Though Men at Work have been dismissed as a lightweight copy of the Police, their slick, funny 1982 smash "Who Can It Be Now?" is completely enjoyable in its own right. Admittedly, Colin Hay's Sting-like voice and the band's streamlined, jazzy style bear more than a passing resemblance to the Police. But "Who Can It Be Now?" is a perfect example of Men at Work's poppier, concise approach: its tight, catchy songwriting makes the perfect foil for Hay's nervous witticisms ("I've done no harm/I keep to myself/There's nothing wrong with my state of mental health") about a paranoid trapped in his house with his "childhood friend," and Greg Ham's distinctive saxophone lines give the song a pseudo-sophisticated flair. In keeping with current trends but just quirky enough to be instantly memorable, the song seems custom-built for repeated play; it's easy to see why it became one of 1982's biggest hits, as well as a definitive new wave single.
