On Monday, 22nd April 2013, around 4pm Sydnet time, news came through to Australia of the passing of an Australian music legend - Chrissy Amphlett. Chrissy was the front and centre of Australian band Divinyls, and what a front and centre she was. My first memories of Chrissy were growing up watching Countdown on a Sunday evening, at 6pm. "Boys in Town" was the first Divinyls song I ever saw - the glowing mic stand; the hair cut; the school girl outfit; the voice - these were what I remembered about that song and that band.
If asked what my favourite Divinyls song of all time is: "Pleasure and Pain", definitely.
The following playlist is not only a tribute to Chrissy, but also to some amazing female vocalists and performers that I've enjoyed listening too over the years.
RIP and thank you, Chrissy Amphlett (25 October 1959 – 21 April 2013)
