How About Some Men At Work?

I'm of the opinion that the 1980s were, musically speaking, forgettable. Unfortunately, the first images I have of the era involve the hair-metal glam of groups like Whitesnake, Quiet Riot, and Twisted Sister. Bleh. Frequently, though, music from groups like Talking Heads and The Beastie Boys reminds me that there was indeed good music quietly circulating through the decade. Like today, when a friend played a cool version of "Who Can It Be Now?" by Men At Work. It's an acoustic version by frontman Colin Hay, who has gone on to have a moderately successful solo career. I think I might even like this stripped down version a little more than original, which featured a jazzy saxophone playing the main melody that you'll most likely recognize. The mp3 is downloadable below, and to boot, another another acoustic version of a classic Men At Work tune. Enjoy!

I have a hard time reading some articles,
mostly because they’re dull. You have written an
article that I find fascinating and I am glad I read it.
I hope you have plans to continue.
