MEN AT WORK - Down Under

This song is a Platinum-certified single recorded by the Australian new wave rock group Men at Work and was released as a single.
Even though the song was recorded in the early 1980s, I love the vibe of this song. When I heard the name of the song, I thought it would be some slow ballad type song, but once I heard the song, I knew I was wrong. I like the energy in this one, there is the right amount of everything. The chorus is catchy and the lyrics seem really nice and the performance is also spot on.
