I love Men at Work. There, I said it. It's true. Growing up in the '80s, I fell in love with Men at Work's catchy melodies and was transfixed by their absurdist videos. However, I wasn't so much concerned with their lyrics.
As ashamed as I am to admit it, I lost sight of the group through the'90s. In fact, it wasn't until Zach Braff reacquainted the world with lead Men Colin Hay via the Garden State sound track and Scrubs that I remembered my appreciation for the boys. And now, it's with the presence of mind of an adult (most of the time) , so I can chuckle at Hay's combination of satire and social commentary.
Lemme tell you; these songs are still a treat to listen to. Go ahead, you know you wanna.
