In 2001, the Australasian Performing Right Association (APRA) named this one of the 30 greatest Australian songs of the last 75 years. The song's writer, Glenn Shorrock, was invited to the ceremony, where he reconnected with fellow LRB founder Graeham Goble, who was being honored for the song "Reminiscing
," which he wrote for the band. They hadn't been in a lineup together since 1990 and had cut ties with the band, but they got on well and decided to make more music together. They contacted Beeb Birtles, another founder and the third piece of their famous harmony vocals. Together, they formed a group called BSG and began performing in 2002.
