Three year old thread. But as soon as I heard Liam Gallagher's song "Bold" the first thing I thought is that if this song was sung by Neil it would sound exactly like a CH song. Instrumentation, arrangement, the lot.
Of course, Liam's nasal, whiny, vocals sound very different from Neil. But, I think that's the only difference.
Liam's new album is really good. Very Neil Finn.
For my "Crowded House-Like Song", I'd propose the new Squeeze song "Innocence in Paradise". Very Neil Finn with fabulous chord changes and introspective lyrics.
