Sunday night foot tapper

Sunday evenings seem an ideal time to post an old classic from the Australian music archives. Back in 1981 the most popular song of the year was from a Kiwi band, The Swingers, fronted by ex-Split Enz member, Phil Judd. Given the small size of the New Zealand market it was normal for their bands to try their hand in Australia. Split Enz became successful in Australia and after splitting up Neil Finn formed Crowded House, a huge success overseas.

Tonight we have The Swingers' Counting The Beat. Try not tapping you feet to the LaDaDiDa bit.
