As '80s Week continues, World Cafe keeps combing through its archive for artists from the decade of synths and irregular haircuts. Today, that means bringing back a wide-ranging 2004 session with Colin Hay of the Australian band Men At Work. Hay's distinctive voice helped carry songs like "Who Can It Be Now" and "Down Under" to prominence in the early '80s.

Here, the singer performs a few of his newer songs and tells the story of Men At Work's international success.
