The 101 number one song of the day was the 12th number one song to pose a question.  The first was “Why?” by Frankie Avalon but by the time today’s featured song reached number one another important question might have been, “Are you from Australia?”

In the early 80s being from “down under” seemed to get you a lot of attention.  Mel Gibson was starring in Mad Max.  Air Supply and the Little River Band had each achieved top ten singles in the states and a group which had been making around $10 a week per man got a contract from Columbia Records.  They released an album called Business as Usual and, while it took 17 weeks to get to number one, their debut single arrived at the top of the charts on October 30, 1982.  The question in the title was “Who can it be now?”  The band: Men at Work.
