Calling all horse girls! Where my The Saddle Club fans at?!

Do you know what today’s date is? It’s the 30th of April 2021. And while that is a cool date in itself because it marks the premiere of RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under and also the point in the year when you’re expected to lug around a jacket, it is also cool because it marks exactly 20 years since the premiere of The Saddle Club. 

The Saddle Club was one of the greatest shows that ever graced the presence of ABC Kids. And that’s a high bar.

Thanks to Carole, Stevie, and Lisa, The Saddle Club made me wish I not only had the ability to ride a horse, but it also made me wish I had a horse-girl group of friends. And while the show is iconic in and of itself, we must talk about what this anniversary really means and that’s two full decades of the theme song, ‘Hello World’.

Let’s Talk About ‘Hello World’, The Theme Song From ‘The Saddle Club’

‘Hello World’ is a simple pop song that has stood the test of time. The acoustic guitar-driven pop song, through the hook “hello world, this is me, life should be, fun for everyone”, actively ended all the problems in the world. In fact, some say, that if this song had come out in 2021, there would be no COVID. 

But, in all seriousness, ‘Hello World’ is an actual bop. There are very few Aussie songs that are guaranteed to fill the dance floor immediately. There’s Vanessa Amerossi’s ‘Absolutely Everybody’, there’s Nikki Webster’s ‘Strawberry Kisses’ and there’s ‘Hello World’ sung by Keenan MacWilliam, Sophie Bennett, and Lara Jean Marshall.
