So I need to create a best of compilation for Neil's solo work as one of my friends would like to hear some of his songs and that is her preferred form to experience music for the first time. As we know, there isn't a best of album.

Has anyone suggested a best of on a different thread on the forum? If not, what songs would you put on it?

Original Post

Taking a quick crack at it, ordered roughly chronologically and obviously weighted earlier in his career:

She Will Have Her Way

Sinner

Astro

Addicted

Driving Me Mad

Last To Know

Lullaby Requiem

Into the Sunset

There Is a Light (from 7WC)

In My Blood

Chameleon Days

Terrorise Me

Excellent. Here's what I recommend. You see 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 listener. With that in mind, I like something along these lines:

  1. Bodhisattva Blues - 7 World Collide
  2. Can't Put It Down Until It Ends - Pajama Club
  3. Hole in the Ice (One All mix) - Neil Finn
  4. The Spirit of the Stairs (Neil solo version circa 1998) - Neil Finn
  5. Nothing Wrong With You - Finn Brothers
  6. Flying in the Face of Love - Neil Finn
  7. Souvenir - Neil Finn
  8. Last Day of June - Finn Brothers
  9. Won't Give In - Finn Brothers
  10. She Will Have Her Way - Neil Finn
  11. These Are Conditions - Pajama Club
  12. Last to Know (One All mix) - Neil Finn
  13. Anything Can Happen - Finn Brothers
  14. Dizzy Heights - Neil Finn
  15. Tokyo - Neil Finn
  16. Chameleon Days - Neil Finn
  17. Sinner - Neil Finn
  18. Driving Me Mad (One Nil mix) - Neil Finn
  19. Last One Standing - Neil Finn
  20. We Know What It Means - Neil & Liam Finn

This is amazing Painaporo! Out of curiosity, do you have anything similar for Tim?
