Still a decent song, regardless if this was their last major hit.

Another great radio-friendly track from the guys. Very '80s pop/rock. The guitar/saxophone solo in the bridge is well done. My 3rd favourite track from the band.
*****
Colin Hay is a national treasure and of course I needed North American Youtubers to make me realise this. What a delight of a track though, from the opening 'I can't get to sleep...', building up to that titanic 'I CAN'T GET TO SLEEP...', also great sax, great chord progression and all that. Just can't stop thinking about the implications really.
