The music line-up at the 2008 Basilica Block Party left a bit to be desired, but — as at every BBP — there was one performance that made up for other ho-hum performances.

Missy Higgins sang the bulk of songs from her 2007 release “On A Clear Night.” Clearly, she blew the audience away with her vocals, personality and musicianship. The crowd was a good 8,000 during her performance, but less a third of that number stayed for the last act of the night – Gavin Rossdale.

In this video, Higgins sings, “Where I Stood,” at the ’07 Aria Awards in Australia. Her popularity is growing rapidly outside of her home country – at last.

Enjoy the tune.

A friend suggested I give a listen to this singer/songwriter from Australia. This song, “Don’t Ever,” is just one of many beautifully written and performed songs out there. I’ll be looking more up on iTunes soon.

Lyrics:

Let’s take a train to anywhere
I want to feel the wind in my hair with you
Let’s tell them all that soon they’ll know
How very wrong they were to think we’d never go

And if you tell me yours I’ll tell you mine
And we will clean the cobwebs out of one anothers’ minds
Don’t ever say you tried to leave me in this life
Don’t ever say you tried for the last time

We’ll get a house where the trees hang low
And pretty little flowers on our windowsill will grow
We’ll make friends with the milkman
And the butcher Mr. Timms will give us discounts when he can

And if you tell me yours I’ll tell you mine
And we will clean the cobwebs out of one anothers’ minds
Don’t ever say you tried to leave me in this life
Don’t ever say you tried for the last time

la di da di da la di da di da la di da di da di da di da

Don’t ever say you tried to leave me in this life
Don’t ever say you tried to leave me in this life
Don’t ever say you tried for the last time
