Reply to "Songs that could be Crowded House songs"

I've just heard the Mark Seymour solo album Embedded for the first time in ages. The whole thing, with Neil's vocal swapped for Mark's could be a CH album. And a good one.  It already has a suitable cover, and I think we can guess who painted it  Paradise downunder is possibly the most CH-like song. Even the guitar solo sounds like Neil could have played it.

Having returned to this thread after a gap, I'm listening to recommendations (Squeeze currently).  EDIT: The problems of very slow threads, I see above that I've already responded to the Squeeze recommendation. 

I like the Redspencer track. But, it sounds a bit more Flying Nun than Crowded House to me. 

Again, I like the Sufjan Stevens tracks, but to me they're not so CH like. They sound more like something from Lightsleeper. Maybe with Neil's voice, Visions of Gideon could be a closing track on one of the 21st century CH albums. 

EDIT: If anyone sees this thread I'd like their opinion on whether the Mark Seymour track could be a CH track solely with the MS vocal removed and a NF vocal added. To me it sounds as if it could be. But, others may think differently.
