I'm really close tonight
And I feel like I'm moving inside her
Lying in the dark
And I think that I'm beginning to know her
Let it go
I'll be there when you call

And whenever I fall at your feet
You let your tears rain down on me
Whenever I touch your slow turning pain

You're hiding from me now
There's something in the way that you're talking
The words don't sound right
But I hear them all moving inside you
Know
I'll be waiting when you call

Hey, and whenever I fall at your feet
Won't you let your tears rain down on me?
Whenever I touch your slow turning pain

The finger of blame has turned upon itself
And I'm more than willing to offer myself
Do you want my presence or need my help?
Who knows where that might lead
I fall

Whenever I fall at your feet
Won't you let your tears rain down on me?
Whenever I fall (at your feet)
Whenever I fall

I like the cut of your jib, young man.  Crowded House deserve to be appreciated .

This album reminds me of a great drive from NH to Stowe VT in 1991. Being newly married, no kids, October days, not much money in our pockets, hardly any responsibility except trying to figure out where to stay the next few nights. Such a long ways ago. sweet times.   
 
Nice.  It's amazing how a song can take you to that exact place & time.
{#Devil_pimp}zesty ! can never go wrong with the finn bro's

I used to call Crowded House my guilty pleasure- but then I stopped feeling guilty, and continued to listen to Crowded House.

 

 Never feel guilty for listening to the Finn brothers!

Yep, guilty pleasure for sure. {#Smile} 


Pleasant monotonous driving music. Overated, but at least they are good musicians.
Always marvelous.
I'd always liked this group, but never noticed any great depths to plumb until this album... It awakened me to the astounding musical genius of Neil Finn and the talent and enigmatic personalities of his band-mates. They were at their best on this and "Together Alone."
Been listening to Crowded House for 30 years, saw Jesse Cook live do this song as a encore, was wonderful the whole audience singing. Must be CH fans...
{#Yell}  There's no shame whatsoever in loving Crowded House!  I'm proud to say that I do!

This band was one of the great ones in the history of pop music. The shame would be in not appreciating them.

Nothing to be ashamed of, great harmonies and emotion in their music. still listening after 30 years.{#Bounce}

3 plays in the last 30 days. That's 3 plays in 720 hours of non-stop music. Hardly overplay...
 
It doesn't bug me, but Split Enz and Crowded House were just played today within 30 minutes.  My guess is he's referring to any project with one or more Finns.

Okay, RP this is a first for me after many years of support and listening:  For Gawd's sake, please stop playing multiple Finn Bros tunes every day!!  I am beating my head against the wall now because of the commercial radio-grade repetition.  Too much of a good thing is ... TOO MUCH.  I love The Beatles, but would speak up the same if I heard this same kind of repetition of their work, and the Finn Bros are no Beatles.

Now a 6 >> 2.  That's due to the overplay.

Bill, while we are on the subject of bands from Downunder, how about putting The Triffids on the playlist (if you haven't already).I'd suggest Wide Open Road and Jerdacuttup Man.
 
Absolutely spot on.  Some TRIFFIDS BILL.
Distractingly lovely....

10...natch...{#Crown} ....well, I just read below and that made me smile...yes, 10. 

                                                                                     Try Crowded House 'Private Universe' for an 11
Believe it - definitely 10.  Also it may not have been a big song overseas but start this in a bar full of Aussies or Kiwi's and watch the majority of people sing along.

Not even a slight exaggeration. Absolute 10

it is most excellent, and reading down the comments I find great praise from so many beautiful people, it's a continuing joy reading through it all!  Peace my friends
Those first few albums by this band defined a period of pop music that was maddeningly brief and beautiful.
A pop masterpiece. Finn's voice is sublime. Sometimes after I hear this I have to hit mute for anything that follows so I can just absorb the after-effects of it all. And as others have noted, Jesse Cook's version is also lovely.
he could sing the phonebook and it would be excellent.

Totally. I have no recollection of this song, but it is so good.

 This song reminds me of when I lived in Australia and it brings back a lot of fond memories.
{#Yes}    {#Yes}    {#Yes}      ......... singing, song writing & music production of the highest standard.

To be honest, this is not a group I would have expected to hear here...I find them sub par

One of the best albums of the 90's, beginning to end.
Great tune. Sentimental and sweet.
{#Notworthy}
Cool!  A month has gone by and here is this gem again, reminding me how solid it is...and how it used to rivet me to the spot — and still does!
Is it really possible that this is already over 21 years old?  What a line-up they had on this record and tour, and what an incredible show they gave at CU late summer/ early fall of '91! and whoah, what a fantastic collection of excellent songs on this record...MAGIC!  I still often put it on and let it play through and again...there is something both melancholy and intensely joyful about the whole effect...

I do not know the versions discussed here, but this song by the Crowded House is included in my life's soundtrack, a beautiful song...

Yes I've always felt this wonderful song is slightly let down by the production here. Would have loved to hear what Youth could have done with it - much preferred his style on 'Together Alone' to that of Mitch Froom on the earlier albums.

This song puts a spring in my step this winter night...

Not bad, but the Jesse Cook version with Chris Church on vocals has much more passion, sounds much less mechanical. I'd pick it over this any day.

Nice metaphor, but I would use it with something else.  This song is great.

What does that even mean, and how can it possibly be relevant to the quality of their music?
 
The Rolling Stone reviewer took offense to the depiction of certain social strata in this country in the song "Chocolate Cake." I, OTOH, thought it was hilarious. And, no, it had nothing to do with the quality of the music. Even for Rolling Stone, which can get out there, this particular review was wa-a-a-a-ay out there.

I worship this LP as holy text delivered from the gods.

To give the ones who do (at the times they do) distinction.

P.S. Why can't all women be worthy of receiving sentiments like Neil's all the time?  Same answer.




"Whenever I fall at your feet...you let your tears rain down on me."

Very pretty.

Hmmmm... Thats was nice. Didn't knock me over, but it was nice. I gave it a 6, but I'll give it time.I'm sure it'll grow on me. :)
Beautiful song one of my favorites
Beatlesque -- nice.
This band just always turns me one... It is so easy to listen to, Thanks Bill!
I worked a show with Neil Finn back in 2002 or so... he's a VERY nice guy. Amazing show at a small club. I feel priviliged to have worked with him. This song is a solid '9' for me.

I'm not sure I see what you mean by dated. It sounds pretty fresh to my ears.
This song is like waking up on a beautiful summer morning with the sun shining outside. Just makes me feel good all over.
As much as I love this song, the production sounds dated now. (Argh, I hate Mitchell Froom!) The song is awesome live, though, with the audience singing harmony vocals.
Tune!!

Glenn Tillbrook of Squeeze has covered this song many times in his solo shows.

Begged for my first radio on my 6th birthday. So, I beat you by one year at least. I agree with your appraisal of this CD thoroughly!
