*****
Good song from a good band.
******
Fantastic song! True Aussie classic, and within my top five Australian tracks of all time. Jimmy Barnes is a legend.

Awesome Aussie classic rock.
*****
On the surface it's rather odd to think that this song was never a big chart hit. Granted that was also majorly to do with radio banning it, as it did rather well in the South Australian state charts (iirc). Nonetheless, the song's ubiquity makes it seem like such a shock, but I imagine when this first came around, it wasn't overly instant, because it's actually a rather odd song. The main thing that's off about this, the big chorus everyone immediately thinks of with this song does not arrive until just before the 3 minute mark! Good tempo and mix of instruments. For a classic rock staple, it's aged surprisingly well. 4.7

It's great to see the Chisel back in the charts after the death of their drummer earlier this year and legendary is this song, got to be the greatest Australian song of all time.
*****
FINALLY this song gets the commercial success it deserves!
*****
Classic song from this band who come from Elizabeth (I think) and whom my dad was good friends with, I guess, 'back in the day'. :P
It's hard to believe such a well known Australian song only made it to #41!
****
Apparently a classic Australian song.
******
An iconic, classic Australian song which is one of my all time favorites. I wasn't even born when this song came out and it is a song that is impossible not to sing along to.
Great to see it chart. But alas it was due to the death of Steve Prestwich their drummer :( RIP Steve.

Every time I hear those opening piano notes I want to slit my wrists.
***
Average track that I have only heard a few times despite being a classic.
*****
5 stars
****
Lyrically very good but the rest isn't totally to my taste. It's a good song though and definitely an Aussie classic.
***
So yet another radio poll puts this at #1. What were the events that have provided the momentum for the adoration of this track? It is probably hard to pinpoint. As one of their earlier releases, was the catalyst due to this being saved (countless times) to be the final played song at their many gigs? And the euphoric wave swept from there?
Either way, this is right down the middle for me, so I'll rate this at 3.5*
