Musical palate cleanser: We know they won’t win edition

If there’s a song to capture the feeling of romantic pessimism – not an easy concept to grasp – that has many of us in its grip today after Missouri’s loss, it’s Crowded House’s “Don’t Dream It’s Over”.

Here’s an especially bittersweet version, from their final show with Paul Hester on the drums.

    Nailed it Senator, and I have always loved this tune!
    I’ve got a version of Neil Finn & Eddie Vedder doing ‘World Where You Live’ together. It’s excellent & pretty cool to me to see who influenced who in the music world.

    Great song. Didn’t know you liked 80’s rock. There are some current hipster bands that do some pretty good 80’s electro rock.

    Check this out.

    I wouldn’t have picked you for a Crowded House fan, Senator. Great song, and a very applicable choice.

    A tribute to Dawg fans?

    You can’t depend on your family
    you can’t depend on your friends
    You can’t depend on a beginning
    you can’t depend on an end

    You can’t depend on intelligence
    ooohhh, you can’t depend on God
    You can only depend on one thing
    you need a busload of faith to get by

    I was kind of looking for “Sixty Minute Man”.

    Crowded House = my favorite band…probably ever (and that’s a tough list to whittle down to one).

    Saw them many times, including the show in Atlanta where Paul left the band, in ’94, and a very memorable Athens night at the Ga Theatre on the Woodface tour. Always thought it was cool they came through Athens.

    Thanks Senator – I’m holding on to the “we know They won’t win” idea this week, with the Gators of course being the They.
