Hi Jon72,

The acoustic version of Overkill can be found on the 2001 acoustic CD
"Going Somewhere".  Apparently, however, the song is mysteriously
absent on the U.S. version of the album: according to, the
"import" version "Includes an Additional Bonus Track "Overkill" which
is Not on the US Version. "

The album version WITH the song can be found at:

Also, this song as well as a few other by Hay were featured on the TV
series "Scrubs", ad the song appears on the soundtrack album,
according to:

"Songs from the well-received 2001 acoustic CD "Going Somewhere" are
featured on the TV shows Dawson's Creek, Judging Amy, and the new hit
show Scrubs. Both "Beautiful World" and "Overkill" (acoustic version)
are featured on the Scrubs soundtrack, set for a September 2002 US
release (Hollywood Records). Of the acoustic CD "Going Somewhere"
Colin says, "I received so many requests to record an album that's as
close to my live show as possible. So here it is.""

If all you really want is that one track, then the Scrubs CD can be
had for a few bucks cheaper, at:

Hopefully this has answered your question adequately.  If for any

i should have mentioned that the version i said i had on "man at work"
is the same as the one on "going somewhere", another cd i have (import
with bonus track)-- and i'm pretty sure it's the same as the one on
the scrubs cd-- or i'd have bought it.

i'm pretty sure the version i'm talking about was on the website at one time.

i may have been wrong about the version i heard on the radio--
probably was the version you are talking about.

i have an mp3 of my version-- i think from napster days-- but i'd like
it on cd-- or if not-- to download the best mp3 possible.

actually, if the cd release date on amazon for "going somewhere" is
correct, june 1, 2000, then that version may not be the one i heard on
the radio, as i heard it significantly before that date.

ok -- i checked the archive at

and it doesn't match my version.

i can e-mail the mp3.  i suppose only a colin hay junkie could help me
figure this out.

I'm sorry I couldn't provide you with the right song....I didn't get
from your original question that is was "another" acoustic version of
the song.  If you would like, I'll listen to the song if you can post
it some place for download (Google Answers prohibits the posting of
private email addresses, so that is the only real way for me to get
it), and I'll have a listen, although I didn't find anythin about a
second version.  As you said, any "Colin Hay junkies" out there?
