Genre : Australian lyrical song.
Suitable for : primary to lower secondary choirs.
The combination of Dinny O'Brien's beautiful, tender words ("Balloons are dreams with strings attached, filled with the air that children breathe") and Mark Puddy's supportive, lyrical accompaniment, has made this a very popular piece with choirs since being released. Commissioned by the Australian Girls Choir , Balloons is also available in its original two part version.
