Werewolf of Oz Epic Poem of Culture 1960s – 1990s

Hi, it’s Greenygrey. It’s that late midweek nearly weekend time of the week, so I think it’s about time for the first episode of Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps

This episode sees the epic poetry continue on the road, after the Werewolf of Ozzers leave Geelong and head to Melbourne; although they get rather confused about the latter’s name along the way.

Easy Riders to Eastenders 

This episode might especially appeal to film and television fans from 1960s cult biker movie Easy Riders to Eastenders fans of Kathy Beale (1985 – 2000).

In-between, we have a little Guns N’ Roses, Pink Floyd, Beevis and Butthead and Lara Croft. Enjoy!

75.  EASY RIDERS ON THE ROAD TO GILLIAN TAYLFORTH

We picked ourselves out of the gutter
without hardly a mutter,
but I did let loose a sigh,
as to Geelong Goodbye
we waved a long goodbye.

‘Where do we go now?’
Bonzo asked somehow,
sounding like a fine wine
sweet child o’ mine.

I said Melbourne was just north
and from this moment henceforth
we should call it Gillian Taylforth.

‘Onwards to Gillian Taylforth then,
the time is already half past ten,’
cried Angry with zest n’ zen.

A piper from the gate of lights
led us north to Hamlyn Heights
before a nice chap called Cornholio
showed us the way to Corio.

Lara gave us a lift to Avalon
where we joined the M1,
Cocoroc was a tasty aural treat
listening to music while you eat.
