SOLID CITIZENS - singing in the shower ( lost hit )

Hello and welcome back ... I thought I would post this lost hit, sadly this band never had an album ( that i know off ).
 After the success of the song ( singing in the shower ) on the Takeaways - Sweet and Sour TV program in 1984, which the song (singing in the shower ) was originally sung by Deborah Conway ( band = do-re'-mi ).
 The band Solid Citizens put their spin on this single and was seen on the music show "Countdown" around the same time.
Soon after another single was released from Solid Citizens called "Care at All" which was still a good song but it wasn't as big as "Singing in the Shower" ...ahhh the memories.
The shower scene was filmed in the South Sydney "Rabbitohs"  football club... Genius 

Singing in the Shower ( Stereo Re-Master

Care at All

      So many " Lost " Australian songs that should have been bigger than they were. This is one of them.
