Re: Split Enz DVD thoughts

I think they could have saved a lot of space by not doubling even tripling the sound bytes in the DISCOGRAPHY. What I mean is they had 3 best of albums and ALL the songs were re-listed as sound bytes, so what you have is many samples of the same song scattered throughout which is pretty pointless I think IMHO. I don't know how much DVD space that takes up but if it takes up a lot I'd MUCH rather wish to have all the video clips in like I Don't Wanna Dance, Next Exit & Never Ceases To...

Re: Relevance of the Finns in the music industry

sevenworlds ·
I don't think this issue of relevance has much to do with music and thats the whole problem. Its tied up in everything else...image, controversy, knowing the right people, etc. The Finns have never been considered 'cool' which unfortunately has always held them back to a certain degree. They've never been mega controversial. If they never had it back in their 20s they're hardly gonna have it in middle-age. The music shouldn't really be an issue. They write songs about things that are ALWAYS...

Without making this any sort of official comment as I always prefer to leave stuff like that up to Neil, all of us have always been fine about fans swapping live material.

Re: mix cd's for neil

Jaffaman ·
Yeah, a couple of colleagues and I made Neil a sort-of-Mixtape a while back while he was composing the score for "Rain." He was after a collection of hit songs from 1972. I was surprised how many tunes were familiar from that year but had totally unmemorable titles, recorded by forgotten artists. After all that, the "Rain" music sounds somewhat dissimilar to those songs, but at the same time really fits in with the era and my childhood memories of early 70s summer holidays. I love the...

Well, Gryph', I forsee some karma for those TV stations that wouldn't help you. It reminds me of the Little Red Rooster story we learnt at school as kids. But, sadly, it really seems like the BBC just doesn't know what a goldmine they're sitting on with the Enz footage they have. Just because the Enz weren't mega-stars (although we the fans know different), they don't seem interested in cashing in on a potentially lucrative market. There is widespread world interest in this material. Anyway,...

Re: Donny Osmond and DDIO

i heard a sample on amazon, and i was not impressed. i would normally appreciate people covering DDIO, getting it out there, spreading the good word, etc., but i got tired of that after paul young and sixpence none the richer. all these covers sound the same. nobody seems to even realize that it's a SAD SONG. SAD SONG people!!! Not appropriate for a disney soundtrack, as some of these covers would have me think. I guess I have no choice but to do it myself.

That's exactly what I have been thinking.. Especially since I heard the sixpence version, why did they have to raise everything by a semitone? Well, probably to suit the singer's voice, which isn't really appropriate for this song anyway.

Re: Donny Osmond and DDIO

Yeah, I know exactly what you're saying, it's impossible to capture it the same way as the original, but I still feel like they could have gotten a little closer, cause they all just sound neutral, I wouldn't even say they just had the underlying sense of hope and forgot the sadness. On the other hand, thinking I can do it myself might result in another DDIO cover that doesn't even come close to the original, but well i guess i have to put something behind my words now. itll have to wait...
