MOLLY’S WOMEN OF ROCK & POP New Compilation Out Now

5 min read

It’s reigning women on the latest compilation album curated by music guru Ian “Molly” Meldrum.

Molly has selected 38 of his favourite songs for Molly’s Women Of Rock & Pop, including chart-toppers such as Blondie’s ‘Heart of Glass’, Bonnie Tyler’s ‘Total Eclipse of the Heart’, Kim Carnes’ ‘Bette Davis Eyes’, Nena’s ‘99 Luftballoons’, Kim Wilde’s ‘You Keep Me Hangin’ On’, and Laura Branigan’s ‘Gloria’.

Molly says the album is “a celebration of some of the finest female talent of the past 40 years”.

Most of the songs on the two-disc set come from the Countdown era. “Women contributed so much to the Countdown playlist,” Molly says.

“There was never any sexism or discrimination at Countdown. We didn’t care if a song was by a male, female or transgender artist; straight or gay; local or international … if we liked it, we played it.”

The compilation also features some classic homegrown hits, including Eurogliders’‘Heaven (Must Be There)’, Divinyls’ ‘Pleasure and Pain’, Baby Animals’ ‘One Word’, I’m Talking’s ‘Trust Me’, Deborah Conway’s ‘It’s Only The Beginning’, Electric Pandas’ ‘Big Girls’, and Pat Wilson’s ‘Bop Girl’.

Molly’s Women Of Rock & Pop is released on Bloodlines, part of the Mushroom Group of labels. It follows the previous Molly compilations, 2016’s Counting Down The Hits and 2017’s Molly’s Jukebox Classics – both top 5 hits on ARIA’s compilation chart – plus the double platinum soundtrack to the MOLLY mini-series, which topped the ARIA charts and spent four months in the Top 10.
