40 years ago today, on July 23rd, 1978, The Sports played  "When You Walk In The Room" on Countdown, introduced by none other than Dame Edna Everage.

The track was the second single off their debut album, Reckless, and it peaked at #42 in the Australian charts. Originally written and recorded by Jackie DeShannon in 1963, it was also released to commercial success in 1965 by The Searchers.

Personally, we rate this Aussie version as the best!


Of course, you can listen to the whole album on Spotify here...
