Daryl Braithwaite never expected The Horses to gain status as an Australian classic when it was released 30 years ago today, and has described its longevity as a “strange phenomenon”. 

Braithwaite told Neil Breen he one of his most memorable experiences with the song was seeing a stadium of people belting out its lyrics.

“It was just – it was stirring to say the least.

“How they sing it with such gusto.”

It was a stark contrast to when it was first released in January 1991. It wasn’t until months later The Horses topped the charts.

“After much perseverance, it ended up number 1 in May.”
