Again, if we are thinking about the biggest names in music from the era I focus on, Simon and Garfunkel need to be considered as well. This song was one of their Australian hits are is distinctive in its rhythm – maybe a pre-cursor to some of the other genres that Paul Simon started to move towards in the 1980’s.

Beyond that, I have only one other reason to include it in Countdown at this point – I really like it and rank it only behind two or three others as my favourite Simon & Garfunkel track.
