"Oh Boy (The Mood I'm In)" is a popular song written by Tony Romeo. It has been recorded by Diana Trask and Brotherhood of Man, among others.


The song was originally recorded by Australian artist Diana Trask in 1975. Trask had achieved much success on the Country scene in the US throughout the 1960s and 1970s, but it was this song which became her biggest hit and signature tune.[1]

In 1977, the song was recorded by UK pop group Brotherhood of Man. The group had won the Eurovision Song Contest the year before and were looking for their next big hit when their producer Tony Hiller came upon this song. Given a new pop slant, the song became a hit all over Europe and reached the top ten in the UK.[2]

Lesser known versions include a Dutch translated "Ik mis hem zo" by Ann Christy and "Ik mis haar zo" by male duo Mama's Jasje, also Dutch.

The song is about a woman whose partner/husband is no longer with her and she sadly walks the streets in an attempt to find him.

Tony Romeo who wrote the song is best known for his 1970 hit "I Think I Love You" by The Partridge Family, which became a US No.1.[3]
