Moving Pictures (band)
The group was comprised of Alex Smith (vocals), Garry Frost (guitar), Andrew Thompson (saxophone), Charlie Cole (keyboards), Ian Lees (bass) and Paul Freeland (drums).
The band had several hit singles and albums in their native Australia, including the single What About Me, which remained at number one for two months in 1982. Its success led them to America where it also became a minor hit, reaching number 29 on the Billboard singles chart. They contributed one song, Never to the soundtrack for the movie Footloose but were unable capitalise on their initial success.
They returned to Australia, and achieved a few minor hits, but their career quickly faded.
What About Me returned to the top of the Australian music charts in early 2004, as a virtually identical cover version by Australian Idol runner up Shannon Noll. Moving Pictures is also an album by the Canadian band, RUSH.
