it up.

She had a good long life!
