I've heard of "Sound of Truth": an early version of "Always Never Now." But I've never heard it. I've never heard of "I Can't Stand It." Would love to hear both of those. However, At any rate, I'm fairly certain they've never been released officially in any form and thus have been left off this list.
Been a few of these posts but none of them come from anywhere later than post Time On Earth. In your opinion which Crowded House songs do not get enough praise or recognition? For me it's: Anyone Can Tell, Pineapple Head, As Sure As I Am, Even A Child and Italian Plastic.

Let's pretend you could "forget" all of a Finn song and be able to listen to it for the first time again, which would you pick? So you have no idea of what to expect. I'd pick I Feel Possessed. I'd love to be able to hear the chorus again without knowing what will happen.
Although Tim Finn has no convenient Kitchen Sink collections like that which Neil Finn (and Jaffaman) have generously provided to us fans, this is a list is meant to collate various Tim Finn or Tim Finn associated songs that have been released here and there in various forms in chronological. Due to the fact that there are no deluxe editions of Tim Finn albums as there are of Crowded House, this list of odds and sods is quite a bit longer than Neil's. I've also included prominent guest spots...
I would choose Four Seasons in One Day. I literally fell off my chair the first time I heard that song, when it got to the bridge. The sound was so unexpectedly lovely that it knocked me off my desk chair onto the floor. *laughs* I would love to be able to experience that again.
Maybe Distant Sun. It starts out pleasant but rather benign, the second verse takes it up a notch, and the bridge snaps things into focus. Then the final chorus is really resonant and poignant. Thinking back, that song was critical in really appreciating Crowded House, and Neil Finn as a great songwriter.
Great thread. Damn, does it have to be one? Oh well. I guess it would be "Four Seasons In One Day". Perfection in less than three minutes, and as Peter Paphides wrote: " Here’s another one. ‘Four Seasons In One Day’, when those ghostly harmonies converge upon Neil’s voice like vultures to a carcass. "
wow ... way too many to list. I guess it would be that "from the Gods" bridge in "Fall At Your Feet". Thank you Mitchell Froom for suggesting Neil put those verses with that chorus and that bridge and out comes what would be a once in a lifetime song for most songwriters.
In my command. Nails in my feet. In '93 I'd just found TA in a record store on a visit we took to see family, and my Mom and I listened to the tape twice on the way home. Of course it just washed over me at the time. But that's the point!
I'd pick something more left field, maybe a track off the Finn album. Perhaps 'Eyes of the World', I love the lyric. That line about Englebert Humperdink always makes me smile, and is apt for the theme of this thread (except Neil and Tim instead of Englebert!)
Great call! Luton was my most anticipated album ever! I read about the tapes in Mike Chunn’s Stranger Than Fiction book in 93 and had to wait about 15 years to finally hear them - So much expectation, so much hope and it exceeded it incredibly! The song I would choose though is “Semi-Detached”. I heard it for the first time when it was put on the “Spellbound” Best of. It just blew me away... How could an Enz song THAT good fly under the radar for so long...
I suppose this question refers to songs which really struck you on the first listen, kind of the opposite of a 'grower'. It's pretty rare for me to love a song the first time around, but here are three: Wherever You Are - Has Neil's voice ever sounded better? She Goes On - Nearly melted when I first heard the chorus Sacred Cow - Groovy but moody atmosphere, immediate earworm
Likewise w/ I Feel Possessed. TOLM was one of the first CDs I bought in 1988. Blown away when first heard this song and great lead in to rest of album. Remains my favorite CH album and in my all time top 10. In a more perfect world CH would’ve reunited in 2018 for 30th anniversary TOLM tour (which would’ve much preferred to FM tour)...

"Nobody wants to" comes to mind immediately for me. I think it's a beautiful little gem. I also love "In the Lowlands", both musically and lyrically. There's so much going on in this song. I agree with you on Pinenapple Head being underrated. It seems a silly little singalong song at first, but it's so well crafted.
For those that haven't read it, our beloved Axver attempted to rank EVERY A-side Crowded House song from the 6 albums, Afterglow and Recurring Dream Best of: https://rateyourmusic.com/list...wded-house-ranked/1/ It motivated me to make one of my own. Whilst it seems pointless, overly technical and subject to constant change, it was actually a very fun journey to go on. It really got me thinking about what I do and don't love about every song and deepened my appreciation of their entire...
Sure! This would almost warrant a separate thread, because it's always a fun conversation starter. Some people are bewildered that their favourite song ranks so low, others are happy that somebody else shares an obscure favourite of theirs, but it always makes for spirited discussion. WARNING: Long comment incoming. Here we go. Fingers of Love Recurring Dream Private Universe Catherine Wheels I Feel Possessed Nails in My Feet Kare Kare Distant Sun Tombstone Silent House Black & White Boy...
I have no clue how I'd rank all of them but my top 10 are: 1) Anyone Can Tell 2) Private Universe 3) I Feel Posssesed 4) Italian Plastic 5) Better Be Home Soon 6) Even A Child 7) How Will You Go 8) Kare Kare 9) Twice If You're Lucky 10) Weather With You
It's pretty painstaking and time-consuming. To start out, I just positioned them roughly on the list depending on how much I like them. Then I worked through the list head-to-head (1st vs 2nd, 2nd vs 3rd etc) and whenever I preferred the lower song, it would keep moving up until it 'lost'. I found the more different two songs are, the harder they are to compare. Think about Now We're Getting Somewhere and Help Is Coming. I love both of them but the sound, atmosphere and mood are polar...
All so subjective but Fall at your feet at 51 is.... Controversial! My underated tune is always Tombstone. It starts with the greatest lyrics of any song. In fact the sequence Can't carry on => I walk away => Tombstone is just a perfect sequence.
That's my favourite stretch of the album. What makes it all the more curious is that Tombstone is an extremely crowd-friendly, singalong type of song. I can understand that atmospheric, moody masterpieces like Catherine Wheels and Kare Kare are not built for radio. But Tombstone? It could easily be an all-time classic pop-rock song in a parallel universe. I mean it just oozes 'mega-hit'. Looking at the track listing, those gems towards the back of the album may have simply been victims of...
Personally if it makes any sense whatsover, I like the songs on 'Crowded House' but not the album. For me all the songs blur into one and I can't tell them apart. Not sure if anyone else has this problem or has an album that makes them feel the same way.
