You ever heard the original version of Down Under? It was the B-side (yes, one of the biggest selling Oz singles of all time was originally an independently released B-side… can you believe it…) of their very first single Keypunch Operator and only has the barest sliver of that flute line…
I had no idea!
Can’t wait to hear it. At work, currently.
No…strangely enough, I disagree with you.
This is their best track:
And now I’m going to go and listen to the whole album
I am jealous of you listening to the whole album.
It’s really gone up my personal charts over the last five years.
Haha…it’s what you can do when you live on your own and have the whole day to do things
Going back to the INXS well for a sec, the Max Q album was one of my favourite things Hutchence did… can’t understand how this single wasn’t massive…
Have you seen Justin Hawkins you tube channel where he reviews and analyzes artists and their music ?.….pretty damn good, I think it’s Justin Hawkins Rides Again.
Yes, I watch him sometimes when he pops up in my recommendations. He does some good song breakdowns and has some good commentary on various stuff and current musical trends…
Did Kate Cebrano cover this song?
I hear her voice singing the chorus in my head.
Jimmy Little did a fine version on his ‘Messenger’ album.
Yeah, I believe she did
I reckon Dave Mason would’ve been delighted with the royalties…
