Where I spray-paint my thoughts…

But I will pass on the Vegemite sandwiches…


ONE MONTH TODAY we’ll be on a plane for the looooonnnnng flight to Australia!!!!! And in honour of my excitement about that, I will post this blast from the past for all your childs of the 80s like myself…

  1. I want to go tooooooooo! 🙂
    As for the video…don’t rent any old vans in Aussie land, Bruce.

  2. I have to say I’d never actually seen the video of this song before, for all the times I’ve heard the song … it’s incredily early-80s cheesy. I don’t think we will be driving across the outback in a rented van though.

  3. I’ve never seen the video for that either…I guess we got MuchMusic a few years after the States got MTV…

    Watching it now, I’m quite happy I didn’t see it back then!

  4. Cheesy? Cheesy!? Down Under is a great song. I’ll have to send you guys some new music from Colin Hay (the former lead singer for Men At Work). He does a mostly acoustic version of this song that is just amazing.

  5. Oh, there’s no doubt the song is great. But you can’t seriously be making any claims for the artistic merit of this VIDEO, can you? I just find it hilarious in the “so bad it’s good” kind of way.

  6. Oh, the video *is* terrible. They must have had one of their friends producing it.

  7. Or one of their enemies.
