The Great Zorko: What's he like?

'The Zorks' has exploded onto the AFL scene & quickly become a favourite of the fans, particularly those who have a dream team.

I've known Dayne since my school days, when he was known as 'Tinker' (Tinkerbell) for being so small & girly looking (haha just jokes). His older brother was school captain when I was in Grade 12 at Benowa State High & we both played for the mighty Surfers Paradise Demons JFC.

I was super stoked & proud to see Zorks get his chance at AFL with the Brisbane Lions.

Now let's have a look at his music taste. WARNING he did grow up on the Gold Coast so this could be interesting.

Who's your favourite artist of all time? The Script  At the moment? Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

Pop song that gets stuck in your head? MKTO- Thank You

Do you listen to music before games? Yeah

To chill out or get pumped up? Bit of both really (this explains alot about Tinkers personality)

Any Musical Talents? I think I'm a good singer but I'm actually terrible.

Music experience at school? Just played the recorder because we were made to.

Radio station? Nova

Thoughts on my musical taste? Not too bad. I normally Shazam off your playlist so it must be alright.

If there was only one song you could listen to for the rest of your life, what would it be? Mario- let me love you.

The Zorks can bust a move on & off the field. Hope to see more of this action in 2013.

Tinker, thanks for dropping into Music with Merrett.

I hope this song gets stuck in your head :)

Music to start your day with....

Finding the perfect tune to consume your morning grub isn't that easy. Consider that the tune you are listening to with breakfast or in the car is most likely to be stuck in your head all day! So it better be a good one... Imagine it's a shocker & here you are at work whistling Taylor Swifts' latest song - eeek!

Here is a tune I've been recently starting off my day with:

After pouring myself a bowl of museli, turning on my Sonos, selecting a recent Spotify playlist then turning on Fox Sports News with the volume on mute. This song from Ben Howard is also a morning favourite.

I think it's the uplifting nature from these tunes that I love to start my day with.

If I hop out of bed on the wrong side in the morning I always have a "go to" tune to get those positive vibes going.... When in need, go to the classics.

What songs do you like to start the day with?

Have a good weekend guys,

Tuesday's Tunes

The Bronx should get you pumped up this morning. I will definitely be listening to this tune before Friday nights NAB cup final against Carlton.

They are touring later in the year with local Brissie boys DZDeathrays & will be a must see show.

Dropping the tempo a little, Local Natives produce a cracker with 'Heavy Feet'. This tune is uplifting, it puts me in a good mood every time I hear it.

Dan Rich- What's he like?

This chunky little character bursts on the scene with a flash of blonde hair. A ripping bloke who looks like he belongs in the surf next to Occy. Dan has a knack of getting stuff for free, he is also a crowd pleaser..... And I love having him in my team.

A regular at concerts from tickets that were complimentary, here is what he's into:

Richy Boy who are your favourite artists right now & of all time?
Right now is Alt-J & all time is Jack Johnson.

Pop song that gets stuck in your head?  Impossible - James Arthur

What do you listen to before games? City & Colour, Beautiful Girls & Art of Sleeping. I like to chill out then pump up.

Any Musical talents? I was in the choir at school for a bit but was never talented enough to be in the school band.... I didn't want to anyway :(

What radio station do you listen to? JJJ

Kareoke song? Wonderwall - Oasis

Your thoughts on my musical taste? The occasional diamond in the rough.

If there was only one song you could listen to for the rest of your life, what would it be? Jack Johnson - Taylor

Thanks Richy boy

I'm going to be interviewing a few of my team mates in the future, let me know who you want to learn more about.

I hope this song gets stuck in your head ;)
