Yeah that was unusual. For some reason it was more of a hit in America, was it not? Not sure how it did in Australia, but probably very well considering Air Supply are Australian. Did you know they met on the original Australian production of Jesus Christ Superstar? The one that was directed by Jim Sharman who then met Richard O'Brien when he worked on the London production, and they ended up doing Rocky Horror together. I love all these little connections. Was Bonnie's version even released in America as a single at all? I really should Google this instead of asking.
