John Farnham (Dagenham, 1 juli 1949) is een Australische zanger van Britse afkomst. Internationaal is hij vooral bekend i Nederland, maar in Australië is hij al decennia een van de bekendste musici.

Van 1981 tot 1984 was hij het gezicht van de Little River Band waarmee hij drie albums maakte. John begon een solocarrière en brak in 1986 door met het album Whispering Jack en de van dit album afkomstige hit "You're the voice". Het album stond 25 weken op de eerste plaats. In de Top 40 bereikte hij met dit nummer de 15e plaats en dat was daarmee zijn grootste Top 40 hit.

Sindsdien was hij in talloze producties en concerten te zien, zoals bij de Olympische Zomerspelen van 2000 in Sydney toen hij samen met Olivia Newton-John optrad.

Songtekst

I don't know what you want from me
Or what you think a love ought to be
I want something that's open and strong
As the country this road's moving on

From the mountain to the valley
From the ocean to the alley
From the highway to the river
One emotion to deliver
One heart, one way, one love
To share but not to chain
That's freedom

It's a song of the heart
A race in the wind
A light in the dark
That's freedom
It's a reason to live
And after the rain
Rekindle the spark
Let freedom ring

I don't know why it takes so long
To remember
What the world's doin' wrong
Never wanted to shove my plan or another
Who can't understand

All I want is a fast lane
To where the road across this plain
Won't take you
I want something you understand
To make us stand proud
As nothing else can
That's freedom

It's a song of the heart
A race in the wind
A light in the dark
That's freedom
It's a reason to live
And after the rain
Rekindle the spark
Let freedom ring
It's a measure of trust
When love is alive
It's tender and tough
That's freedom
It's all love is about
This opening up and letting out
Let freedom ring

From the mountain to the valley
From the ocean to the alley
From the highway to the river
One emotion to deliver
One heart, one way, one love
To share but not to chain
That's freedom

It's a song of the heart
A race in the wind
A light in the dark
That's freedom
It's a reason to live
And after the rain
Rekindle the spark
Let freedom ring
It's a measure of trust
When love is alive
It's tender and tough
That's freedom
It's all love is about
This opening up and letting out
Let freedom ring
