Hopefully this topic will also help others complete their collection, and once the list is completed, I'll start a "Rate each Neil Finn song out of 5" topic in the forum (poll style, so I want to actually include EVERY song).
So please, if I've missed something, anything (apart from any kind of covers), please let me know! Oh... and the dates below are only rough. Here goes...
From the Frenzy album - give it a whirl.
And from Luton / Frenzy (A&M) - holy smoke
From the True Colours album:
i got you
what's the matter with you
And the stand-alone single - things
From the Corroboree album:
one step ahead
history never repeats
From Time And Tide:
hello sandy allen
log cabin fever
take a walk
From Conflicting Emotions:
bullet brain & cactus head.
message to my girl
the devil you know
strait old line
And the b-side - kia kaha
See Ya' Round:
one mouth is fed
breakin' my back
years go by
i walk away
And the 2 i walk away demos - love and success and your inspiration.
And we can't forget serge - also recorded in those sessions (?).
From the first Crowded House album, there were 9 songs (10 if you count i walk away II) + can't carry on (on some versions of the album).
And of course there was recurring dream.
10 songs from Temple Of Low Men.
13 Neil / Neil-Tim songs from Woodface.
anyone can tell
i love you dawn
i can't stand it (never released though )
the same language as me
strangeness and charm
tail of a comet
my legs are gone
in love with it all
the same language as me
^ ^ ^ WOW! Forget a double album... Neil should have released a triple album back in 1991!
12 songs from Together Alone.
i am in love
you can touch
Neil Finn also recorded a duet with Yothu Yindi, titled dots on the shells, written by Neil & their lead singer.
And help is coming, recorded a little bit later.
11 songs from The Green Album
3 new songs from Recurring Dream:
everything is good for you
not the girl you think you are
And mary of the south seas - a Neil & Tim song recorded for the Common Ground compilation.
And hamburg jam - a song recorded live in 1996 by CH.
13 songs from Try Whistling This.
Plus the b-sides:
she comes scattered
And the single can you hear us?.
And the "unreleased" spirit of the stairs.
The 10 songs that made both One Nil and One All.
Plus the 2 songs not included on One All - don't ask why and elastic heart.
And the One Nil b-sides - underestimated and now i get it.
The live recording of edible flowers from the 7 Worlds Collide album.
The One All inclusions - lullaby requiem and human kindness
Also, sweet secret peace - a song released on a compilation in 2002.
The 5 Neil vocal tracks from the Rain soundtrack:
summer of love
you don't know
orange and blue
And the 7 other Neil-penned instrumentals from the Rain soundtrack (I won't name them all).
Neil also did a duet with Deborah Conway, which was released on the 2002 Deborah Conway Best Of album. The song was called exquisite stereo, but I haven't heard it, don't know where to find it, and don't know if he co-wrote it or not. Help is appreciated here!
There was the Neil & Tim demo of the land and the sea.
Other songs performed live during this period - love is all that remains and gentle hum are all that spring to mind, but i'm sure there's more.
frank's dark past
be my guest
snake charm boogie
my old friends (cover?)
please release me (cover?)
burgler's song (written by Neil & Liam)
+ more, but we'll start with just those.
[ / END MASSIVE LIST! ]
Woah! Phew! *exausted* ! ! !
Now you're job is to let me know which obvious / obscure songs I've left out of Neil's career!
Please don't let this thread die... it took me ages to write this out! .
Thank you all in advance.
