Weekend Music – Colin Hay

This week I am going to recommend listening to Colin Hay. You all know him as the front man of Men At Work. I find I really like his solo work. There was an episode of Scrubs that featured Hay and a few of his songs. He played an acoustic version of “Overkill” and the episode ended with the cast singing “Waiting for My Real Life to Begin”.

His 2001 solo album Going Somewhere has “Waiting For…”, but you will need to buy the import version to get the acoustic “Overkill”. You can also find a slightly different acoustical version of “Overkill” on the Scrubs Soundtrack with Hay’s “Beautiful World”.

Might I also recommend his 2002 album Company of Strangers available at CD Baby.

The only Colin Hay I could find on iTunes was “I Just Don’t Think I’ll Ever Get Over You” on the Garden State Soundtrack (which was produced, written, and directed by Scrubs star Zach Braff) and you have to buy the whole album to get the song.
