A Music Blog (#22: But where are we going?)
Updated December 20th, 2012 at 3:45 AM by bobandbill
Going to start with some songs with guitar solos in the next update if not after (as mentioned last blog), so if you want to suggest something sooner is better than later!
But for now this song! (Even if it does also have a solo it's not imo a defining feature of it). Let's go with a Australian (and New Zealand) band now in Crowded House, who have a number of neat songs worth checking out. This one is not so well known for whatever reason despite its (imo) nice intro and fairly emotional vocals in the chorus later on too, so I figure it's worth a feature. You might also know some members of the band if you're familar with Split Enz (I Got You, I See Red...) and various others.
I don't think they'd win any awards for the low-quality music video, but oh well. Maybe people falling about in snow is your kind of thing. The first five seconds makes me laugh with that face though!
On second thoughts, the guitar solo part, although simple, does its job well in leading into the chorus again. That third redition of it is my favourite as that's when the vocals really shine. (Around 'Ooh tell me please' - just sorta shouts/screams it while keeping with the music.)
Lyrics are nice too in that they tell the story well while giving the song that reflective tone in the beginning. The last line I don't really like however (I'd say somewhat unnecessary and a bit hard to follow), but oh well, at least the song still rounds out alright.
