15: Throw Your Arms Around Me – Hunters & Collectors


Entered Charts:4 June 1986
Entry Point:38
Highest Chart:32
Weeks In:4

NOTE: This song re-entered the charts at number 32 on 21 January 1991, once again reaching number 32 and staying in the top 40 for 4 weeks, just the previous chart entry.

One of those songs that was mildly successful when first released, was later re-released and had similar levels of success the second time around.

One of the quintessential Aussie pub bands – remember when you could catch the likes of the “Hunners”, INXS, Mental As Anything, Pseudo Echo and the like around the suburbs – this song became something of an anthem.

Hands up if you haven’t sung along to this one … “I will come to you at night time, I will raise you from your sleep”. Really? That’s one of life’s great experiences that you have missed out on – sorry.
