Song #485: "Be Good, Johnny"--Men At Work (1982)

From their smash hit of a debut album, the guys from Down Under, Men At Work, with a song that Casey Kasem never played on "American Top 40", because it wasn't physically released as a single (you know, on a 45 RPM record) in the Spring of 1982.

My personal favorite from this group, whose songs "Who Can It Be Now" and "Down Under" seem to be the only ones who find airplay these days. They are victims of overkill. No pun intended.

I can relate to Johnny, as I sometimes daydreamed and knew I'd never be a high school athlete. I had other aspirations, sometimes misunderstood. But, I did try to be good.  :)
