You may not instantly recognise the name of the song, but it hinges on one powerful line.
‘Say Goodbye’ led the charge from Hunters & Collectors’ fourth album, 1986’s Human Frailty.
It was the first of four singles released from the album, including one of the most popular Aussie songs ever, ‘Throw Your Arms Around Me’.
But back to that one powerful line, which was written – unusually – from the female perspective.
On Monday, The Bunch spoke to frontman Mark Seymour about the band headlining the Red Hot Summer Tour at Sandalford Winery next year, but for a sec we were right back at the H&C gig at Perth’s Red Parrot…
“One of my favourite bits of that show,” Lisa recalled, “Was 10,000 18-year-old boys yelling out ‘you don’t make me feel like I’m a woman anymore!’”
Seymour agreed, that it was “a little preconceived moment I had in my writing that actually bore fruit, managing to get boys to say that.”
