Subject: Sweet & Sour

Written By: spirit301 on 12/14/02 at 03:05 p.m.

Does anyone remember the TV series from 1984 called 'Sweet & Sour' on the ABC network.  It was set in Australia and was centred around a young up-and-coming Aussie Band called The Takeaways.

The 2 soundtracks were released for the series with band being called The Takeaways as the performers.

Who were the actual artists who sang 'Sweet & Sour' the theme song (not the actors).

I think it was Deborah Conway & Sharon O'Neill.  Does anyone know if this is correct?

Can't help you with your question about who sang the theme song, but I do remember the show and I loved it.  I can remember going out west one school holidays to visit my sister, and the only channel they had out there was the ABC.  I guess thats when I got hooked on the show - David Reyne was in it wasn't he?

Spirit, Deborah Conway sung it

Sharon O'neill write the Sweet and Sour theme song

I don't know who the other singer (if any) there was, perhaps it was Conway's voice double-tracked ?
