What is the Men At Work Song “Be Good Johnny” About? [VIDEO]
Every time I see the title of this song I think of "Bye Bye Johnny" by Chuck Berry. It's funny how titles/songs stick in your mind. The song is off the "Business As Usual" album, released in 1982, and one of the better songs on the album.
According to lead singer Colin Hay "It was a song written from the standpoint of a 9-year-old boy. His parents are constantly telling him to be good and he feels like he understands some things but is completely misunderstood by the adult world" Sound familiar?
