My second song of the week for 2013 is this catchy little tune called Second Solution from Aussie rockers The Living End.

This was not the song I originally had picked out for this week, but since I’ve had this stuck in my head since Saturday, I felt like I should share it.

Released in 1997, Second Solution featured on The Living End’s “Second Solution/Prisoner of Society” EP (1997) and debut self-titled album (1998). Together with Prisoner of Society (which you can find here), this song helped catapult the band first into the Australian, and then the International, charts.

It has been 16 years since this song’s release, but The Living End are still going. They released their sixth studio album in 2011 and recently completed their ‘Retrospective Tour’ where they played each of their albums in full, on consecutive nights, in Australia’s five major capital cities. Such a tour has stirred rumours of The Living End coming to an end, but with such an announcement yet to be made, I’m not going to start making any assumptions about what’s next for the band. I guess we will just have to wait and see!


Check back later in the week for my reading list for 2013, as it currently stands.
