Those vikings love to fight and play...

Aussie music was big back in the early 80s - the height of my teens. Icehouse, Hoodoo Gurus, Hunters and Collectors, Mental as Anything, Midnight Oil. I've been reliving the beauty of these songs on YouTube and marvelling at the love of mop-hair, slap bass and horn sections. There were some very special songs. Remember the emotional draw of Hunter and Collector's "Throw Your Arms Around Me"?

Here's "Talking to a Stranger"

My favourite Mental As Anything song:
