We know that former Sherbet songster, Melbourne Cup entertainer-go-tooer and legend-in-his-own-right Daryl Braithwaite has had a huge fan base following for decades.
With more music hits coming out of his wazoo since your parents were teenages, more recently he has become a cult icon to teenagers of this 21st century – mainly for his 1991 rendition of the Rickie Lee Jones classic, The Horses.
You know, this one where he’s strolling along the beach, belting it out with passion.
So passionate is this song, the young lives of the 21st century have given him a cult status, employing him to perform at basically every horse race – all because of the song title.
Such the cult following of “The Braith”, that someone became inspired by the lyrics and video clip (above):
That’s the way it’s gonna be, little darlin’
We’ll be riding on the horses, yeah
Way up in the sky, little darlin’
And if you fall I’ll pick you up, pick you up
The final line now dawns on a bit of stationery, along with a cartoon portrayal from the video. So amused by this, Daryl himself posted his discovery on his official Facebook page.
No doubt, his fan base will be trying to find the shop that has said item and stock up on this unofficial memorabilia. Better yet, Dags himself could always register his image to merchandise like this and make some decent coin. It could compensate for the bookings at horse races his may not be able to attend to.
