Within myself
There are a million things
Spilling over
Falling out into a silent stream
Feel the warm wind touch me
Hear the waters crashing
See my windows wiping clean
It's my recurring dream

Within myself
A secret world returns
Over and over
Where the white flame of desire burns

Feel the warm wind touch me
Hear the waters crashing
See my windows wiping clean
It's my recurring dream

Within myself
There are a million things

Feel the warm wind touch me
Hear the waters crashing
See my windows wiping clean
It's my recurring dream

Thank you, RP, for playing so much Crowded House, Neil Finn, Tim Finn, and The Finn Brothers!! <3   
  Dancing at my desk!!
Hum, no comment since 8 years, ok let's say something, hum.... good song 
Love this song. I'm surprized it's rated at only 6.5. People's taste in music is endlessly variable. Sometimes it's because of the associations.
For me, this conjours up memories of Michelle Pfeiffer in Tequila Sunrise blasting down the California coast in an Alfa Romeo Spider . Beautiful woman, cool car, fun movie, great tune.

Excellent but not their best work.

haaaa - smiling!
One of the best STUDIO (!!!) bands around...
but this does not confirm that!

Bill and Swine-flue?

5,6,7 terrible songs in a row now!


RIP Paul Hester
The usual undiluted genius. A throwaway song of theirs, no less.

Wow... this song sucks

I love everything going on in this song: the guitars, drums, vocals, lyrics. Beautiful.

Nup. Flippin' awesome is the correct description!
Kinda sounds like The Replacements to me.

definitely they are!
Ah, ha. Great road trip song. The original version from the Ricky & Pete soundtrack is better, though.

It's from the Tequila Sunrise soundtrack. Great movie.

The guitars and their layering has a very "Big Country" sound to it. And then he starts singing it and it evolves into the Crowded House that I love. This one is new to me. And that's rare.
Crowded House are reforming. (click here) They gave a 2-1/2 hour webcast last night (Windows-only, Internet Explorer-only ) from Peter Gabriel's studio.
I saw them a handful of times as the original trio, and miss the love for them that I had then. This was something that, in concert, was a joyous romp. It might not translate to the studio cut the same, but on stage it was perfect pop.
An example of differing tastes in music, I guess, based on previous posts. This has always been one of my favorite tunes from CH and, for me, is as close to a perfect pop song as any I've heard. Easy 9 or 10.

I am a big fan of the House, but this is uncharacteristically droning and monotonous for them. Not liking it.
bah i missed it cuz i was checkin out the weepies online.

Huh. I didn't even know this song existed. It's certainly not on the CH best-of album, which is called . . . Recurring Dream. :think:

Thank you- very nice. Never heard this one before. First song I had to check out in the last hour.

Sadly, I have to agree although I couldn't bring myself to be quite as harsh on the rating. :cry:

Love you, Neil!
One of their weakest tracks. Ho-hum.
this is one of these songs that make me change radio station
Even Neil's b-side material is 100 times better than most of the dreck out these days! Always loved this track.....

I've attempted it before. It obviously makes use of a delay effect (which I fortunately have), but the few TAB's I've found online don't appear to be anything close to the same riff.
nice add to the playlist!
