Most Underrated Crowded House Songs

The Pineapple Head ·
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.

"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.

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.

DECADE REVIEW: Build Your 'Best Of 2010s' Album

Cradle2Grave ·
In the same spirit as The Pineapple Head's 'best/worst album of the 2010s' under the Finn Bros topic, here's a thread to construct your very own 'best of' album for Neil Finn from 2010-19. We're talking Intriguer, Pajama Club, Dizzy Heights, Out of Silence, Lightsleeper and miscellaneous. Try to keep it around 15 songs or less, and CH 'Deluxe' songs from Intriguer only. I'll go first. 1. Saturday Sun 2. Archer's Arrows 3. Twice If You're Lucky 4. Only Way To Go Is Forward 5. Song of the...

Love this! Glad someone else had an idea for the decade review! I'd be really interested to see anyone else's way of discussing the decade. As Painaporo said: "the problem with Neil Finn is that his best songs are almost always slow or mid-tempo middle of the road pop songs. Don't get my wrong, they're the best songs ever written, but when you put them all together the result can be a bit dull. So you gotta spice it up with some of Neil's more interesting material. Otherwise you'll lose your...
