In the long history of pop songs being co-opted or leveraged for social cause campaigns, almost none seem an immediately better fit than the rousing You’re The Voice anthem’s alignment for the Albo-driven campaign for a Voice-led change to Australia’s Constitution.
In truth, rarely anywhere in the world has such a catchy and iconic song title mirrored a socio-political campaign slogan so perfectly (voice-to-voice, as it were).
While the song is easily misperceived as a wholly ‘Aussie’ classic, it was actually written by the cohort of English songwriters Qunta, Reid, Ryder, and Thompson.
