    I remember seeing this song on Countdown when it first hit the airwaves back in the day.

    Everyone was talking about it the next day at school.

    Wonderful band! Ahead of their time.

    Thus have I heard....

    Here's a little Dharma practice the Buddha wrote,
    you might want tp practice note for note...
    Don't worry be happy...
    In every life we have some trouble/Dukkha
    and if you worry/cling you make it double...
    So don't worry/cling be happy

    My 8 year old son and I always choose one song each to listen to at bedtime. Obviously he likes the more modern stuff but I like to pull something out from my childhood.

    Chose this timeless classic tonight.

  • Mi-Sex Wiki time!

    "Mi-Sex gained publicity during 1980 due to then-Prime Minister of New Zealand, Rob Muldoon.[5] His government had imposed a 40% sales duty on records, much to the objection of the New Zealand Arts Council, record retailers and record companies.[5] On 21 April, Muldoon claimed that popular music was "not culture", stating that "The records sold in this country are not Kiri Te Kanawa's, they are 50 to 1 those horrible pop groups and I'm not going to take the tax off them."[22]

    Mi-Sex were due to start a major New Zealand tour five weeks later, and – sensing an opportunity for publicity – Kevin Stanton invited Muldoon to attend their Wellington concert during a radio interview in Hamilton, an invitation which Muldoon was urged to accept when quizzed by the opposition in parliament.[5] The Prime Minister attended the concert along with his daughter (who reportedly loved the concert) and met with the band after their performance, but the sales tax remained.[5] Muldoon was pleasant but Burns recalled seeing a newspaper article the next day in which he was quoted as saying that it was about as cultural as On the Mat, which was a wrestling show of the time.[5][20] "

    Good old Piggy Muldoon! Reminded me of another leader (that unfortunately NZ exported over here) called Joh Bjelke Petersen. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joh_Bjelke-Petersen
