COULD this be an omen or just really bad timing?
The ABC's regular music show was counting down the favourite songs of 1981, according to a poll by listeners.
Kelly Higgins-Devine told listeners that they were waiting to cross to Tony Abbott to discuss the leadership spill.
In the meantime, they continued the countdown and played Another One Bites The Dust, before crossing to the Prime Minister.
Prescient. @612brisbane plays 'Another One Bites the Dust' in an unrelated countdown segment, then cuts to the PM's press conference. ...— Donna Weeks (@psephy) February 6, 2015
The ABC made it very clear that the song choice was not intentional, and that the song had been selected by the public hours earlier as part of their regular Friday program.
But no doubt, the political pundits might make more of it than the broadcaster did.
What would be the song you would use to describe Tony Abbott?
