Cooler Rhythmus mit dominanten Bass. Gefällt.

Epic unique track. Split Enz had the biggest single on the Aussie charts for 1980, so why not this for the following year? 5.3*
#1 EOY in Australia, 1981.

Beschwingtes Stück der Neuseeländer ab dem gleichnamigen 1982er Album, abgerundete 4.5…

▒ Één hit wonder van de Nieuw-Zeelandse ex-formatie: "The Swingers" (☼ 1979 - † 1982), uit half maart 1981 !!! Met goed zang- en gitaarwerk van de nu inmiddels 64 jarige: "Phil Judd", uit Hastings ☺!!!
