REVIEWS

gefällt mir gut
*****
Ganz klar einer der schönsten Songs auf "Together Alone". Nicht ganz ein zweites "Always Take The Weather", aber durchaus sehr schön gemacht. Wäre auch ein toller Radiosong.
*****
gut
*****
...sehr gut...
*****
Solch poetische Texte wie von den Finn-Brüdern habe ich bis heute nicht mehr gehört...
****
geht mir jetzt nicht so nahe, okay, aber kein besonderes zuckerl..
*****
...guter Song...super Text....schön gemacht und wie gewohnt sehr gut arrangiert...
*****
Gelungene Produktion, sehr schöne Komposition. Im Sep 93 eine # 19 in Uk u. eine # 4 Can .
*****
1e single van het album "Together alone" uit september 1993. Tegen de tijd dat dit album uitkwam, was het publiek Crowded House alweer een beetje moe, daarom deed dit album het een heel stuk minder dan voorganger "Woodface". Het stond in Nederland in de Mega Tip 30 (hij moet ergens tussen nr 50 en 100 zijn geeindigd, maar aangezien er destijds alleen een Top 50 was en geen Top 100 kunnen we dat niet zien, helaas!!!!!!)
In 1e instantie vond ik het een moedeloze plaat, maar later heb ik hem vaker beluisterd op de verzamelaar "Recurring dream". Er staan best intelligente teksten in dit nummer:
"I don't pretend to know what you want" of "It's easy to forget what you learnt", klinkt misschien simpel maar kom er maar eens op. Daarom: Prachtig nummer!!!!!

Noch ein Favorit von mir. Auch hier macht der Refrain den Unterschied.
*****
Muy buena.
*****
Awesome track which deserved a higher chart placing.
*****
excellent, holds it's own amongst their classics
*****
I particularly enjoy the chorus of this one, it's a song that is lyrically great and fun to sing along to.
****
heimeliges, kuscheliges Stück aus 1993 – auf der Compi She Will Have Her Way (VA, 2005) von der Neuseeländerin Brooke Fraser gesungen worden – 4*...
*****
schöner Song
****
ordentlich
******
Super Song für einen schönen Abend zu zweit!
*****
Awesome track.
*****
one of my favs from Crowded House. Surprised to see the chart run was not better for this classic.

Eine der besten Bands der 80er/90er Jahre. Großartiger Song, der nur knapp 6* verfehlt.

tralala lala lalal la. überbewertet.

Good track.

Radiomusik halt, wie sie leibt und lebt, aber es gibt mit
Sicherheit schlechteres aus dem "Genre".....

Ganz netter Radiosong, aber längst nicht so einprägsam wie zB "Weather with you"!

Je déteste.
