This is where we stepped in and explained to Daryl that this was part of a popular meme format, where the person was basically trying to resist singing the lyrics to "The Horses", but couldn't because it's so catchy. Offering up his own response to the tweet, Daryl said, "I reckon just ignore the chorus. Cut it out and go straight to the next verse." 2. riley @r_ileymaybe the year is 2061, daryl braithwaite is somehow still alive and performing the horses at your local rsl. meat raffle coming up next. #thevoiceau 10:17 AM - 19 Jul 2020 Reply Retweet Favorite Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF BuzzFeed Australia When Daryl stopped laughing, he said: "Well, that is just impossible.

He said, "It is amazing when...the whole crowd is singing. You do have these visions in your head. It's like a euphoric experience [and] I just stand there and go that's incredible. So, that tin roof, on a summer's day with the rain — it does fit the picture most definitely." 4. Josh Butler @JoshButler If you play Daryl Braithwaite's 'The Horses' at 11:58:50pm on New Year's Eve that first "that's the way it's GONNA BE little darling, we'll be riding on the horses YEAH YEAH" will play right as the clock strikes midnight. Start off your new year right. 11:08 PM - 17 Dec 2017 Reply Retweet Favorite Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF BuzzFeed Australia Not realising this was an old meme format, Daryl's first impression of this tweet was that the author had "gone to a lot of trouble to work it out methodically." (BLESS!!!!)But, upon reflecting on the tweet and his career, Daryl said: "I never would have thought — looking back to when I starting singing in a band back in 1970 — that something like this would happen with that song ['The Horses']. The concern and love that people have for it...it's quite extraordinary." And when asked if he would be willing to test it out to ring in 2021, Daryl said: "Well, I would in my own backyard since we won't be allowed out or playing. But, I'll give it a go and bring in the new year." 5.
