Party Dates

by The Resignators



The Resignators give you 5 chords and the truth... This is based on a true story, boy meets girl after a wild youth having 'Party Dates' with his mates.

As all good boy girl stories the boy becomes smitten, this time with a gal 'from the emerald isle' he meets whilst on a Party Date and follows her to Ireland and brings her back to the sun of Australia, marries her and they begin their story together in the small hamlet of Hepburn in Victoria, Australia's central highlands.

The story's been told a thousand time before, but not like this, Steve's aggressive guitar combined with Stacy's haunting keys, Alejandro's hard hitting drums and a horn section playing like a battalion in an army waiting to attack combined with Francis telling the story through impassioned lyrics at a break neck speed, show the harder edged side of The Resignators whilst maintaining all the fun .

The second track on this recording is where The Resignators pay homage to seminal Melbourne band GOD who’s track My Pal, originally recorded in 1988, is considered an iconic track by many critics.

The Resignators take the tracks haunting guitar line and replace it with it’s own fire brand horn section pumping out the lick followed by a dub breakdown before returning to the rock essence and ‘that’ horn line.

Totally made by, and coming to, a mosh pit near you... make sure you make it to The Resignators next Party Date.

Track Name: Party Dates
Party Dates
(Douglas, Kilpatrick, Meadan)

I went down to Melbourne town
My fortune for to find
Met my mates for party dates
I almost lost my mind
Then I met a little gal
Who came from the Emerald Isle
My tongue was tied, my mouth went dry
Captivated by her smile

This one’s for my friends
This one’s for my friends

I guess you figured out by now
This story has no end
Now we’re down in Hepburn town.
And eddie has a friend
painted little birdies
are hanging on the wall
Living down in Hepburn town
We’re waiting for the rain to fall

This one’s for my friends
This one’s for my friends

Had to write another verse
When Yoerik came along
He’s the king of the armoured bears
And now he’s in this song
Wolfie’s got a brother now
Eddie’s got two friends
I guess you’ll have to call this song
The song that never ends

The song that never ends
This one’s for my friends
The song that never ends
This one’s for my friends
