Regarded in many Australian surveys as one of the most influential songs of all time. Features in most peoples top Australian songs of all time.

This came dangerously close the becoming a "Throw Your Arms Around Me" (a song I don't think has aged very well). However, the song's intimacy and homely sound has kept it from being too tired. Neil's vocal is (as always) beautiful and the organ solo is great - reminds me of a night at Grandma's. All so very wholesome.
******
One of their best. Their sound is very unforgettable.

Beautiful ballad. So unlucky to miss #1 in Australia, kept out by some tough local competition.

Simply gorgeous song, beautiful vocals and simple melody.

When I hear it on the radio, I usually dislike it and switch the channel, but hearing it again now, it is quite decent.

3.25*.
