Absolutely freaking love this song!!!
Men At Work has gone from what I perceived as a silly 80's band w/ goofy pop radio hits,.... to a band that I really enjoy,
(30 years later) Always thought Down By The Sea and High-Wire were great (little known) songs. One tune I used to dislike, back in the day, It's a Mistake....i s now something I really enjoy. great guitar solo. easy, but interesting!

Like this version even better than the original.
The one song that I'm happy Pandora 'Overkills' it on. (No Pun intended)
Come back another day...

I like this version much better than the original.
Just great.
Good, understated version of this song.
Reminds me of the 1984 Worlds Fair in New Orleans. This group played in The Australia Pavillion.
wahooh
better than the original

Never get tired of this acoustic version!
yale.roth
this is a great song.
love this song! loved it on Scrubs, and I love it now.
"Ghosts appear and fade away."
Love it!
I am a huge fan of artists who perform their hit songs in acoustic! I believe this is the form for which the song was birthed. I love it more so now than I did when it was Men at Work.

Nice comment Justin! Great observation and well said ;)
Listening to this song playing on Pandora: I am aware that Colin Hay is truly wedded to this song. He may sneer and revile the chord structures of Men @ Work... but this song is somehow deeply and truly him. But perhaps this song just reflects what I feel is really me-- I can't speak for anyone else. I love this song too. Overkill. yep.
