Hi - my first post - just a question concerning writing credits and I apologize if this topic has come up before (I couldn't find it). I was looking at the BMI credits for Neil and Tim because I noticed some discrepancies between different sources on who wrote what for various Finn-related material (for instance, Neil has credit on "Six Months In A Leaky Boat" in some places and not in others - not in BMI). "Last Day In June" always stood out as odd because it is a solo Neil writing credit on a Finn Brothers album, but I noticed that "All The Colours" off "Everyone Is Here" is only listed on Tim's BMI credits and NOT on Neil's. I tend to think of BMI as the most reliable source since Neil and Tim get paid according to BMI's keeping track of who wrote what and when it's played - so I assume the Finns have people who make SURE BMI's information is correct (unlike, say, the Discogs website or AllMusic). Everywhere else I've looked credits both brothers as having written all the songs connected to the "Everyone Is Here" sessions - except BMI regarding "All The Colours." Does anyone know if it is, in fact, a Tim Finn solo composition or has BMI made a mistake and Neil did, in fact, co-write it? If it's the latter of the two, then is Neil aware he's missed out on royalties for "All The Colours" for the last 12 years (not that it's gotten much airplay)?
On a side note, I'm curious why many of the new bonus tracks from the CH reissues have not yet been registered and/or listed on their official BMI repertoire lists. I'm surprised the songs weren't registered at the time they were first written/recorded, not to mention since they've actually now been officially released.
