For people in the UK, Crowded House doing "Fall At Your Feet" is going to be on Top Of The Pops 2 tonight at 6:20pm (in about 25 mins). Hope everyone gets a chance to read this. I only found out 5 minutes ago!
I saw it, and what a crappy show... CH was good, but the announcer with his annoying voice spoke through the beginning & the end, and I think the end was cut off. And half of the show were "artists" that would lip-sync. There was even one when all you saw were "dancers" and no one singing or playing any instrument And what was up with the ugly visual effects in the Clapton/Elton John performance?
Man I cannot believe that I missed that one. I think my brothers (one of them is also strangely the age Ayisha was when it was first on!) may have even watched the program and I walked through the front room unaware that the probable highlight of the week was on!!! Damn pity.
Does anyone know of any other highlights coming up in the future?
'Can you imagine that An itch too sensitive to scratch The light that falls through the cracks An insect too delicate to catch? I hear the endless murmur Every blade of grass that shivers in the breeze And the sound, it comes to carry me Across the land and over the sea�
I didn't see the clip of Fall At Your Feet on TOTP2, but I'm certain that I saw it on the original broadcast back in 1991.
Bit of trivia: If I remember correctly, Neil spoke into the mike just before starting the song and said "It's Grim Down South". It was a reference to the band who were performing immediately before them (The KLF, singing 'It's Grim Up North'). Neil later admitted in interviews that he was a fan.
Can't believe I missed it - I knew it was on as well. Such a klutz. I really wanted to see that again because the original broadcast was THE MOMENT when I reawakened my love of this band. Prior to that I'd kind of forgotten about them (DDIO being the only hit they'd had here).
I just was channel hopping that night and flicked over to the Beeb and there they were. Real as anything, singing a genuine hit on a genuine hit programme. Suddenly my life wasn't the same any more
And what a song to return with... A few weeks later I knew the album BACKWARDS (my then-girlfriend knew all the songs even before she'd heard the album! I just kept singin' em) and was off to watch the most amazing gig I'd ever seen.
Got Jools Holland appearance, interview and 2 or three songs including TA class stuff. Includes Jools embarrassing Neil with the Split Enz appearance on TOTP singing I Got You. Neil nearly digs himself a whole. Talks a bit about how bands have only a short shelflife and few go beyond it successfully apart from REM and U2. That was the beginning of the end I guess

i think i've got that show on tape somewhere myself. it must be from the summer of 1994 i think. i'd been to see them live at the whitley bay ice rink a few weeks earlier when they appeared with the maori choir.
fabulous show, paul had left by then. were you there tonguetied? i remember being so hot and thirsty afterwards that i drunk a pint of lager in record time, then a second one pretty quickly too. great night that.
