OUR neighbours in Hervey Bay had friends around the other night, which is always lots of fun for us on the other side of the fence.
You see, our next-door neighbours have a really good taste in music and are not scared to join in with the singing.
It’s always a great deal of fun when the singing gets more confident and requests appear to be made.
There are the regular songs that get played often, I assume favourite albums that form to go to collection when entertaining.
Their taste in music is a good mix of 70s, 80s and 90s – with the odd hit from today chucked in as well.
It reminds me a lot of the radio station I used to work at!
But there was a group of friends around at the neighbours recently that resulted in a different song being belted out. It wasn’t a problem for us next door, it just wasn’t on the normal playlist.
“Perhaps it’s a different group of friends,” we thought.
It’s not often that you hear adults singing along to Let it Go from Frozen!
Be that as it may, it made me wonder about the feel-good stories we all have about our neighbours.
It’s so easy to get caught up in negativity and complaining about things we see on social media or even in public places like shopping centres or the beach, for example.

But what makes us happy at home?
I know when we moved here all our neighbours introduced themselves to us, wanted to get to know us and invited us to their end-of-year Christmas parties and drinks on the driveway.
It’s a great community and a happy street to live in.
So, in honour of that moment when we realised we’ve actually learnt a lot about our neighbours through the music they listen to – here’s video of a voice artist singing Let it Go as different Disney characters.
Brian Hull recorded the song a few years ago and it quickly went viral online.
Have a listen, it’s great!
