Remember this song?

I've had the cassette '1983 -the hot ones' (or something similar) in my car all week. This song is on it...I remember thinking at the time it came out "how crap" (my sis had the 45) but nostalgia now gets the better or me. I didn't remember the video at all, but it's quite silly.

Another fave from 1983. And this one. I love this one too.
This one's also on my tape, and this one.
This one and this one should have been! And this one:


What was on your radio in 1983?

"Ghosts appear and fade away."

I remember an interview with Colin Hay on Spicks and Specs, he wae saying that in the US someone kept asking him for the Goat song...the one where the goats come and go? Ha, Overkill!

Omg, that tape is brilliant. I think 83/84/85 were my music formative years, classic aussie rock. Oh, Dragon, Mondo Rock, INXS, Goanna....Can you make copies????????

I loved Bop Girl. The look and feel of the video reminds me of the movie Starstruck!

Hahah, goats! I like the episode of Scrubs where he's in it singing.

I had a look in my car this morning and it's called '83 Thru the Roof'. Rachael if you email me your addy at podbobbins[at]gmail[dot]com I'll do you a copy.

On You Tube, there's a guy who uses the name NZOZ1982 (or whatever year it is) and has lots of hit Aussie Music for the year. Should check it out.

Hoppo Bumpo you must have read my mind, I've got a Starstruck song pre-posted for next Thurs! haha.

Kellie, I changed tapes this morning to '1983 The HotOnes', and 'She Blinded me Science' was playing as I pulled up to work. LOVE!
