The theme for the Australian soap opera Neighbours, as sung by Barry Crocker, is perhaps Australia’s best known television theme song, and one of the most recognised internationally.

The theme song was composed by Tony Hatch, with lyrics by Jackie Trent, and was originally recorded in 1985 by Crocker, who also recorded this version released by BBC Records in 1987.

Other artists to have performed the theme song since the long-running show first aired in 1985 include Greg Hind, Paul Norton and Wendy Stapleton, Janine Maunder, Sandra de Jong, Stephanie Angelini and Daniel Boys, Garth Ploog and Bonnie Anderson. Listen to Dame Edna Everage's version.

One online critic described the Neighbours song as a ‘perfect embodiment of suburban Australia’.
