Feelgood Friday

Perth Scotland or Perth Western Australia? WA has it. While not everyone sings, you can't help but think people arrived at work in very happy moods.

The north south railway line in Perth is brilliant and we travelled on it when we visited Perth a couple of years ago, and that is the railway line used in this clip. Grace? Sami? City bound from Butler or Mandurah? Yes, still in Australia but nearly five hours flying time away from us. Said to be the largest most isolated city in the world as its next biggest city is five hours flying time away, which would be Melbourne or Sydney. We loved our visit to Perth and isn't this more to love about Perth. My only criticism is that it is very 'white' for a large Australian city, but I think that is changing as the city grows.

  1. This is perfect, isn't it? Jack has the news on right now, and I am almost ready to scream. How can these so called Law-Makers, act like such children? I say throw the entire lot out!
    I think I need to put on my headphones and zone out!
    I think I even have a version of Over the Rainbow on my Ipod!

  2. Flash mobs always make my eyes leak. And this is no exception.
    What a delightful start to their day (and mine).

    1. EC, spontaneous Flash Mobs are getting hard to find. I will post them when I come across some good ones. Few and far between.

  3. It's great to start a day off happily...it's even better if the happiness continues throughout. :)

    1. Lee, I reckon the happiness might last half an hour into work time for many.

  4. The Wizard Of Oz version, which to me is the original, is not as good as almost every other version I have heard. Yours included in the better-thans.

  7. A VERY well travelled friend of mine once said that Perth was possibly the best city in the world to retire to. Perhaps he was right.

    1. It is a great city, Cro. I know some things about Perth, but I like to retire where I have trams to get me about.

  8. Perth: hot in summer; too windy on the beach after about 11am; cold wet and windy in winter; strong redneck element; zero tolerance policing toughened up on aborigines and said redneck element; sandy soil (if you can even call it soil); marked presence (compared to "Eastern States" of Scots and South Africans; bush mostly more like scrub...

    1. Marcellous, too hot in the summer for me, indeed. I am remembering what Aussie/Asian blogmate said about Perth when he was there, but I can only call it as I found it, from a tourist experience, and I liked it. But I will say, it is quite Anglo Saxon and there is perhaps a lack of black hair.

  9. That made my day too Andrew, hadn't heard of this one and I'll share it on Facebook. And I love Perth, a great city to live in my humble opinion!
    Thanks Andrew, have a great weekend.

    1. Well Sami, you have lived around, so that is a high recommendation.

  10. What a lovely thing to do. I hope it happens in other cities too. I'm sure everyone in that carriage arrived at work in a happier mood, or at least with something to talk about.

    1. River, if not happier, certainly something to talk about when reaching work. There are often performances on Melbourne public transport, and like the best flash mobs, you just have to be coincidentally there at time.

  11. Yup that's the train I catch into the city. How I wish that would happen when I'm on the train, would definitely sing, think it happens much earlier, peak getting to work times. Andrew if you visited certain parts of North Perth it's like stepping into Asia, I love it, the food is excellent!

    1. Grace, yes, I am sure Perth is becoming much more cosmopolitan, and it needs to, to flourish.
