"What About Me" is a song written by Garry Frost and Frances Frost, first recorded by Australian rock band Moving Pictures from their album Days of Innocence. It was the band's first number-one single in Australia spending six consecutive weeks on the top; there, it was the second-highest selling single of 1982. The success of the song led them to America where it became a hit, reaching number twenty-nine on the U.S. Billboard Pop Singles. The song stayed in the U.S. charts for a long time, that it managed to make the Billboard 's top one hundred Pop Singles of 1983, at number eighty-eight[1], a rare feat for a single with such a low peak position. The song made an unusual comeback in 1989, peaking at #46.

Frost wrote the song when he was working with autistic children in his day job. He had gone out to get lunch at his local shop in the Sydney suburb of Annadale and seen a small boy not being noticed waiting at the counter. He was sufficiently moved by the vision to pen the tune. It was rarely played live by the band, when it was it was in a modern country style, and it was destined to never be recorded had their debut album's producer Charles Fisher not heard Frost and Smith tinkling around with the tune on the studio piano during a break in recording. Fisher had Moving Pictures record the song and the rest is history. [info courtesy: wikipedia.org]
