Music from Australia and New Zealand in the year 1981:
Men At Work's promo-video for the Australian number one hit single 'Who Can It Be Now' (June, 1981) taken from the 1981 album 'Business As Usual'.
Men At Work's first single was 'Keypunch Operator', released in 1980 and making little impact. Another single titled 'Down Under' was a limited release and sold only at the band's gigs in Melbourne. The original version of 'Down Under' was recorded at a slow pace and showed no commercial potential whatsoever. After being re-recorded and re-released, the single became an international hit; thus, making the little known Melbourne band an international fad.
