A good happy sing along tune.

First heard this on the TV show Scrubs and loved it so much I went on a search for it.

There is something magical about the acoustic guitar that suits this song very well.

I like many people heard this version on the TV show Scrubs. The song was always a great tune for me, as I was an instant fan of Men At Work after their first album released in the early 80's. Overkill the original version would come on the radio from time to time and I would always give the song it's well deserved volume crank, alas Overkill, like many classics fell out of rotation for on air play, and I kinda forgot about the song altogether. Then came the show Scrubs and when I heard this version, full of emotion, rife with feeling....just left me wanting more. Colin Hay has a voice like no other in the industry, and his mark on the music industry is truly indelible.

This song was in a episode of the TV show Scrubs. There is a part where he keeps singing and playing the guitar and because it's a very happy, upbeat tune it drives one character crazy and he grabs the guitar and wacks it to bits. I'm pretty sure this is his solo version of the same song done by Men at Work. He was the main singer of that Aussie band. A good happy sing along tune.

A song that seems to fit no matter the year - timeless.

TO AMAZON: Even though I didn't feel like saying anything else about this song and because you "required' me to title my rating and "required" a minimum of 20 words in this description, I don't believe I shall rate ANYTHING ever again. Ratings are voluntary; they should not have ANY "requirements". Amazon has been where I buy my books, Kindle books, mp3's, camera accessories, and more for many, many years!!! I also paid for your MP3 Cloud (Premium) year subscription even though there are a lot of FREE cloud players. But if you continue barraging me with "rate" emails, I will leave and find another place to purchase what I want or even need. Additionally, since I now have a tablet, I didn't need my Kindle Fire anymore so I gave it away. Therefore, I don't even really need "Kindle books"; I can get ANY ebooks from anywhere. And I added all this in because of your "requirements". You weren't satisfied with my initial 11 words that were all I REALLY wanted to write.

This guy was in an episode of Scrubbs and he played this song throughout the episode. It was stuck in my head soo bad that I shazammed it and downloaded it. It was the main song that I listened to for about a week. I just love the track, it has great flow. His voice is calming, the guitar sounds great. Anyways, I have not heard any of his other music to my knowledge, but I highly recommend this song :)

There is something magical about the acoustic guitar that suits this song very well. Maybe it is the softer final product, or the fact that the song has been allowed to age to a more simple yet complex song cordwise that allows the song to breath. I prefer it over the original by a long shot.

I first heard this version of Overkill on Scrubs and loved it. It is one of those songs that get stuck in your head and you can't stop singing it. I do like the original Men at Work version; however, I like the softness of this version. Great song!

I got the see Colin Hay live in Michigan in the summer of 09 and his solo music has been all over my phone and mp3 player since. Can't get enough. If you think you know him from Men at Work... you only know a small, small part of who Colin Hay is.

Heard this version on an episode of Scrubs and just had to download it. Makes me want to go back to listen to all my old 80's cds, and download more of Men at Work's acoustic versions on Colin Hays CD.
