Many years later, 1988 to be exact, I was lucky enough to play in some combos around Australia. One of them was The Cracked Jaffers who recorded Little Girl for Kavern-7 Records as the Flip-Side of their debut single. Little Girl was always a highlight of the live performances with guitarists Matt Healey and David Gräbau jangling away, Justin Ward banging on the drums and Richard "Dick-O" Whelen belting out the Borich-Wilson teen lyrics written 22 years prior:
Don't you know
That I like your style
I get kicks
Every time you smile
When I'm dancing with you
I'll tell you what to do
Could it be, that you don't dig the beat?
Come on, get it in your feet!
Ahh, good times were had with this song.
