Re: I've written a Crowded House Musical. Any ideas how I could get this to Neil please?

Herbalife ·
In my opinion a Crowded House musical or stage performance could only be a comedy, and never really serious. An idea I have is, ACDC end up opening for Crowded House because they did make their 5th album and a 6th and 7th and they outsold ACDC and Michael Jackson.....and of course, then Jesus came back without any computer enhancement technology (laughing out loud...)

Cheers Spencer. Have since got myself a copy of K-Scope . Not sure I'd consider albums Neil has 'produced' as part of my canon, even if he did happen to co-write a song or two. I know Mark Hart has played with Supertramp a fair bit, even singing lead vocals on some of Roger Hodgson's songs, but has he played on any of their studio albums or sung on any studio recordings? I mean if we're including Supertramp where do we draw the line? Yeah hard to include some of Phil Judd's soundtrack work...

Hey Stew - have you considered the two Citizen Band albums (Citizen Band 1978, and Just Drive Thru Town 1979)? I’m guessing that they aren’t there because they were never released on CD, and Rust In My Car (which is on CD) isn’t there because it’s a compilation?

Not sure if you want to add Nigel's - Sleeper and Tim and Anna Paquin's - The Magnificent Nose. Just had a quick look back and you don't have either LLT EPs. Although I think they had live tracks on them.

Thanks for this list; indeed very useful for reference. I miss Tim's Rarities, Demos, Live Performances Vol. I on your list. Not sure if you didn't list it because it self-released, but just wanted to let you know.

Glad the list helps. The reason the album you mentioned wasn't included is because it's clearly a compilation �� Might start up another topic with all my compilations if anyone is interested though.

Nice list! I would add Phil Manzanera's K-Scope which like Southern Cross featured Tim on lead vocals for a few tracks. Other Enzers were also involved. Mark Hart was a member of Supertramp for a few albums before and after Crowded House. Neil was featured prominently on several Dave Dobbyn albums including as producer and co-songwriter on Twist. Phil contributed music to a movie called Amy in 1997 but I don't know if the soundtrack was officially released.

Kiita, I'm old enough that I heard "Don't Dream" when it was first released on the radio. It was a pretty big hit in the US, I remember liking it well enough, but only really became a Crowded House fan many years later when I discovered their entire catalog and realized what a brilliant songwriter Neil is. I think the lyric you quoted describes the explosion of feelings when the singer's love is with him. Probably my favorite (of many) non-Neil 80's songs is "I'll Melt With You" by Modern...

Hi Kita, Welcome to the forum, All frenz are welcome here, no matter how new. I know what you mean by Neil's songs making you shiver, we've all been there when the music speaks. However, that song wasn't the one that first had that effect on me, in fact DDIO, although now a big radio hit in the UK, wasn't originally a very successful song over here. I grew to love Finn music during the later Woodface era (the 1990's) and the first song to cause a shiver was Fall at your feet, I find the...

Welcome 😃 I can answer the first question for now. I was about 7 years old when Don’t Dream It’s Over was first a radio hit in the US. My family was driving to visit my grandparents, me and my sister were in the back seat, and the song was on the radio. It’s my earliest memory of really, really liking a popular song. I recall watching the rural Wisconsin landscape speed by and just really enjoying the song. I surely wasn’t thinking deeply about the lyrics at that age, but the melody and...

I will follow the songs that you guys...

Speaking of Eighties music, have you heard of the band Japan? They were an synth band, they were successful in Japan in the Eighties and David Sylvian also collaborated with Ryuichi Sakamoto of Yellow Magic Orchestra -YMO were great, but I haven't listened to them for years! Must look them up on YouTube. David Sylvian's solo material is also very good although it is more avant-garde, my favourite solo albums of his are Secrets of the Beehive and Gone to Earth.

Hello! Can't remember specifically the first time I heard DDIO. Probably took a while to seep 8nto my consciousness. Neil's songwriting style is not literal - that's why I love it. The lines you quote mean nothing by themselves and yet they evoke images and emotions. They are surreal and beautiful. Would reccoreco everyone checks out "Tombstone" on the Crowded House album. The lines "Look at all the plans I made/falling down like scraps of paper" mean so much to me.

Absolutely awesome stuff!! Has what I'm starting to recognise as the 'Brisbane sound' with those sunny guitar tones. Definitely a Paul Kelly/Beatles sound to it too. I can't decide whether I like this or Garden Varieties more... Keep them coming!

I am not so sure that I would recommend to Neil that he work with Paul should the offer come his way. I recently read the book "Man on the Run". Excellent read btw. It is basically Paul through the 70's and he does not come across well in the book. Not that the book was meant to purposely make Paul look bad as it appears to be based on accounts of not only Paul but people who knew or worked closely with him. He does come across as a bit domineering and difficult to work with. After reading...

I heard, also, that he is difficult to work with and doesn't accept criticism well, but I believe that if the opportunity were to arise, Neil would be fully equipped to make the decision whether or not to work with him...and, who know? Perhaps, it already has and they both agreed that it wouldn't be a good idea.

To me, Paul doesn't have the quality control Neil has. Paul continues to write incredible songs (see his fabulous recent album "New"), but can also write some clunkers. Neil seems to have a higher percentage of elite level songs. I suspect Neil has a stricter "internal critic" or has others (Tim, Sharon, Liam etc) who help him know when a song "has it" and when it still needs work.

To be honest, I suspect that Neil may share some of the traits that I described in Paul. I sure Nick can tell some stories about Neil that may not be complimentary, particularly with the first maybe 2 or 3 albums. He did have a blow-out with Mitchell Froom and that may have been because he wasn't getting his way. So, putting two people like that together may not be a good idea. With "Out of Silence", I not sure that anyone was really there to tell Neil that "this is crap", not that I think...

I've always wondered how a Macca/Neil collaboration would go but some of the previous assessments are correct about Paul not taking criticism well. There's a great podcast featuring Beatles biographer Mark Lewisohn I listened to where he tells a first hand story. Paul's then manager told him Macca had gone ballistic over Elvis Costello giving him an honest appraisal of his songs. The podcast is long but well worth a listen if you're interested in Macca. I can't remember which point in the...

“Albert Einstein was once asked, ‘How does it feel to be the smartest man alive?’, he responded, ‘I don’t know, you’ll have to ask Nikola Tesla.'” or so goes the urban legend. Perhaps the Neil / beatle guy version, was a clever update. Neil has his own legendary status, and it needn't be marred by association. IMHO, of course.
