To the best of my knowledge this song (I'll Make You Happy) was only released on an EP in Australia. Later on it was on a few Lp's. The EP was called 'Easyfever' and I still have a copy here.

Flash In The Pan recorded 'Down Among The Dead Men, Hey St Peter and Waiting In the End'. These were all big songs around the world.

As Vanda and Young they also wrote 'I Hate The Music, Yesterdays Heroes and of course 'Love Is In the Air' which was a huge hit around the world and is still played at weddings etc. Plus there were many more songs. These were all world wide hits and had many cover versions.

As a boy i remember waiting up until 12am to hear the new song "Friday On My Mind' being played for the first time on Australian radio. I was mesmerised by the guitar lick. The Announcer played the song 4-5 times due to demand.

As well as many other countries they were huge here at home and also in Germany.

A very talented under appreciated band.

I also liked 'Pretty Girl'.
