Try drinking a few and listening to "Men at Work's Down Under". I have no connections with Australia whatsoever but in my opinion it's the best tune of all time. Why isn't it the Australian national anthem? It would work so well.

Traveling in a fried-out combie
On a hippie trail, head full of zombie
I met a strange lady, she made me nervous
She took me in and gave me breakfast
And she said,

Do you come from a land down under?
Where women glow and men plunder?
Can€t you hear, can€t you hear the thunder?
You better run, you better take cover.

Buying bread from a man in brussels
He was six foot four and full of muscles
I said, do you speak-a my language?
He just smiled and gave me a vegemite sandwich
And he said,

I come from a land down under
Where beer does flow and men chunder
Can€t you hear, can€t you hear the thunder?
You better run, you better take cover.

Lying in a den in bombay
With a slack jaw, and not much to say
I said to the man, are you trying to tempt me
Because I come from the land of plenty?
And he said,

Oh! do you come from a land down under? (oh yeah yeah)
Where women glow and men plunder?
Can€t you hear, can€t you hear the thunder?
You better run, you better take cover.


loved it! can't listen to it right now, but I read the lyrics and I can hear it in my head http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

No, sorry. I was having a laugh. (Doesn't work online does it?) Our postman's called Lex and he's from Sydney and a good bloke whose always reminded me of the drummer from that band, the bit about The Cure's true though, Boris was also the drummer for The Thompson Twins. I have to say I didn't really like either of them but Boz is a good fellow.

Anyone remember "Turning Japanese"? Talk about strange songs.

I'm a Kiwi but i still dig "Land Down under" as it applies pretty well to us as well. When I'm in karaoke here in Japan it is always one of my faves. I like Icehouse's "Great Southern Land", too, even though I really can't stretch it to fit NZ. Still at least WE have the Bledisloe Cup. (I'm immune to cricket scores by the way so that won't work on me!)

I have a slight idea , that this band was once together with David Bowie in his European tour.
It was 1982 there in concert in Sweden (Gotenburg Ulleville stadium).
The tour was "Lets Dance".
Can anyone confirm this , or do I remember wrong.

And this song is still played sometimes in
the radio. You newer get bored to it.

Good song. As the Australian Anthem though? It doesn't really extoll the virtues of our sunburnt country. As our anthem, it would end up being the punchline of so many jokes about Australia. Kinda like if Steve Irwin got Australian of the Year.....(think this through)

As for "Turning Japanese" by The Vapors, that was one stange song....catchy though. It's now stuck in my head because of the mere mention of it. Thanks Zeus....

"I've got your picture
Of me and you
You wrote "I love you"
I love you too
I sit there staring and there's nothing else to do

Oh it's in color
Your hair is brown
Your eyes are hazel
And soft as clouds
I often kiss you when there's no one else around

I've got your picture, I've got your picture
I'd like a million of you over myself
I asked the doctor to take your picture
So I can look at you from inside as well
You've got me turning up and turning down and turning in and
turning 'round

I'm turning Japanese I think I'm turning Japanese I really think so
Turning Japanese I think I'm turning Japanese I really think so
I'm turning Japanese I think I'm turning Japanese I really think so........."

This kinda was the Oz unofficial anthem for a while in the 80s. Even now when I hear it it brings back memories of Australia winning the Americas Cup yatch race and of the then Prime Minister on TV obviously delighted saying "Any boss who sacks someone for being late today is a bum" with the tune playing in the background. Only in Oz! Only in the 80s. Now as part of the "global economy" we work a zillion hours a day and the guy who financed the Americas cup challenge is a disgraced ex entrppreneur who spent time in jail for all sorts of corporate crimes. Times change.

'Men at Work'!- i thought i was the only one who remembered them. I actually prefer their song 'Be good, Johnny'. They toured europe and the USA in the early 80's but broke up shortly after that- they reckoned it was too much like hard work LOL.

As for music from that era, favourites of mine were Trio's 'Dah Dah Dah', and Depeche Mode's 'Just cant get enough'

I also cant believe people remember KB lager- it was awful stuff. The only thing worse was a disastrous ale called Sydney Bitter- it didnt last on the market long. We were on a football trip and ran out of beer- all we had left was SB and we couldnt drink it. We hijacked a ute so our coach (who was teetotal) could drive 2 hours to the nearest pub for more supplies.
Those were the days, when i had time to laze around with a hangover and whinge http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

"Whatever happened to them anyway?"

Check out Colin Hay. He was the lead singer of Men At Work. He is doing Folky-pop stuff now. It is great. His song "I dont think I'll ever get over you" (which is amazing) was on the "Garden State" soundtrack (movie is also great).
