Just like yesterday with Mental As Anything, it wouldn’t really be a 1980s countdown without at least one contribution from Australia’s favourite contemporary story teller, Paul Kelly. How good does this bloke go? As I mentioned the other day, a great song will take you somewhere and don’t try and tell me that you haven’t been in that Silver Top or on that Olympic Coach with Paul Kelly when he is returning home to his family. Sure one version is a little family-unfriendly but get past that you’ve got one of the great Aussie music stories right there.
