Working in radio is a great gig, no question.
But one disadvantage can be this: if you play a song you like too much, it wears thin on you. And a song you once loved becomes...well, ergh. And you don't want to hear it again for a long, long time. (This is why I'm thrilled we don't play any of the new Crowded House. They have always been my favourite band and I would just die if I started to sour on them. Die, I tells ya!)
The good thing is, songs fall out of rotation eventually. And so - you get a break. And when you hear them again - it's with fresh ears. I've been reintroducing myself to a couple of Nelly Furtado songs tonight: Powerless and Hey Man. Say what you will about Nelly, but the girl is good. And she's always experimenting with different types of music and I diggit.
And in case you haven't heard any of the new Crowded House - check this out. It reminds me of CH, circa 1980's (Mean to Me, Something So Strong) and it makes me full of the happy.
And while we're at it - here are some 2 of my favourite Neil Finn tracks.
She Will Have Her Way
Throw Your Arms Around Me
That last one is my favourite song, period. Ever. Big statement, I know. So, that means it can't be your favourite. You can't write it's name on your pencil case, 'kay? Just me!
And remember this?
How could I forget about THIS!? Love this song.
Oh man, I'm having the best time reminiscing on youtube. :)
