I remember my sister bringing home Live It Up by Mental As Anything on a 45” single. She had heard it in the Crocodile Dundee movie and played it out loud on repeat. This meant that I also had to listen to it! And soon I was as hooked as my sister with this great and to me happy song. So there we were two teens shouting (would not call it singing) the lyrics the best we could.
As far I know Live It Up is the only hit from Mental As Anything – at least I do not recall any other songs by them. A fantastic sing-a-long one hit wonder if you ask me.
You can find the song Live It Up on the album Fundamental by Mental As Anything.
Highest chart position: UK singles chart #3.
