So, back to the 1950’s we go … possibly the only time where Cold Chisel have been followed by the Everly Brothers in any context.

We had one or two more raunchy songs earlier in the Countdown but we have landed in Innocentville with this song – two young people who have fallen asleep at the drive-in and are going to be the talk of town for their scandalous behaviour. Such was there behaviour that some of their friends are going to attack them with the stinging rebuke of Oooh La La … it doesn’t get much worse than that, does it?

The only song in the Countdown to pre-date me and a great inclusion at number 14.
