"C'mon Aussie, C'mon" Is Released
"C'mon Aussie C'mon" is an Australian Cricket anthem.
Originally performed by the Mojo Singers in 1978 as an advertising jingle to promote World Series Cricket's unofficial Australian cricket team, the song eulogised players such as Dennis Lillee, the Chappell brothers Ian and Greg and Rod Marsh. It ended with the refrain, "C'mon Aussie, C'mon, C'mon" sung again and again. The song was part of an advertising campaign devised by the Mojo agency for the Channel Nine network, which televised WSC cricket.
Released as a single, it was a smash hit and was played at the WSC games and even sung by crowds at the official Test matches.
Each season the lyrics changed to announce who would be the Australian cricket team's opponents that summer and to highlight the latest stars of the team.
In 2004, Australian singer Shannon Noll resurrected the song with new lyrics to mention current stars of the game as Adam Gilchrist, Ricky Ponting, Shane Warne and Glenn McGrath.
The track was released on December 20, 2004 to aid the children's charity "Good Start", a joint charity set up by the Australian Red Cross and Sanitarium foods to raise money to ensure all Australian children start the day with a healthy breakfast. The charity reported an earning of in excess of AU$150,000 from the proceeds of the sales of the single.
