Icehouse – Hey Little Girl

“Hey Little Girl” was the second single released by Icehouse in October 1982 of their album ‘Primitive Man’. It was released on Regular Records in 7″ Vinyl Single and 12″ Vinyl Single formats. UK and Europe releases by Chrysalis Records were also on 7″ and 12″ formats, but with different track listings. The single was then released in the US in 1983 on same formats. “Hey Little Girl” features Iva Davies using the Linn drum machine – the first for an Australian recording. It peaked at number seven on the Australian singles chart and #2 in Switzerland, #5 in Germany, Top 20 in UK, Sweden and Netherlands, and #31 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart.
The U.S. cover for the single features a still from the Russell Mulcahy music video for “Hey Little Girl”.
In 1997, a series of re-mixes of the song was released in Germany on the Edel Music label. Another remix version by Infusion was released on the Icehouse album Meltdown in 2002.
The song has been covered by Sven Schumacher, German metal band Atrocity, horrorpunk band The Spook, and Kate Miller-Heidke.
