The '80s were one cool world for this Aussie band



Yesterday we featured Underneath The Radar, a song that was huge only in Australia. Since the Aussies have excellent and perhaps superior taste in music, let's fill out the week with other songs that were hits only in Australia. Australia is so cool about their '80s music that the entire country is just one Cool World.

On Lost and Found, we have been on a Mondo Rock kick this year as this makes the third appearance for the Australian band in 2016. Earlier this year we featured the original version of State Of The Heart that was covered famously by Rick Springfield. After scoring a hit with State Of The Heart, Mondo Rock's next single off their Chemistry album was Cool World. It was also a Top 10 smash in Australia peaking at No. 8 in 1981.

The video for Cool World is well, cool, as a things get off to a good start with a bespectacled guitarist emerging from a pool and the dapper gents of Mondo Rock make looking cool easy.
