My Music Monday
I'm going with a "Split Enz's" song,
Yes, quotes. The song is from Split Enz. I liked the song, "Six Months in a Leaky Boat", but to be honest, I liked Tim Finn's solo take on it better than the band's.
But the quotes are for that the below version isn't truly Split Enz. Yes, all three musicians - Finn, his brother Neil and Paul Hester all were in the band at one time or the other - though maybe not all at the same time. All three were in Crowded House for a time, but briefly.
Since the rest of the band isn't there, I'm not sure it is Split Enz technically.
I have a great live version on audio, but I think you are more inclined to watch video than hit an embedded .mp3 player. This one, they let Hester break into Queen's "We Will Rock You". I was not amused.
I think "Six Months" is difficult song but in a good way. It doesn't really hit many of the pop song hooks or tried and true methods, which is why I like it. And really, I challenged you to name one other song that uses the word "circumnavigate'.
Go on. I'm waiting.
