One of those songs that was mildly successful when first released, was later re-released and had similar levels of success the second time around. In this case, an exact replica – reaching number 32 and staying in the charts for 4 weeks. One of the quintessential Aussie pub bands – remember when you could catch the likes of the “Hunners”, INXS, Mental As Anything, Pseudo Echo and the like around the suburbs – this song became something of an anthem. Hands up if you haven’t sung along to this one … “I will come to you at night time, I will raise you from your sleep”. Really? That’s one of life’s great experiences that you have missed out on – sorry.
