  • SONGVIEWS - Midnight Oil - Beds Are Burning

    I had actually talked about this song some time ago, when I asked which you preferred: the live, unplugged version, or the official version. Check it out.


    This time, I just want to have a look at the UNPLUGGED version of BEDS ARE BURNING, by MIDNIGHT OIL.

    This is not my standard fare of 70s music, but this 1987 entry into the bass world was a driving monster of thunder.

    I'd already known the regular studio version for some time, but when I saw the unplugged version, the first thing that got me out of my seat was that yummy acoustic bass! (The thunder from another mother). Any time a bass other than an electric makes its appearance, I always take notice.

    The driving rhythms of this unplugged version should be enough to get you on your feet for some butt-swangin' good times!

    Oh, and in case you're interested, I'm also including a feller's YouTube video of the bass part. Enjoy!

      Hmm... works for me. Try again.


      If it still doesn't work, go to the TR front page and look at the links down the right hand side. Under LATEST VIDEOS is the article called SMOKIN BASS. That's the one I'm pointing to with the link.
