“Hey girl you with the sad face…” and so it goes on. This is perfect eighties pop fluff. I loved it because it was from Crocodile Dundee, the hilarious Paul Hogan vehicle which brought the Aussie superstar to world attention. As a song it’s perhaps a little one dimensional, but like I said it’s pop music and it’s like supposed to be one dimensional.
I bought it on 25 February 1987 – 3 weeks into its 13 week run in the UK singles chart. The song’s highest position was number 3, which was achieved in the w/e 7 March. A quick look up of Mental As Anything reveals that this was the only single which charted in the UK singles chart – a story repeated all over the world, apart from Australia and New Zealand. If you loved the song, then perhaps you might like the video of it that I have found on YouTube:
