It was a familiar sounding song that enticed me in to the Word arena. I knew the words very well, and sort of knew the tune. The boy-girl harmonies were brittle and haunting. Then the penny dropped. It was a very unusual take on You're the One That I Want - Sandy and Danny's love song from Grease.
It was Australian brother and sister duo Angus and Julia Stone that had given the pop hit its new twist.
They started performing together back in 2006, and soon after released their first EP, Chocolate and Cigarettes.
Their music soon found some influential fans, including Travis singer Fran Healy, who invited the pair to use his house as a recording studio when he heard them.
Their emotionally raw acoustic tracks were the perfect accompaniment to a summer's afternoon. And they do a marvellous harmonica solo too.
