50 Favorite Albums: 25
Men at Work is a freaking phenomenal band that is underrated for no good reason. I love their music and two of their albums crack my top fifty. Here is the first one I'll be discussing, which is arguably their most popular album, Business as Usual. Here is a collection of music that burst onto the music scene in an unexpected fashion and turned hits on their respective heads. Suddenly, Down Under and Who Can It Be Now?, the band's two most well-known songs, were on all the radio stations and at the top of the charts before Be Good Johnny proved that Colin Hay and the gang had staying power. Each side of the album features at least one hit from Men at Work which provides a familiar yet such a foreign (pft, Australia) appeal in the listening experience. They did good work.
Business as Usual: 1981 new wave album from Men at Work.
