Music Monday; Quintessential Aussie Eighties Edition

I have a weakness for Australian rock from the 80's. I think I own everything Crowded House ever recorded, for instance. (And that's a lot more than you probably realize.)

But this song, and this video, really perfectly encapsulate everything about Aussie Eighties - the synth keytar, the distinct guitar sound, the whole thing. When you add in all the markers of 80's videos; mullets, very high-waisted pants, suspenders, and a whole host of other strange sartorial choices, you get:

"Crazy" by Icehouse.
