52 Songs for 52 Weeks: Week 20 – Overkill by Men at Work

It’s time to walk the streets; smell the desperation

In 1983, Australia’s Men at Work ruled the airwaves with Overkill.  Although they only released a couple of studio albums – Men at Work filled those recordings with outstanding music.  None better than this one.

One of the measures of a song is:  do you get tired of listening to it?  This is one song I literally never get tired of – it is pretty close to being a perfect song.

If you need more evidence of the timelessness of this tune – my 17 year old daughter loves it too.


Ghosts appear and fade away
