Molly's Jukebox Classics will get you dancing

FOLLOWING on from the success of Do Yourself A Favour, the soundtrack to the critically acclaimed and Logie winning mini series Molly, and Molly - Counting Down The Hits, Bloodlines is pleased to present Molly's Jukebox Classics.

Released this Friday, the double album features 40 favourites handpicked by the man himself.

The Seven Network's Molly was one of last year's top-rating mini-series, while the soundtrack went to #1 on the ARIA album chart, spent four months in the Top 10 and has sold more than 140,000 copies. Molly - Counting Down The Hits was another household favourite.

Now it's time to add another toe tapping bunch of hits to your collection with Molly's Jukebox Classics - it's full of party anthems that will guarantee to get everyone on the dance floor.

Unchain My Heart by Joe Cocker, Relax by Frankie Goes To Hollywood and You Spin Me Round (Like A Record) by Dead or Alive are in. From Abba to Australian Crawl, from Kylie to The Angels, the hits are all there.

Ian 'Molly' Meldrum wants you to enjoy the party.

"As you - and all my neighbours - know, I love a party," he said.

"I've had some big parties over the years; for the Aussie cricketers, the St Kilda footy team, Melbourne Storm and plenty of music friends. And you never know who's going to rock up.

"In February 1986, I was having a party at my house; Mark Knopfler, Cyndi Lauper, Tom Petty, Stevie Nicks and my old mate Brian Mannix were all there.

"Then in walked Bob Dylan with Lauren Bacall on his arm.

"Now, that's a party.

"As well as great people, the key to a successful party is, of course, great music. You want songs that people can dance to. You want hits. And you want some surprises," Meldrum said.
